Apple's revolutionary iPad is the most in-demand piece of kit for 2010. Measuring 7.5 x 9.6 x 0.5 inches, and weighing in at 1.5lbs, this portable powerhouse packs some seriously impressive technology into its tiny innards.

With a 9.7-inch high-res LED-backlit IPS display, a super-responsive multi-touch screen, up to 10 hours battery life and a frighteningly powerful Apple-designed chip, this stylish little beast is as advanced as they come.

Apple promise the iPad will be "the best way to experience the web, email, photos and video", offering multiple features and 140,000aps from launch. So, what delights can you expect from the iPad?

The iPad's high-res display delivers crisp and vibrant picture at an amazing 1024 x 768 resolution. Perfect for watching videos, movies or photos. What's more, you can view your stuff in landscape or portrait - the choice is yours.

This mighty handheld marvel is powered by a custom-designed Apple A4 chip. Powerful yet power efficient, the iPad promises to exceed anything you've ever seen from a touch-based device, and it will keep on going for up to 10 hours at a time.

Multi-Touch Screen:

The first thing you notice isn't the impressive display, as soon as you see it you are compelled to touch it and the responsiveness is incredible. It responds with precision to every finger flick and you can glide between the screens with ease. I was dubious about using the onscreen keyboard but it holds up well. The keyboard is easy to see and (perhaps more importantly) easy to type on. Turning the iPad re-alligns the screen so you can view things in landscape or portrait. If you've used an iPod Touch or an iPhone then you'll be familiar with the two fingered zooming in and out, this is great when viewing photographs or when web-browsing.

Web-browsing should be a disappointment, the lack of Flash support is infamous and cited as the main iPad flaw. I was ready to criticise it but I have to admit that I was impressed and found web browsing to be a very enjoyable experience. Like most other Apple Mac products it feels intuitive and without reading a manual or receiving a demo you already instinctively know how to use it - and for an item of high-technology that's a rare a pleasant thing.

This device is best used along with a standard laptop or desktop Mac/PC to synchronise with iTunes and so that you have a main machine for file storage, but if you find yourself baffled by technology and struggle with a laptop then this could be the perfect solution if all you want to do is a bit of web browsing. My dad has a cheap laptop which takes an age to boot up, takes a further age to get on the internet, pops up many confusing messages about conflicting software, and crashes - often. All my dads needs his laptop for is web access but the poor experience it provides means that he has since given up - for him the iPad would be perfect.

There is a standard set of apps which come installed on the device, you can't remove them and to be honest you wouldn't want to. They have been incredibly well developed and have a strong pedigree now as they have lived on other portable Apple products for the last few years. The range of apps available for the iPad is nothing short of fantastic, and every time you check the AppStore there's more! There are thousands of free apps, and plenty which cost only few pence. Once you've searched for Apps and added them to your iPad you have a fully customised device tailored to your own tastes and requirements. Whether you want utilities or games you cannot fail to find things you like. To be honest, the iPad is a worthwhile gadget purely on the basis of the AppStore alone!

Apple have created a gadget which isn't quite a laptop and is more than a tablet PC - it's a new class of gadget which can easily fit in with your lifestyle and become a device you find yourself using every day. You can read books on it (the iBook app is a great virtual bookcase), surf the web, or even watch TV (via the BBC iPlayer!).

In a nutshell: If you're buying this as a laptop replacement then you may be a bit disappointed if you're wanting to do a heavy amount of word-processing, spreadsheets, photo manipulation - the sort of thing you can only really do well on a `proper' computer. But for many this is the perfect solution, a beautiful looking item which is easy to use and can do far more things than it can't do. If I were reviewing this as a tablet PC then I'd give it 4 stars, but I'm reviewing this as an iPad - a new sort of device which will establish itself as the first thing you reach for if you had to flee the house.
