    You can try Skyfire browser... I haven't had any need for it, but others have used it

    Or you can use Logmein and run your browser from your desktop

    What do you need to use flash for? I mean is it videos or something else? If it's something other than videos I think you may be out of luck.

    I bought puffin so I could control a cisco wireless controller better. But it didn't work because it wasn't a public ally available site. If you absolutely need flash the iPad might not be the best choice.

    Mostly video,
    This is not for me, someone at work needs for videos mostly, but some games on line.

    I wish I had a job where I could borrow an iPad and use it to watch videos and play games.

    If the games are a must, then the iPad isn't for you. I would probably recommend the touchpad being released by hp later this year. It's os is much better than android, it's on par if not a notch better than iOS, and is fully flash compatible. However you will lose out on all the apps.

    Get Splashtop and remote into your PC...then use your web browser from there for all the flash you could need.

    You make it sound like it's the guy's job to watch videos and play games. Is it impossible to think that it's just the guy's coworker who wants Flash?

    You absolutely should not get an iPad.

    ISwifter works but the experience is not very smooth.

    The other option is to use splash top desktop app to use flash on your desktop machine.

    Both of the above options provide mediocre experience.

    If you can't do without flash, iPad is not a good choice for you.
