I hope the iPad speakers are really as good as they say. Because while I love my Airbook, the speakers (apparently located under the keyboard) are barely adequate. They just don't go as loud as I'd like, even when just watching videos. And of course they are far from hi-fi. If the iPad is to be really useful as a video device without using headphones, the speakers have to be two notches better than that.
It is just too clumsy to have to take headphones on and off every time you put down the device. After all, the great thing about the iPad is that you can pick it up, put it down, and twist it all around, anywhere and anywhen.
