Comments: I purchased this in January and have logged over 1700 min. The over all mechanics of this machine are very nice. It's smooth, easy to use, and the power incline ramp is awesome. The only complaints I have are the heart rate grips are pointless and don't work and the computer system is horrible. First it has a horrible UI, although since using it I have been to a couple of gyms and I think maybe Apple has set my expectations a bit high. I've tried the built in programs and just gave up on them, There is no beginner setting. Also you can't customize your own programs. So I just keep my iPhone around with my intervals app running. The small shelf does seem to hold my iPad very nicely, and tonight I watched a tv show while working out. It doesn't hold my iPhone because the phone isn't wide enough to securely push the tab out so I use cardboard to make it set in easier. I assume the iPods would have the same problem.
