my new I(dea)Pad

I ordered an iPad from Apple couple days ago from the US store. But after a while I thought about all the drawbacks on it. No slot for SD cards, no USB connectors, no keyboard and so on (don’t count the external expensive tools..) So what to do ? I have my netb00k and remembered an article how to run Mac OS X Leopard on that. This would give me the functionality of a stable OS and a small and easy to carry device. I was searching around and found a lot of interesting stuff about that. Started on Saturday morning by following the instructions I picked. On Sunday afternoon it was done! yeah nice and fancy. Works fine, stable and fast. Ok ethernet doesn’t work (don’t need that because WLAN is working) and internal mic is unusable. The mic would be needful for skype I guess. May be there’ll be a solution for that later on. I’ld like to say many many thanks to all the guys doing the hard work of figuring out and provide all those information to everybody. Hm does somebody need an iPad from Apple ??? *smile*
