I went to the Apple store today to buy an iPad. They didn't have any. When I got home, I ordered it online. They told me it wouldn't ship until the end of July. I wanted it for the seminar I'm going to on July 6.
So, I bought this, instead. And $500 less than I would have for the iPad. I think it'll do just fine, since it's not even close to being my primary computer. Just an accessory.
