I've already had an iPad 2 before and i absolutely loved it. I sold it to get money for macbook air and now I'll be selling my windows laptop so I'll have a little money for another toy. so which decision to make. My time with the iPad was marvelous and I have nothing to complain of. the fire on the other hand is dirt cheap at 199. my tablet uses will also be 98% web surfing or reading. 1% playing games. 1% writing a quick email or a document. what do you guys think?
