How Big Is The iPad, Really?

Illustration for article titled How Big Is The iPad, Really?

Giant graphics are nice and all, but now that I've got the real thing in my hands, I thought I'd see how the iPad measures up to other electronic and game-related devices laying about my home.


My Toshiba laptop dominates the scene, but I knew it would; I carry it with me to press events and conventions as penance for some long-forgotten sin.The maroon thing on the right is a Gateway netbook, which I purchased to replace the Toshiba as a traveling companion, but have yet to work up the nerve. You should be able to figure out the rest.

The iPad turned out to be slightly smaller than I imagined it, right on par with my netbook, which means I might have to borrow its sleeve until my iPad case arrives.

So it costs more than a standard netbook, is the size of one and has none of the useful features.

Yay Apple.
