    My other half is using my old iPad to see if they want the iPad 2 here. Was taken back when they told me they might want the 16GB 3G model! LOL A little frustrated on that since I gave them a 3GS iPhone for Valentines day. Made mention of the hotspot feature of the iPhone 4... they said they would never use it... LOL

    The iPad changes everything. LOL

    Bought 2 on launch day to prevent this from happening. :D

    The extra $$$ spent is worth it to me.

    It happened with me with my iPad 1: I got one and pretty soon my wife and daughter were asking to borrow "the iPad". I pointed out to them that it wasn't "the iPad" but "my iPad". We now have 3 iPads...

    My wife has used mine, but not hogged it. My daughter is more of the problem as she always wants to play on YouTube on my iPad. I just ordered a 18GB wifi model today for the both of them to use & leave their mitts off of mine!

    Me too!

    Been there, done that.

    Got mine on release day after waiting in line 7+ hours with my wife in tow. Despite having the first iPad since shortly after release she had never touched it once. Got the new one and that night she was surfing away on her iPhone while laying on the couch and I was like, "Here, try this!" :)

    Next thing ya know I'm up at 4AM on Saturday and heading to my Apple store where I got her a white 64GB Verizon model.

    What makes this all even more sad is mine is just 32GB. :(

    My wife wants everything I have. First it was my MBP, so I got another one to give her mine, then it was the MBA, had to get her one too, then it was the iPad 1, I was able to hold off till now but since I have the iPad 2 and sold off the 1 she now wants the 2....and the 3G version. She's not really technically savvy but she needs for things to just work! Finding wifi hotspots is nit an option.

    I guess I got lucky since my wife doesn't want her own. Actually she doesn't even use mine much.

    My wife would not let me not buy an iPad 2. Shee wanted my iPad 1 badly. Upon finding my iPad 2, I proceeded to give her the iPad 1. Now peace and happiness has ensued. :)

    Yeh, my wife does not care for the ipad at all. She doesn't like facebook on ipads and prefers the mb pro. I'm the complete opposite and haven't barely touched my laptop since getting this a year ago.

    After the first week I was considering picking up a 2nd one for my wife. Luckily Verizons $299 Ipad 1 blowout sale happened that day and I grabbed an IPad 1 for my wife.

    I'm finishing law school while my finacee lives two hours away. We're in a joint custody agreement where we swap it every other week. It sucks.

    Nah, my wife doesn't seem to like the iPad much. We lined up together for the iPad 2, and once we got up to the door she decided that I didn't need to buy her one :cool: Seemed like the only reason she was considering it is that "new tech" feeling :) But she just doesn't see the iPad as practical for her.

    She is happy with her MBP.

    It is ironic that this thread was started today, because I recognized this morning that my wife is a thief and has stolen my iPad 2. Now I have to buy another one.

    My girlfriend didn't want one at first, but then she was telling me how she was talking to a coworker about which iPad to get. She knew all the specs and price points... I was so proud of her, all those conversations I've had with her trying to convert her to a rabid Apple fan had paid off! I waited in line the next Saturday and got her one of her own, a white 32 wifi like mine with a red cover. She's using it in her classroom, showing the kids videos today, and loves it!
