The past few days I have been having difficulty sleeping from all the excitement. I have the funds in my bank account and my debit card is ready! I am going to my local mall on Saturday and picking the baby up and walking out of the Apple Store with a huge grin on my face!

I can't wait to sync my movies, music, and tv shows! I can't wait to surf Facebook and Twitter while kickin back on my bed! I can't wait to use my fingers to share photos with my family and peeps and also to surf the net and check out the latest news.

I'm sorry I know this is kind of a useless thread but I know there are alot of you guys who are just as excited as I am, if not more! WOOOOOOO HOOOOOO! This is gonna be huge you guys, get ready for a monumental moment in technology history to take place in just 7 days!

I definitely feel your excitement. I can't wait for the device. It's going to revolutionize the way we consume media. The iPhone was cool but the screen just didn't cut it. Laptops are just too bulky and cumbersome to kick back in the chair and flip through a magazine. The iPad on the other hand, is going to be awesome. Manipulating media with your fingers, flipping through magazines, spinning pictures, painting, playing games, the experience is just so much more organic than using a keyboard.

I can't stop reading a lot of these pointless threads :)

Actually I've completely put down my feelings for the iPad. If I get excited, I WONT will be able to stand waiting the rest of the 7 days.

I'm just as hyped as you, OP. My days consist of coming here to read what everyone has to say. Then visiting Engadget and Gizmodo to see if they have any news on the iPad. I even have a countdown clock on my PC counting down to April 3rd at 10am EST because that's when I am hoping mine will be delivered. I've been picking up iTunes cards at a good price from people on Craigslist. I'm trying to find some good movies I haven't seen to buy with it. So far I bought Star Trek (HD). I am debating between Up, and Hurt Locker. The wait is driving me nuts! It sucks its still 1 week away but on the bright side I only started getting super hyped on the day they started taking pre orders so the wait hasn't been too bad.

we need a big live iPad chatroom!

StBDawg
Mar 26, 2010, 08:26 PM
Yes, we do, I'd rather talk live with people about the iPad rather than constantly checking the forum to see if anyone replied and be disappointed when someone bashed me with a dumb comment.

maybe macrumors can create a CHAT on the front page regarding it, if MODS are watching. it sure would be nice :)

That sounds like a really good idea. I could sit outside with my Barnes & Noble Nook to read while I wait.

I've been doing all that he said he was gonna do on my laptop. I guess I'm glad so many are so excited about the ipad, but the bottom line is that they will now get to surf the web, just like they have been doing all along.

Yeah it's a cool device, but by the end of the year when there are 30 different kinds of "IPAD like" devices out there, I don't think it will be a big deal.
I ordered an ipad for my son, but for myself , I am waiting for the HP slate to come out. I'd like the functiuonality of a real PC and not just a web surfing device.

I wanted to stay till the HP Slate came out as well, but couldn't hold out. I really, really, really hope they don't slap Win 7 onto the device and give it to us. They should custom tailor the UI for the tablet. That's when I'll buy it.
