Contemplating buying a iPad today........owners views

Had iPhones for ages and always liked them and i'm considering buying an iPad today......tried the Samsung Galaxy but found it a bit small.

Any owners can point out any pros or cons they've found with them?

Thanks.

not found any problems with mine, its handy to take on holiday, nice and compact rather than a bulky laptop.
good choice of free apps, they keep my 4 year old happy (she uses it more than me)
i went for the one which you can put a sim in, handy if the hotel you in, doesnt offer free wifi.

Definately worth the bit extra for the 3G one then?

would depend if you think £100 is worth it and if yu will get the use of it

Going to take the plunge as i'm like a little kid when it comes to new toys. X)

I love mine, have both the macbook pro and the iPad, and an iPhone 4, picked up the iPad for quite cheap in the USA, and don't regret it one bit!

I know.........i don't want it to end up being a flash in the pan. But everyone i know who has one raves about them. Would also free up the laptop from the kids and vice versa.

It's only me and him that don't do the gifts.........we buy for everyone else. Think it's because we just buy what we want usually so it would be a token thing that would probably not get used. lol

Love mine, use it more than the laptop. So handy and quick.
[helper]#16
You know you want one.....and sooner or later you're going to buy one to find out what the fuss is about..........so rather than humming and hawing for several days/weeks and then buying one just buy one now.

Job done - can I go home now X)
#17
I love mine. I would say jailbreak it and customise it to make it better
#18

Think my best buy so far for him was the LEGO Creator house for £22 from Amazon that Tinks posted when the Sainsbury's thread flopped.
