[QUOTE=Blu-rayFreak;2520833]Most people do a majority of content consumption, rather than content creation. For email, the iPad supposedly works pretty well. With all that said, I can definitely see why the iPad is eating into netbook sales.[/QUOTE]
I can see that. The people I know who do own iPads already are absolutely thrilled to own them and do, I believe, just use them primarily for content consumption and the occasional tweet, email, or other short interaction.
Also, I should note that I have one of the 10" netbooks rather than the 8.9" and the extra inch makes a big difference. That, coupled with the fact that I have unusually small hands & fingers make the 10" netbook remarkably easy for me to use for just about anything I need to do.
