If you are one of the few who isn't convinced Apple's iPad is worth $600, head over to the New York Auto Show this week and get one for free.

Well, not exactly free.

Hyundai is offering a free iPad to anyone willing to lay a sizable down payment on its 2011 Hyundai Equus -- its $55,000 luxury sedan. Yes, the same automaker known for practicality  and a sub-$10,000 new car.

But what do all those greenbacks get you from the Korean automaker?
