Its just too expensive for what it is - an ipod touch
#4
Not really a hot deal when its selling at RRP I would think.
#5
"Custom design"? Isn't that the case for everything that is new?

Anyway, I don't get it. And it isn't a deal, that is called "the price".

COLD!
#6
Can someone tell me why I should get one of these over a iphone or a netbook?
#7
As with nearly everything from Apple. Overpriced and over hyped. COLD

Just another gimmic for the blind 'Apple' sheep to scream 'I want one!'

If you have spare money floating around I guess. :whistling:

If this was £300, it would be a very suitable price, period!

It's not comparable to the iphone.. The iphone is a phone.

It's not really comparable to a netbook.. it's a tablet. Tablet pcs will come out quite soon and they will be much cheaper than this, so if you like apple's amazing design and operating system then get this, otherwise wait for a cheaper tablet pc that will do almost the same thing just won't look as good!
#10
Don't forget 3% quidco. Every single apple product has been accused of being over priced and useless by the usual suspects. They still sell very well, it's upto each person as to if they think it's worth it.
#11
going to get very cold
#12
Buy a laptop.
#13
I would love to get one, and if the Dollar - Pound Sterling conversion was correct I probably would. It's a shame Apple add so much onto the Sterling prices! :(
#14
overpriced for a XL ipod touch

Total waste of money. I'd rather drink the money. Still a waste, but at least I'd have some happy memories & bruises from it.
#16
Voted cold.

This would be better if it had a lid - oh, that would be a laptop then!

Analyze what this is actually used for; you can do the same (and more) with an existing laptop or phone.
Apple are brilliant at encouraging you to pay a fortune for something that you don't really need.

Tablets have been around for a while, but not successful. Just because it's an Apple, it's suddenly a 'must have'.
#17
Spent a couple of hours playing with this in Apple shop in Orlando a few weeks back, a great piece of kit but far too expensive at this price. Far better to get an iTouch AND a notebook/cheap laptop for this sort of money.
#18
I love apple products, they are 'mazing. I can just imagine having one now...I want to be able to surf the web anywhere. Name one other device that can perform such a feat (laptops, netbooks, smartphones, non-smartphones don't count). It's priceless the flexibility this budget gadget can do for you. It will change the way we live our lives. I'm going to be front of the queue for this. And it's not just an ipod touch it can do waaay more things than an Ipod touch for example...you can use it to rule longer straight lines then an ipod touch or make bigger splashes by throwing it in the bath.

Honestly....I feel sorry for everyone compelled to part with money for this `old hat` technology been given the Californian spin! No in-fact I don't...please go and buy one and show it off to everyone you know, that way your friends will be able to distinguish that you are in fact an idiot.

Thank you, goodnight, much love.

agree.

also uk gov charges us 17.5% vat!!
#20
piece of overpriced crap
#21
Bought one in New York when they were launched. It is not a laptop. If you want a laptop, don't get one of these. This is a simple device which has a great big screeen. It's terrific for web browsing, reading books and handling photos etc. It is not a laptop. Because it is instant-on and has great battery life. you just tend to pick it up and use it, then put it down again.

Agree with someone before - this is a price not a deal.

Tablets have been around for years...
#23
Expensive for in the UK !! I picked one up from the US at a more reasonable price :) Get the Airvideo app and stream your movies to it. Airsharing HD and read any docs / PDFS from your PC etc. Add RealVNC and you can control your PC (looks crap on the Iphone / Itouch).

Once it's jailbroken with Spirit it opens up a myriad of possibilities :) I used mine to fly to the USA last week on an 8 hour flight watching videos constantly and still had 30% battery left.
#24
everyone wants one! i feel sorry for those who are selling them on eBay, they will have to lower their prices now! lol
#25
I find it hilarious how so many of you will **** off Apple to the death. I just don't understand why its so important to you people. If you want great usability and form factor the iPad is great, its too expensive but so are all Apple products. If you want something cheap and cheerful buy one of the android tablets out of Shenzhen for about £100.

BTW, this is not a deal at all its just the normal price as other have said.

:thumbsup:

It's funny how the supposedly unbiased tech-media always seems to lap it up as well....The iEmperor's New Clothes.
#27
So its like a netbook without a lid and does less for more money?

Hmmm lemme think about this for awhile..

COLD
#28
So which way would you set this down on your desk when not using it?
I would be a little paranoid bout scratching somthing this expensive:)
#29
I love Apple products. I thought this would be starting from £350...

But £429!!! You'd have to be mental to pay that for it.
#30
Wish people would stop clogging up Hotdeals with these non-deals. COLD.
#31
3 words - Fingers, greasy, screen.

Love my Macbook and want iphone but ipad is just plain dumb.

IMO

Yeah....and very cold...not a deal!
#32
If it was a good price I would give it heat whether I wanted one or not. This is just not a deal. Cold

I used mine to fly to the USA last week


Blimey if I'd known they did that I wouldn't have slagged it off!
#34
So looking at all the comments.... this is just an iPod touch with a much larger screen and a much higher price too.

That's pretty much the long and short of it.
#36
Meh, just preordered one just to see what its like for myself, the money isnt too important to me.
#37

That's pretty much the long and short of it.


So unless you have really bad eyesight then there is no real point in getting one.
#38
In all seriousness, can someone please tell me what this does that the ipod touch doesn't?
#39
Wasn't this supposed to be £350?
