US Consumers Prefer a Netbook to an iPad, Says Survey

According to an NPD survey, it looks like the majority of US consumers between the ages of 18 and 24 would take a netbook over an iPad any day of the week. The majority is a slim one, ranking in at 51%. Furthermore, 44% of Apple product owners would take a MacBook over either.

Nevertheless, 27% of 18-34 year olds show interest in the purchase of an iPad, though 57% of the age group say the high price of the device is the reason they wouldn’t purchase one. Apple product owners were less put off, with only 43% saying the price was too high.

9% of all respondents of the survey were “extremely likely” or “very likely” to buy an iPad within the next six months.
