2.1. Ubuntu 11.04

2.1.1. Pros: - Option to “try before you install” using the Live CD feature - Can easily install as a dual boot or even inside Windows using the Wubi installer

2.1.2. Cons: - Unless you’re luck to get a CD, you do have to mess about with .ISO files and burn a disc. If you’re happy doing that, it’s not really a problem. - None really … just don’t expect to run Windows software (even if you do resort to Wine

3.1.1. iPad2 Pros: The cheapest iPad, which has the minimum 16 gigabytes of storage, costs $500; this is well below the $1000 pricetag predicted by some The iPad has a digital compass, 3G-assisted GPS, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, Apple’s custom 1 GHz Apple A4 chip, and is multitouch-compatible. Cons: The battery is built in, which means you’re screwed if it conks out. This was one of the things that people most disliked about the MacBook Air The flipside of that: no Flash.
