My old laptop just croaked which I only used for web surfing and slingbox watching. I think I can replace it with an iPad. However, funds are tight so I'd like to get a 16gb wifi, maybe even a refurb. I also have a 9" Asus netbook and a desktop. The screen on the netbook is lacking though. A little too small and poor viewing angle. I like the ipad because the screen looks great to me, no wait time to boot and loong battery life. I plan to use the ipad for web surfing, netflix, slingbox and a few apps/games while on the couch and around the house. If I need to take it outside, I'll use Mywi on my iphone. So the question for you is: Do you regret going with only 16gb? Why? Thanks! PS: Should I consider any other devices? Price range has to be $500 or less.
