Not an optical drive - but the ability to at least play back BluRay movies would do. Flash. Multitasking. Camera. Larger Hard Drive.
I think these are all features which are technologically available, but we are unfortunately trapped in the Apple game. "Wait for the next update, replace your device. Repeat." It's something that happened with the iPod touch, and which I'm sure will happen with the iPad. For example, the 3G[S] camera - the technology for a 7MP camera is there, but we'll have to wait until the next update (perhaps) for this.
This is what people here are talking about. We're not requesting a time machine - just things which are available in other devices. Is the iPad a good device? Yes. The iPad is definitely useful for some users (especially casual Apple users). But it lacked the expectations of many users who know what it could have been capable of.If I helped you out, please use the Thanks button ------------------------->

I would have liked to see a larger harddrive and webcam. But honestly I never use the cam on my MBP, so it really doesn't bother me. I think a lot of people were caught up in the hype

Yeah, but another user who doesn't have an extra camera would have used it. I rarely use my iPhone camera, but as a company you want to attract the max spectrum of users. And honestly I don't think the iPad is capable of doing so. I think a larger HD and flash would have sold me. Multitasking will probably be achieved after jailbreaking (hoping here).If I helped you out, please use the Thanks button ------------------------->

Honestly I think you will see multitasking and flash with 4.0

The iPad is a complete and utter failure and let down. If you like it, you're just too deep in the Kool Aid to see the truth.iEat. iSleep. iPhone.

I am disappointed with this. Not even a bigger space than the iPod touch and not a lot of features or certain feature that will get me that. Rather get a netbook or a Mac mini.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say the ipad was a lot better before apple anounced it
on another note the ipad will have flash eventually! adobe confirmed this so that's one disappointment down 27.4 to go

yup. thats how they make their money, by upsetting the people that buy it first, then those people will ebay it and get the next gen, getting something that should have been there the first time. its all a scheme, i mean, since apple engineers are sooo innovative, they can't think of what should be in a product,takes them a whole nother year to figure it ??

@ StealthBravo - Those who need and use a webcam should have it on the iPad or any other Apple made device...Nokia phones have had double facing cameras for ages.
This forum is highly informative on everything Apple (Macs, ipods, iphones and now iPads ), let's keep it that way.

maybe they did and we are forgetting the patent on camera lenses built behind the screen... let the conspiracy theories begin! lol

I said this before that the iPhone and iPad will have the same OS to begin then the iPad will go off on its on with its on variations leaving the iPhone out and vice versa. This is what they mean by based on the iPhone oS which makes this worse for iPhone fans who want so much for their device, can you imagine the iPad getting a cool software tweak the iPhone does not! I mean the iPhone was here first !!
But the iphone that they may release in the summer will hopefully have a few new tricks up its sleeve to increase the desirability of wanting an iphone over the ipad.
I decided that although it is cool the ipad I would never honestly have any use for it, none whatsoever.

Optical drives are becoming obsolete on portable computers this day and age. They are bulky unneeded hardware and I am glad one was not added to the iPad. I would prefer not having one on my MBP to be honest. If they had added it then people would complain that the tablet was over an inch thick and weighed more. The idea is for a portable device. And if you had read my post, I said that I would have liked to see a web camera but its absence doesn't really bother me because I never use the one on my MBP. I also don't think HD is needed on such a small screen.
I would love to have all the features that everyone else wants but I still see some value in the features that the iPad does have.
