I love this ipad

Hubby has been tutoring these kids who want to take the pharmacy tech test. Anyway, it's finally wrapping up and they wanted to give him a thank you gift. Since we asked about iPads before (the boy's father has an electronic business and can get things wholesale), that's what they gave him.

Like an iPod for older eyes and MUCH easier to see.

Reading and responding to your post from my iPad. I too love the darn thing, don't go anywhere without it.

Re: I love this ipad

iLove the iPad. iThink it's an awesome piece of technology.

iOnly wish it had a larger capacity so I could fit all my music on it. But that is an extremely minor nitpick. All in all, an excellent device.

Plus it got me hooked on Angry Birds...

Re: I love this ipad

The iPad is a nifty and fun device. I see the appeal (kinda sorta) but I wouldn't pay for one. A 64GB iPad with 3G runs $849. At that price, you'd might as well buy a MacBook for $999 and get more utility.

I also don't have a need for another device. I already own a MacBook Pro 17", an iPhone and a new iPod nano.

Re: I love this ipad

Yes, but as a gift, no cost is incurred.

I don't try to convince or dissuade anyone from buying any Apple products, I only relay my experience and let you make your own decisions.

I travel a lot for work, 99% of the time I am making presentations using Keynote (powerpoint for Mac.) I cannot tell you the ease of using my iPad as oppose of taking my MacBook Pro. Plus being able to get full internet and e-mail, read a book and a few other things. The iPad has become indispensable to me. Is it a Laptop replacement? No, but Laptops were not Desktop replacements when they first came out. However now, years later you can own a laptop without needing a desktop. Will the iPad of the future be the same thing? Who knows.

I don't need that much utility.

^Me neither.

I have a 24" iMac on my desk. And I have a regular cell phone; I'm not interested in a smart phone, even the iPhone, because the screens are too small. My iPad is the perfect companion to those two.

Re: I love this ipad

Oh, I'm not trying to imply that the iPad doesn't fit the needs of some consumers. I'm sure it does. I just am not one of those people (at least, not right now).
