This week, a new friend had the HP Touchpad with him. I asked him if it was the iPad and he said that it was the tablet that HP had discontinued. He snapped one up for under $200. I was impressed. The size was perfect, it was light but sturdy, he could zoom in and out, and wi-fi was fast. I admit a strong liking for my MacBook laptop and iPod Touch. Both are great products and I enjoy using them. I look forward to some day purchasing an iPad 2. I keep up on news at the Macworld website. Having said all that, I wonder if I could do better with some of these cheaper and just as well non-Apple products. Seeing the HP Touchpad gave me pause as I thought of what this friend had that he had purchased for so little. I guess we all have hobbies and special interests that cost us money. We pay premiums in areas that others would never consider. I think that is how it is for me in my Macintosh world. I pay a little more but I like the experience of exclusivity, elegance, and integration.
