    I bought it again!
    Seriously.

    May 27thish...
    Stopped into an Apple Store in my area that surprisingly had all 3 wi-fi models available.
    I picked up the 16gb and was enamored.
    The build quality on the device, the intuitiveness, subtlety yet slick Apple bombast.
    Again, enamored.
    Cost was an issue.
    I enjoyed the iPad for a week and on the 8th day, having problems justifying the purchase, I paid the restocking fee, and returned it.
    Bummed now and strangely a little more consumed with the device.
    Scouring the web for thoughts like mine I concluded...
    I deserve this and it would be mine again.

    days later...
    32 GB wi-fi @ Best Buy in Union Square.
    GOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLLL de me!

    I'll make up that 50$ restocking mistake and all will be right with the universe.

    I had 2 dreams about this thing in the week between returning it and getting another one! Come on!
    I'm not a Mac loon either but I love the form & function that comes with said devices.
    This one in particular has a feel to it which is singular and unmatched..
    An absolute taste of the future of personal computing and media consumption, in a sexy little package.
    Seriously, this thing is just sexy.

    I've lurked here for a couple years...
    Absolutely solid folks.
    Pleased to make your acquaintance.

    I think this is one thing that is commonly overlooked. Even though the iPad is cool right now, it's opening a door to a much bigger shift in personal computing that is just touching the tip of the iceberg.

    I'm not sure how you managed to be parted from the iPad in the first place, nothing could part me from the iPad now.
