My first impression of the new iPad was "eh it's not worth an upgrade and another $829+tax (no tax if I buy from base exchange as a active duty service member). I use my iPad for work and just last week, my area got Verizon 4G LTE! I noticed it on my galaxy nexus phone. Anyway, I use it at work for patient care in primary care. The iPad is such a great tool. In addition, the screen is gorgeous compared the iPad 2. I can actually notice it when I compare the two. I tried ordering this thing from exchange online store, going to Bx, Verizon, best buy in Warner Robins, GA area and nobody had the white verizon 4G 64GB. Finally went to Target today after looking for about a month (besides driving all the way to Atlanta to attempt in getting one), I got one. White Verizon 4G 64GB. I called verizon to transfer my miff hotspot plan to the iPad. Now I have connectivity of verizon all in one device! Hooray. My iPad 2 was with ATT and while it was good, connection was not as great as verizon in many places i went to including my home town in Hawaii. I felt guilty spending $860 (with tax) but then I'd thought, I don't spend big and always try to live below my means. With that, I was able to spend on something good for myself. Now...I still gotta travel to Atlanta to purchase apple care +... Takes me 1.5 hours and coming from Hawaii, I usually don't drive to another city for more than 30 minutes (no traffic, 45min-1hr with traffic).
