    This is my review of the 64GB Wifi iPad after owning it for a month.

    Display
    The iPad has a clear,sharp screen.YouTube videos,TV shows,and movies look great on the screen.Watching videos on it is comfortable,fun,and way better than a laptop.YouTube videos look clearer on the iPad,instead of a laptop or iPhone.Also,with ABC Player,I can watch my favorite shows on the iPad,whenever and wherever I want.

    Operating System
    The OS on the iPad is easy and fun.If you already own an iPhone or iPod Touch,you would already know how to use it.When Apple creates a new device,the hardware and software when put together create a perfect product.
    The iPad is so easy to use that any person with no computer experiences would be able to use it.

    Web Browsing
    When Steve Jobs said that the iPad can surf the web better than a laptop or smartphone,he wasn't kidding.The iPad is lighter than a laptop and doesn't overheat.The 9.7 inch screen on the iPad is perfect,not too small and not too big.Reading news on it is definitely better than an iPhone.The iPad not supporting Flash is not a dealbreaker for me,since Hulu is going to release their own application and I don't imagine myself playing Flash games on it.Finally,the iPad can turn on instantly.I could just press the wake button and then the iPad's screen turns on and I can browse immediately.

    Battery Life
    The battery life on the iPad is amazing.It can last for days without being needed to be charged.The battery life can last four or five more times than my iPhone 3GS.

    App Store
    With over 225,000 apps in the App Store and over 10,000 and counting iPad-specific apps,I am 100% sure that anyone will find something they like in the App Store.Games on the iPad is very fun.I love playing RealRacing HD and Labyrinth 2 HD wherever I go.When I am at a restaurant,a relative's house,a grocery store,or wherever I am I would always have my iPad with me to play a game,get directions,read comic books,draw,or see which movies are playing.

    Photos
    Viewing and sharing photos have never been this easy.Photos look sharp and clear.I absolutely love the slideshow feature.I like the way we can interact with the photos.Pinch to open an album,pinch to zoom in and out,etc.

    Mail
    Mail on iPad is sleek and simple.After owning the iPad,I stopped using my laptop for e-mail.Deleting and moving e-mails is easy,fun,and fast.Composing e-mails on the iPad is simple and attaching files to it isn't complicated at all.

    iBooks
    Reading books on the iPad is great.There are many free books in the iBooks Store.Text on the iPad looks great.The built-in dictionary is a very helpful feature to those who don't have a large selection of vocabulary like me.Pictures in iBooks are vivid.In the Winnie the Pooh book,pictures are bright and clear.Being able to flip through pages like a real book is a nice addition.

    Typing
    I typed this review on my iPad.Nuff said.

    Bottomline
    The iPad is a great web browsing and digital book reading device.Mail is easy on the iPad.The iPad has a vast selection of apps from the expanding App Store.Battery life is great and can last for days.The iPad is a device that everyone should own.

    I've had my iPad since April 3, and I still love reading new iPad reviews! Great job.

    I really love my iPad. I can't remember web browsing without it. (not without wincing, at least)

    Are you using Safari for web browsing or did you purchase something else? The way it handles multiple pages drives most crazy as they prefer tabs like in firefox.

    i hate the ipad, but im going to purchase a 16gb when its back in stock. Its more usefull jailbrken and with flash coming (via jbreak) it will rock and be the portable computer i always wanted. (i had a 64gb 3g and returned it after a week, 3g too expensive for me and not worth the cost at that price point, however 500 with 3g over iphone will be just fine)

    I've had the iPad for only a week and a half and only needed to charge it once. I've already developed a bad habit of touch my monitor at work trying to zoom or select icons lol.
