    Hi Guys,

    After much debate, I have taken the financial plunge and just now placed an order for the 32GB Ipad Wifi + 3G. I have had an iphone since launch day. My main debate on ordering it was whether or not to get the 3G or wifi only version. In the end I made the right choice for my life style!

    Congrats. I did the same today. I figured it would be torture either waiting for lucky owners to check in or try and find one to play with within 100 miles of me. 64gb wifi for me. :cool:

    That was the conclusion I came out with, I hope it's the right one. But everyone has their own reasons.

    I didn't say "what's the point of an iPhone and iPad". I guess people will waste their money however they can.

    Talking on your iPhone while using your 3G iPad to look something up on the internet. :rolleyes:

    I too have an iPhone 3GS and have ordered an iPad 32G WiFi + 3G. I have different uses for them.

    Apparently Steve J. thought that a lot of people who own iPhones would purchase iPads since he said in the announcement that because of the iPhone owners they have a few million people who already know how to use the iPad.

    Where I work the head of the IT department who also owns an iPhone is getting an iPad.

    Also congratulations Bob, you've made a wise choice.

    I changed my mind enough times that my Credit Card company called me citing "Fraud" on my account. Apparently 4-5 Pre-Auth's in a few days was suspicious. :rolleyes: I got a bigger than expected Paycheck though, so I am set this time around. ;)

    Thanks!

    I actually am the head of the IT Department where I work. I have been a windows system admin for the last 10 years. I find lately that at the end of the day, I just want something that works. I don't want to have to come home and fix my own computers just to get on the internet. I honestly don't see the need to tweak my home systems anymore.

    Seeing as it's not April yet, then I must be ahead of the curve in early adoption! ;)


    On a more serious note. I own an iPhone and an iMac, the only laptop I have is my work laptop as mine was stolen from my car 5 months ago. I figure the iPad will complement my iMac very well.

    Anyone who had to think about buying one instead of just ordering it has their life priorities wrong. :)

    Congrats!

    Considering the iPad's battery is better than my iPhone's, I rather use the iPad 3G to browse the web and do email instead of my iPhone 3GS.
