Re: Just posted: Apple iPad 2: Tool or Toy?

The Samsung is hardly the only non-Apple ultra-portable. There's hardly a manufacturer that doesn't offer a ultra-portable of some sort, the Lenovo X220 mentioned earlier is a good example. It's true that by bundling SSDs with all Macbook Airs they're able to offer SSDs at very competitive prices, but on the flip-side you'll be stuck with outdated processors.

And as you can see, the performance improvements of Sandy Bridge are very, very notable. The iPad 2 is actually the first Apple device I know of where I can without a doubt say that it offers really spectacular value.

The irony is that Apple has actually become the price leader in certain devices. Strange but true. Take, for example, their MacBook Air. Samsung recently came out with a competitor to the Macbook Air. But Samsung's Macbook Air competitor, the 9 series, is $300 more expensive than the Air.
