Top 10 Reasons Not To Buy An iPad

Posted on 07 August 2010

The world of technology is growing at a fast pace today. It has new inventions and creations every single day. This makes the technology market very competitive and for this purpose companies should be very careful when making their products. They should make sure to satisfy all kinds of consumers with their products. If in such a place, a company launches a product or tool that is only serving a single purpose, then they should know that it is not going to be beneficial in the short or long term.
Such is the case with Apple’s new iPad which has had a great launch with a very attractive appearance but it is not something worth spending your money on. Below are listed top ten reasons not to buy an iPad.

1) RESTRICTED FEATURES
The iPad has very restricted features as it mainly supports applications of the iPhone. It can be used for entertainment purposes like playing iTunes, reading an eBook, watching videos on you tube or for checking your email account. So if you are looking for something that gives you more than just entertainment then iPad is not the right choice for you.
2) OS X AND INTEL OR INTEL PROCESSORS ARE NOT SUPPORTED
One of the biggest flaw that the Apple iPad has is that it does not operate these two very important processors which are widely used by everyone. This again keeps it as a not so useful buy.
3) LESS BATTERY BACKUP
The Apple iPad has a battery backup of up to 10 hours but comparatively it is less than the other products available in the market.
4) WEAK BODY
It has no rubber plugs or sheets at it’s backsides and this makes it unreliable and easily damaged when kept on a flat screen. Hence, it’s operation becomes difficult and utility slow.
5) RESTRICTED TO ONLY ONE VIDEO PLAYER
The Apple iPad supports only one video player that is Youtube when there are other players available that are used by many people.
6) NO CAMERA
This product even if considered for entertainment purposes fails miserably as it does not have a camera. Having a camera is one essential tool for any entertainment product which leads to a disappointment in the Apple iPad.
7) WASTEFUL FOR LAPTOP, PALMTOPS OR SMART PHONE USERS
Those who have a laptop, a palmtop or a smart phone have all the iPad applications and features installed in their phones and hence for them buying an iPad is a sheer waste of money.
SPACE CONSUMING
It might look very small in size but to function it in full operation you have to attach additional accessories to it. Hence it increases you expenditure and also demands more space.
9) NO ADDITIONAL FUNCTIONS
Users of phones like Nokia N series have all the functions of the iPad in their phones. The iPad does not have additional features and it is restricted to only a certain number of features which can be supported by many other much more useful tools.
10) LIMITED SCREEN SPACE
It has a screen space of around 1028 pixels by 768 pixels in resolution. This does not making working or surfing on the internet enjoyable for the user.
These are the points that will be helpful for you to know that spending your money on an iPad is not worth the cost.

    Your list is true, but what about the positives:

    -Great source of apps that are both useful and functional
    -3G enabled device for web access almost any where without Wi/Fi

    I think people need to look at the IPad as a device to use apps on rather then a device in itself that should do something for them… On it’s own you’re right it’s crap, but with the right apps for your job/hobby/passion it’s a great tool.

    Well as like with every other device there’s both pros and cons, but it seems like the pros of the iPad are way far behind than its cons!
