I want iPad? Here's why or why not!

It all began with the iPod. Now there’s iPhones, iTV, iTunes, iTouch, and the new iPad. Kidzworld takes a peek at this sleek new way to read books, watch movies, play games, browse the net and use all those apps that can make life easy.


Sweet Size

The iPad is somewhere in between an iTouch and a MacBook. The main reason why you might want an iPad over the iTouch is because of the size. They both can do everything the same, except sometimes it’s just a little too small to be reading off a 3-inch iTouch screen.


Back in Business for Books

The iPad is really easy to read. It’s light and easier to hold just like the perfect book. It’s the most perfect thing for the latest craze… eBooks. Libraries are back in business because of eBooks. Now when you sign up for a library card, you can load up your iPad with eBooks from your public library.


Classroom Companion

Another great way to use an iPad is at school. It makes organizing fun and easy. There are tons of ways to keep track of all your school projects, schedules, and friends. Not to mention if you ever have to make a little class presentation, you can quickly refer to videos on youtube, maps on google, or picture slideshows that you create.


Losing to Laptops

OK, the iPad is a lot cheaper than buying a laptop, but even an older model MacBook has a lot more functionality and you can probably get one for the same price. Laptops are just easier to type and use big programs like Word, Photoshop, Video Editing, and just most types of actual work. Laptops can connect to printers and other devices with USB that your iPad won’t.

Overall the iPad is just a luxury that should not be considered a replacement for your computer. The iTouch still rules over the iPad in terms of Bang for your Buck.

I'm not saying the characters they have are bad choices, they just don't have enough characters to choose from considering the Wii U is more powerful then a PS3 and a Xbox 360.

super Smash bros for wii u doesn't have any new characters that makes me want to pay $50 when the magorady of the game is Brawl with upscalled + graphics, touch screen gimics and 30 (something) characters on BOTH the wii u and the 3ds verson. for the 3dS it's alriht, but for the Wii U this isn't lookin to good. The wii u is capable of more then that if it can run assasin's Creed 3. I'm still gettin the ame though.

Well, we both hope that Super Smash Bros for Wii U will really save it. I doubt that, but I hope Nintendo doesn't screw up this version like they did with Mario Kart 8. Mario Kart 8 SUCKS compared to Mario Kart Wii... maybe it was best for you to rent the game, because you would SLIGHTLY be disappointed when you beat the game and play online. By the way, I'm getting the new 3DS LL that's coming out next year.

To make a point, that Nintendo needs to do something or the Wii U will be the next virtual boy with no ames. I don't mean literally, no aames but it's missing 3rd party games that last gen consoles are etting such as the PS3 and Xbox 360.
