I didn't want an IPad until I saw the FABULOUS new Autodesk Sketchbook Pro App for it.
Only 8 dollars for the app and it becomes a fully functional tablet art program. It's AMAZING. I found myself literally drooling as I watched this video.
I don't get gadget lust easily and had scoffed at the IPad when it was introduced. Who wanted an over sized IPod that couldn't handle parallel applications? The instant I saw this video, every shred of hesitation vanished as I realized what was coming. The IPad is going to develop in the next few years into the ultimate on the go tool for graphic artists, architects and designers. Rather than buy a tablet PC for almost 2000 dollars and sink another several hundred into design software, I can get the highest memory version of the Ipad for under 900 and pay next to nothing for design apps as they are released.
I am now officially bowled over by Apple and can't wait to see what is coming next.
