I absolutely adore this thing. I got an iPad 1 on eBay used for 490. 64 gb with a case and extra charger. It is really sweet. I thought tablets seemed like a gimmick but I love sitting on my couch. Reading comics and consuming media is so much more enjoyable. I have a few more weeks until the warranty ends on this thing. Should I purchase AppleCare, or just wing it? Going through email is such a different experience. I love the layout. So far i am impressed.
