    I don't draw or do video editing. I use the iPad to surf the web, read ebooks, check email, iMessage, calendar, todo list, some document editing using Pages, casual games.

    Reading and web. But I have to say, the Safari refresh is getting more and more annoying by the day. It's definitely detracting from the experience.

    Same. :cool:

    To me, the really annoying part is that I was already used to the constant browser refresh starting with the iPhone 2G up until the iPad 3/iOS 5. However, I experienced a significant decrease in Safari webpage refresh with the iPad 4/iOS 6 (I think it was just iOS 6 in general). Now on the iPad Air/iOS 7, the refresh became more a lot more frequent again. :(

    I use mine for drawing/art, writing, podcasts, streaming music, ebooks/magazines/PDFs/newspapers, websurfing and a few games. I also have an app on it I use for a part time gig I do and my husband uses it with an iRig HD to jam on his electric guitar. :)

    It is a good entry device though. I heard Procreate is a good app right?

    I use it for everything I can. That means internet surfing, music, videos, movies, Office 365, note taking and streaming. It can't replace my MBP, but it does a fine job supplementing it, in my opinion.
