We all know someone who has there own opinions on branded products. They either refuse to use a particular brand or are afraid to stray away from another. The most common opinion I hear are the people who say “Is that an apple product, get it away from me!”. These people I find are secretly jealous of apple products, but are too ashamed to admit it.

I was lucky enough to try out the new apple iPad this week and it is in all words "awesome". If you have ever owned or used an iTouch, then you will notice is pretty much the same thing but on a larger scale. 

The iPad looks and feels classy and is packed with features suited to today’s modern day home. With storage capacity of 16G, 32G or 64G you have enough space to store your personal music, photos and movies as well as applications available from the app store. Its ideal for watching movies on the train, on a plane or in a car. You can use the internet via its Safari web browser with the option of a keyboard docking station, making typing easier. There are two types of iPad;- one with Wifi and the other with wifi and 3G, making the iPad ready to use on the go.

Only the Wifi versions are out in America at the moment with models coming to the UK in late May. Prices are expected to start around £500 for the entry model (16G with Wifi), making the iPad a pricey accessory to your home. It will appeal to the Apple users already as all Apple products do, but may also turn a few apple haters into lovers. Rival companies are now producing their own Windows 7 Android-powered versions which will all be released later in the year.

Do I like the iPad? YES. 

Will other people like it? YES. 

Will the people secretly jealous of Apple products like it, YES...

...but they will tell you NO!
