So I have been thinking about getting an iPad but I simply can't justify my reasons for spending the $500+. My friend got an iPad last Christmas and it seems like all he does with it is play games, iMessage, and sometimes watch Netflix. In class, I would prefer having a MBP (or other laptop) to be able to take notes more efficiently.. granted an iPad is a great way to check e-mail and look at powerpoint slides. Basically, what are some reasons you guys love your iPads??
