    If you can tell me how I will use it.

    I already have an iPhone and a MacBook Pro.

    If you can't figure out how you will use it then I'd say don't buy one. It's not a contest. No one cares if you buy one or not. I'm not being snarky, but it's like if I posted I'll buy a circular saw today if someone will tell me what I could do with it. Either you know why you need one, or you don't need one.

    Honestly, I'd say go to the store and play with it for 5-10 min. If it peaks your imagination, great. Otherwise you have $500-900 in your pocket for something else.

    Why do you need someone else to tell you what buy? Bizarre.

    It doesn't matter- why buy something you can think of how to use and let it sit around and collect dust?

    When i saw it it was immediate how it could fit into our daily lives by replacing the Touches. No brainer.

    We could use 2 more to stop the fighting over them though! How about you buy me a 3rd one? :D

    What's the difference if you want to throw money away?

    You buy it and don't have a use for it so it sits unused = waste of money

    you buy it for me, it is used daily for hours by a kid with special needs = waste of money for you, but at least the product is loved


    It was a JOKE..... but really, trying to justify why you should buy something is about the same to me as throwing money at strangers.

    I ordered a 32GB 3G iPad from the online Apple store last night, based on the positive, and negative, reviews I read here, and watching youtube video reviews. I decided to purchase the 3G because I planned on using it a lot away from my home wifi and I didn't want to jailbreak my iPhone to use as a hotspot. I hate synching everyday, so I didn't want the hassle of having to micro manage my media content, so I went with 32GB. I knew exactly what I needed, in an iPad, because virtually all of the questions I would have posted in a thread have been asked, and answered, several times over.

    The search button is your friend, mi amigo(a):D. After reading all that you can find on the iPad, hop over to BB, or an Apple store, and play with a unit. Only you can determine whether you want, or need, one.

    Money is always the issue. I'm hardly a pauper but damn if I don't take my BMW to the gas station that is a nickel cheaper. If you don't pay attention where and how you are spending your money you'll end up with none. Why would anyone spend money on a gadget they don't need? Would you go to a restaurant and buy yourself 10 entrees if you were not hungry? I mean it's not about the money, so why not?

    If you need someone to tell you why you need it, then you don't need it. I knew that it was the right thing for me, because I have spent a lot of time wishing that my iPhone was bigger. This is perfect for those times. But if you don't see a use for it, it isn't for you.

    Frankly, I don't understand the purpose of your thread. Do you want advice, gather some opinions?

    I've got the same combination (iPhone, MBP) and the iPad is in use for like 12 hours a day :D

    No. Please don't buy one. The thought of you owning one makes me cough up blood.
    Is that the attention/answer that you wanted and needed? ;)

    I thought you were going to go with, "it will take one out of the hands of someone more deserving". :D

    But coughing up blood is worse, can't have that! :p

    Buy one and then box it up and send it to me.
    Now get to it. Boom.
