There is only one iPad. Sure, others say “just like an iPad,” or “better than,” but when you tried them out — let's hope you didn't buy the wannabe — you found out that these tablets didn't measure up.

The brands right next to Edge at half the price make shaving feel like mowing a lawn with rake. It's rough, uncomfortable and my face shows it. Same with Merrell mocs, which provide unparalleled comfort for my feet, or Fox River performance fiber socks, which cost four times more than other white socks but feel as if you're walking on feather pillows all day.
