    No.

    A The New iPad should never be used for that purpose.

    If you bought an iPad just to browse and leave comments on a forum you either have so much money that you don't know what to do with it or you need help, or maybe both.

    That's a silly statement. I bought an iPad mainly for web browsing and email and I certainly DO NOT "have so much money I don't know what to do with it." Some people go to bars and spend $30 on beers & drinking at least once a week and could buy 2 iPads in a year with the money they spend. Some people spend $120/week on cigarettes. Who are you to judge how people spend their money? I place your age at around 15.

    It's less than 2 packs a day around here. ;)

    I use my iPad (currently the original one) to do the following:

    - surf the net (both at home and on the train to work)
    - email
    - control my Apple TV
    - control iTunes for Air Play
    - play games
    - look at photos
    - read books
    - track to dos
    - take notes at work

    I get quite a bit of use out of it. :)

    +1 while the sole use of my iPad isn't to browse and post on MacRumors, it is a big part of it. I love this place, I learn so much about not only Apple devices but technology in general.

    Who are you to place someone's age? I agree with everything else you said until that point. It always irked me when people pulled that kind of crap, especially when I was younger. There's no age limit for stupid statements. Not trying to start something with you, but just throwing that out there.

    I also use Tapatalk. I actually like it better than browsing the forums on my computer.

    I don't think it's worth spending the $4.99 if you can just as easily browse the forums on the full site. If it was the iPhone/iPod Touch we were talking about, it might be another story. But even then I used to just browse normally.

    Just my 2 cents of course.

    I am on my pad typing this right now. This has become my laptop replacement for when I am on campus. For me it is not the issue of what it does, well a big part is. But it is portable that is the big factor, you can take it anywhere without taking up much space.

    I think you misunderstood what I said. It's ok if you got your iPad just for browsing the internet and do email. But the OP made it seem like he only got an iPad to browse Macrumors. I don't know if the OP was trying to be silly or something, it just seemed ridiculous to me.

    Yeah tapatalk is great. Even better for the iPhone since browsing is limited.

    2 packs a day, high but certainly not unusual. Which is why I stopped over 45 years ago, the day my wife became pregnant with our first child. Back then it was 24cents a pack. Now in some places in NYC it's over $12 a pack, average $11. 2 pack a day habit is not uncommon. Do the math. Do you watch Madmen?

    Well "dude," if you were born in 1946 as I was and your friends started smoking back in the 1950's you might know a few. ;) Especially the war vets. That's Vietnam, not the Civil War.

    Edit: I see you're from Canada so you wouldn't know any Vietnam war vets.

    Back in 1950 ... 2 pack a day habits were common ... however in 2012 they are not ... amongst today's smokers ... 2 pack habits are rare ... I was born in 1964 and have known many War Vets ... my Family lives on both sides of the border

    I pretty much use it to post on here, or as a drink coaster if I'm not using it to browse Macrumors. So far, feeling pretty good about the value I got for $700. :D

    You people using the The New iPad to surf the web are pissing me off.

    Use it the right way or don't use it at all.
