I plan on getting a MacBook Pro soon (my first Mac!) and was looking to expand my Apple family with the iPad. I waited for the announcement like everyone else. At first I thought it was the coolest thing! It suited my needs perfectly. I would be able to listen to music, watch movies, go on the Internet, download books and send e-mail without a bulky computer. Then I read it does not have multi-tasking. Really? THAT was a dealbreaker. I am a multi-tasker. I want to be able to IM, read e-mail and listen to music at the same time. Get on that Apple!
