iPad Cons

You cannot multitask. You can only do one task at a time. If you want to surf the web and type into a document, you can’t. Listen to music while you surf the web? Nope. You need to exit one and then open the other.

-No flash support. Enjoy the web without much of its content!

-No camera. A $30 Tracfone has a camera and an expensive Apple product doesn't? Wow.

-It doesn’t have an SD card slot. You want expand it from the limited capacity options that Apple offers? You can't. Want to easily load all your photos and music on it? You can't.

-No USB ports. You need to buy a special dongle and attach it to the iPad if you want to use any peripherals. Ah yes, that’s convenient and cost-effective. Peripheral support will also be very limited by its operating system.
