    So far I'm pretty happy with my 64GB 3G.

    I still haven't decided which way to go with a 3G provider.
    Now that I can charge from my PCs via the Asus AI Charger, things are good.
    Screen is a little hard to read on, but good read does good work with PDFs which was my main reason for buying one.

    Very satisfied, the only thing with the ipad that I'd like to see in the next iteration would be stylus/handwriting recognition. The thing I'm unsatisfied with is more the content and how much gouging is going on with newspaper/magazine/textbook subscriptions.

    Newspapers and magazine prices are awful.

    Other than that, I'm really happy with the device itself. Just waiting on Simcity Deluxe and some other apps and it'll be awesome.

    I've been loving my 64GB 3G.

    I got the 64GB version because my 32GB iPhone has less than 4GB left on it and I figured the iPad would have larger apps and I would probably put more things on it.

    All in all, the 64GB is fine for now, but I can see me needing more as I start using it more and converting more tech books to PDF.

    To be completely satisfied I would probably need the ability to run an MS Office on it, since then I it would pretty much be able to replace my MBP. But other than that, it's been a great experience thus far.

    For me as well. But I easily managed to fill it with books, music and mostly with movies:D

    Ow and I'm really happy with it!

    By the responses - it appears you can only be 65.8% satisfied with a 16. Just think if you had gone with a 32 you could have gotten into the high 70's.

    The only experience I have had with a 16 is in the apple store and I can tell you that I felt at least 25% less satisfied but YMMV.

    Completely? No.

    But most of the annoyances are software-related that will be addressed in 4.0.

    Hi all. This is my first post here. I was in the fence about the iPad and finally got one last weekend. It is awesome. I am completely satisfied and obsessed with this thing. I was debating on 32 vs 64 but thought the extra $ was worth it for double the space. I have like 150 GB's of music and was able to put everything I really wanted on here, have three movies, a bunch of books,14 hours of a tv show and 3,000 photos and I still have 22 gigs left. So glad I went with 64. I always think it's worth it to spend the extra for more space Think 3G is worthless. I had to dump my iPhone last year for a BlackBerry on Verizon because AT&T's service sucks so bad in San Francisco. I love this thing.

    I love mine, with a few standard annoyances.

    I am helping to care for my grandmother about 100 miles from home. I decided to travel light and left the MBP at home. Just hook my 32 GB 3G iPad and my Verizon MiFi.

    It's perfect for **** I brought it to do. Surfing, email, and keeping up with RSS feeds is great. Facebook works nicely as well.

    Flash isn't really an issue for me, but last night I went to Stub Hub to see about Stanley Cup tickets - go Hawks! - and their site REQUIRES Flash. No non-Flash alternative. So when I get my tickets elsewhere, I will email them and tell them why I went elsewhere. Tix are cheaper somewhere else anyway, but I won't tell them that.

    Yes

    I love it. It's just about replaced my MBA and is in almost constant use.

    I am happy without the limitations and have found apps to suit all my needs from GTD, Project Management, written output and more entertainment than a grown man needs

    If I could just leave Angry Birds alone I could actually get some work done

    Overall I am really happy with my 32GB 3G. The biggest annoyance is really that the apps are so expensive in comparison to the iPhone versions of the same apps. Angry birds is a good example of this. The iPhone version is £0.59 and the iPad version is £2.99 and there is no difference apart from it makes use of e whole screen. No different levels, it's just a bit bigger.

    Yes. It has replaced my MacBook pro and iPod touch. I was hoping it would replace my kindle, but it hasn't. I still prefer e ink for long reading.

    And there's a hell of a lot less levels. In my opinion this is one of the worst Apps for the iPad. I bought it about a month ago, and at the time I asked for a refund, but never received a reply.

    As for the iPad itself, nope, no regrets here! I love this thing and everything about it. :)

    After a whole week, I'm very happy with my 16gb 3G.

    It's even better than I had expected.

    I already hit the 19% warning from AT&T.
    And that's while using wifi at home.

    It really is "the next big thing".

    Have Fun,
    Keri

    Even 1 month later I can say this is something I'm 110% happy with.
    Almost every time I use it I have a moment where I just stop and spin the iPad around looking at the front, back, sides, bottom, top.. I look the whole thing over and I think about what an amazing piece of technology it is.
    The things it does and the way it does them just amazes me on a daily basis. I think Steve Jobs said "this is how the Internet was meant to be experienced" and you know what, I get that same feeling every time I use it.
    I know a lot of people hate on the "magical" term when apple throws it out there but I honestly think that's a great way to describe it. I had no intention to buy an iPad. I was in WorstBuy with the intention to just "check it out". I'll never forget the first time I saw one in person and picked it up, smile from ear to ear! The second I touched the thing it was over, I had to have one. Now to me, something "magical" did happen when I first touched it! It took control of me!:)
    Friends of mine who had no intention to own an iPad, same thing happened after they saw/touched mine. They had to have

    We bought it knowing it is a 1st gen, so my expectations we not great. I think it should be cheaper in its current state, but I expect future versions to be.

    A camera would be nice not for using it as a camera as much as for using it for apps that take advantage of the camera's technology. The continuous wi-fi dropping must be fixed though.

    I am satisfied with the portability. Right now I'm on my terrace, watching tourists and boats with the iPad in my lap. Life is good :)

    My favorite thing to do is surf the web or read a book/vook on it while listening to music with wireless headphones. If you haven't done it, try it.

    I was about 90% satisfied with my 16gb wifi model, mostly because of my mistake not getting the 3G version. This was easily fixed by putting mywi on my iPhone though.

    Same thing here. The screen is brilliant and it was impressive to see what it could do better than the iPhone. People say that it is just a big iPhone, but I think the iPhone is an iPad nano.

    I am more than satisfied with mine! I bought it merely to read books on, however I find myself doing TONS of stuff on it now...it's kind of my personal companion :)
