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 travelling 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.

    make it go away

    For some reason I thought they were bigger. Probably because I haven't paid much attention to it and the thought of it being that small just seems stupid.

    Cross Edge is a terrible game.

      Have you played it Lance?
      I was almost tempted into getting it the other day then some cold chill took over and I decided not to.
      Would love to hear some impressions/pro and cons if you wouldn't mind :)

    Its not that much bigger than a DVD case... i thought it would be bigger than that

    its as big as a netbook seems even more pointless now
