Please, no flaming, or at least keep it to a minimum. I'm curious as to why so many want an ipad? What features and capabilities does it have over what you currently have, makes it so good. Why is it better than what's already out there, and again, better or at least a welcome addition to what you have? What does the ipad do that doesn't overlap with what you currently have? What niche does it fill exactly. When you saw what the ipad did, why did you think, oh boy, none of these other things I've got sitting around can do that, I need this too.
