i think a lot of people are missing the point of why the iPad is so huge other then its an Apple product. It not being a laptop or full computer doesnt matter. Most average users of computers use their computer to surf the web, watch videos, listen to music. most people dont burn dvds or play high end computer games, and if they play computer games well you have an appstore full of games that are customized for the iPad. Its not trying to be a computer its trying to be a media device that plays videos, lets you surf the web, read a good book and even play games. all of these things are what the average user does and that the iPad does well.
