Maybe I'm the minority here, but I just couldn't pull the trigger on the device quite yet. I think its a great device but as I seriously thought of my needs and uses, the iPad failed to address them. surfing at home - I can do that on my iPhone or Laptop. Watching a movie - I have a TV for that. Useful device for traveling, absolutely but I have little to no travel plans in the immediate future. The 800 dollars I'd end up spending can be better used to buy a Mac mini for my children. Here's the rub, how many people will go through similar though processes and pass on the iPad at least initially. May be I'll change my mind in the near future, especially when I go and play with one at the apple store (once they arrive at the apple store) I'm having a hard time spending 800 dollars on a device that will allow me to read a book or watch a movie. Now granted, I could opt for the wifi one and save lots of $$ but the logic remains. Plus the eBooks seem to be more expensive then the real thing, at least in what I've seen so far.
