Apple I-Pad (Review & Product Test)

As I was one of the lucky ones that could catch a new I-Pad I wrote a review about this praised product. Whether the I-Pad could reach those high expectations or not can be found in this test:

Price: I decided to buy the 16GB I-Pad for $499. You could also choose 32GB and 64GB.

Technical Specifications:


9.7-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen Multi-Touch display with IPS technology


16GB, 32GB, or 64GB flash drive


10 hours of surfing the web, watching videos



I really like the touch screen. It´s ultra sensitive, I think even a little bit better than on the I-Phone. I really appreciate the screen!
In the product  description it announces that the battery of the I-Pad could last 10 hours of surfing in the internet or watching videos. I reached with mine exactly 9 hours and 10 minutes, watching Lord of the Rings.

The I-Pad was basically constructed as a book-reader, so I downloaded an eBook from the Apple Store, and honestly: I´m very surprised. It really feels like having a book right in front of you. You can scroll through the different pages on your eBook and it really looks even better than in reality.


Hello Apple? Where is the DVD/BLU-Ray drive?  As I´m a movie lover I have a lot of DVD´s collected over the years, but I can´t watch them on my I-Pad. That´s sad for me, but a great money-making-idea from Apple! Because every time I´d like to watch a movie I would have to go to the Apple Movie Store and buy the DVD. I think it´s normal that I´m not really fond of the idea of buying a DVD twice just to watch it also on my I-Pad.


If you have about $500-700 you should get this product. It could replace the good old fashioned book sometime. But if you would like to use the I-Pad for movies (for example for your kids during drives on the highway) you should rather think twice before buying this product. There are a lot of (cheaper) alternatives that allow you to watch your favorite movies without having to buy them twice.

Hi Ali!

I can really reccomend the I-Pad, if you are searching for an excellent eBook reader! But if you would like to watch your own dvd´s on it you should rather buy a laptop or something similar! It all depends on your own needs!
