wi-fi? : YES
sync to my XP 2002 outlook? YES : GUIDE
network to ------------ 98SE,win2000,XP home,XP pro,vista,Windows 7? NO - Unless you remote into a Windows Computer using the iPad : GUIDE
ability to play 175GIGS of MP3's? NO - Unless you are SHARING the music on your home network through iTunes (64GB max for the iPad)

Remember, the iPad is NOT a "computer". There is no start menu (or even a mac start menu), its basically a gigantic iPod touch. Great for web browsing and apps from the apple app store, and playing music and movies.

Its not the iPad thats bad, its the over hyped hype surrounding it thats disgusting. As Kirsch said, "... its basically a gigantic iPod touch ..."

I am looking at getting an iPad for my disabled daughter. There is a University in America somewhere that has written an app for the iPad to enable communication with disabled people. I'm just waiting to see if the Australian Government use their brains and take advantage of the technology, as it has proven to be worth it's weight in gold {so to speak} in trials thus far.

It's an Apple product. That automatically makes it both overpriced and proprietary.

It's good at what it does. It's good looking. It's popular. It's a big toy. Can it have it's uses, sure. Do people want them, you bet. If you have the extra cash, not a problem I've ever had.
