Why I can’t justify buying an iPad (for now)…


I recently purchased a Samsung 46″ LCD TV for $750. I really can’t, in my mind, justify purchasing an iPad for $829. I’m sorry, fanboys, but this is absolutely a gadget that I am going to have to go without for awhile.

I also can’t figure out my own use case for the iPad beyond sitting on a toilet or in bed and I already have a Kindle, an Android phone and an internet connected media center in the living room + my laptop. I am trying to minimize the number of things I have to carry and wondering how the iPad would fit into that schema.

Therefore I am going to forgo my iPad purchase and sit back and watch my big TV (for now).
