I played with an iPad and now im almost positive im getting one. i love how sleek it is. its weird, because i made fun of it before playing with it too, haha. it just seems like its so damn convenient. i already find myself using my laptop less and less since i've got the iphone, and i feel like with an ipad i would use it even less. i'm not rich by any means, but im pretty nerdy and feel like i could make decent use of the ipad. are there any initial problems to know about? do people use screen protectors or anything like that? are apps still mostly $0.99? so.. do you like it? worth the $500+? thanks! any opinions will directly influence what i do!
