There is something about the 1G iPad design that I just love. Yes it's thicker and heavier but it just feels like a tank (in a good way). In fact, I can't bear to part with it so I'm keeping it when I get my 3rd gen tomorrow. Maybe it's just me but I also kind of like having it around - it was such a cool experience that I'm kind of nostalgic. I know it wouldn't make sense from a marketing perspective to go backwards but it would definitely buy one.
