    @cbae:They do have fans, but they come on very rarely. Combined with the use of SSD, the overall noise is less than what my Macbook Pro emits.

    @brian.shapiro: I think one of the best videos I have ever seen for a software product, was a baby given an iPad for the first time, that knew how to operate it immediately, with the correct gestures, clicking icons, moving screens and so on. I also gave my Auntie my iPad who continually moans that her work computer was upgraded to Office 2007 from 2003, and she went silent for the best part of an hour. I didn't have to explain anything to her. Even though Apple do like to choose, they have invariably been right in their choices.

    What's interesting about Apple's commercials is that they use the actual product in the commercials. Every other tablet or phone manufacturer has to put disclaimers on the screen like "simulation", or basically any paraphrase of "actual product is slow and laggy." I've seen Apple commercials and I use Apple products - WYSIWYG.

    Apple had to add the (almost invisible) line "Sequences shown are shortened" after the UK ad council busted their * some years ago.

    Apple's magical products pretty damn convincing, aren't they? Wink
