A month or two ago I posted on here about getting one. Well nows the time.
Would you still get one?
Should I get one or should I really wait? Even though its halfway through its life cycle.
I'm also thinking about getting the Smart-cover and a cheap plastic see through case that is also Smart-cover compatible.
I've been seeing all these rumors about the HD which I don't think are true. Just doesn't seem like Apple. :apple:

I'd probably wait at least until after the iPhone event in Sept. If there's any iPad 2 HD, it'll most likely be announced during that event.

Same here except I have an iMac, MBA and iPhone 4. The MBA hardly ever gets used and I'm finding more and more ways to replace it with my iPad. The iPhone 4 gets used almost exclusively as a phone unless I really need internet in a pinch.

I ordered a 32Gb 3G for my father's birthday today. Even if an update comes in September, I'm sure he'll be making great use of it (at least I hope so!!).

If you really want it, get it now. If you can wait, see what Apple announces later this year.

The Ipad is a Great product and Apples support and warrantys can not be beat, No other company will replace your unit on the spot if there is a problem. I bought mine on launch day and I would buy it again in a second.

personally i would get one (and yes i'd buy one again) there are a few shortfalls but they are generally minor unless you are a power user.
and if all these rumors come to fruition, then you can always sell it and use the $$ to upgrade to the current model
