The big ones:
- USA Today's Edward C. Baig declared the device a "winner." "Apple's freshly conceived slate-style computer promises to influence the media, mobile entertainment and publishing industries the way its close cousin the iPhone has affected wireless."
- The Wall Street Journal's Walter S. Mossberg said the iPad is "pretty close" to being a laptop killer. "After spending hours and hours with it, I believe this beautiful new touch-screen device from Apple has the potential to change portable computing profoundly."
- The New York Times's David Pogue wrote that the iPad is "basically a gigantic iPod Touch," but also said "the simple act of making the multitouch screen bigger changes the whole experience."
