The title in this thread in no way suggests this new iPad is a joke. What I was referring to is Apple's distinction that it is designed for the creative professional. Macs have traditionally been targeted more towards creatives than PCs were. When Apple first launched the MacBook Pro it was intended to be a more powerful option for creative professionals as are the current generation of Mac Pros. This is Apple's heritage. To produce a "Pro" product that isn't even capable of handling Raw files is imho a joke.And to say that they are a "joke" is just a silly, childish statement. They are nowhere close to being a "joke," they are in fact excellent devices that do relatively basic functions very, VERY well. I love PC's and will forever but a hell of a lot of people out there could get by with only owning an iPad pretty easily.
