QOTD: How Much Would You Pay for an iPad?

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 256 comments

How cheap would it have to be?

The iPad is hitting stores tomorrow and although many feel the product lacks in the features department, analysts are predicting Apple will sell between 6-10 million of these babies in 2010 alone.

Still, 10 million isn't everyone on the planet so there are a lot of people who aren't buying an iPad for one reason or another. Some think it lacks obvious features that will likely be added to the next iteration (à la the iPhone); others don't like the fact that it doesn't run a full OS, can't multitask and doesn't have a camera.

Though their reasons may be different, there are a lot of people who can't justify spending between $500 and $800 for the device. So today's Question of the Day is: How much do you think the iPad should be sold for? (feel free to break it down by storage and 3G too.)

    $199 CAD for 8gb, $229 for 16gb, $279 for 32gb, $349 for 64gb. I have no use for 3g, but if I did, I'd pay an extra $50 for that.... maybe.

    Between a cellphone and a netbook say 180 - 230 USD.

    Whats the point of this? We all know Apple is going to overprice it. Doesnt matter if a billion of us screem $200, it will still cost $400.

    Isn't the most expensive part of it the panel? I would think that would be a limiting factor in how much it would cost, since that to me is worth it.

    Lets just put it this way.... If there was one laying on the ground in the local park while I was on a late night stroll, I wouldn't pick it up...

    I would not. I would buy a netbook that has larger hard drive some with much longer battery and can close it when not in use to keep from hurting it. I myself really don't see any need for this. ipod touch is nice,small fits into my pocket and can do what this does.

    this article should open up a can of worms...

    That being said, $150.00 - $200.00 with data plan, though i would only get it for my girl, i do not support apple products but i would buy one for her as she wants one, she prevails over my petty differences.

    To be honest I wouldn't pay a buck for it. I would rather give $500 away before spending it on apple.

    I'd probably pick one up if it was around $299

    Useless and worthless to me. Not even a penny. If I was given one I'd sell it or trash it.
