Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows: Apple iPad Hands-On First Impressions

Summary of Paul Thurrott’s first impressions 

Right off the bat, I'm glad to see that my initial reactions to this thing were accurate. Anyone who believes this thing is a game changer is a tool. I'm sorry, but that's just the way it is. The iPad is nice, as we knew it would be. But it's bigger and much heavier than I'd like for a movie player or eBook/newspaper reader, and those were my own personal primary use cases. That so few early reviews called this out says a lot about those reviewers. My kids would get tired just holding an iPad. Is it made of lead?

Short version: It's an Apple product through and through. You don't need it. But I get that you might want it. Apple does have that effect on people.
