    Thinking of getting an iPad

    I'm thinking of getting an iPad. Question for those of you that actually have one, is it worth it? I think they're really cool and already have an iphone. Hubby keeps saying to me there's no point getting one as I have the phone and I have a netbook already and the iPad can't do as much as the netbook. What are your thoughts, get one or not?

    from my POV if they made it more of a tablet with say a ' i ' feature (to turn into current ipad style) i would buy it but need something i can download films directly onto without using itunes (my own avi's etc)

    make the ipad into a tablet mac(ie normal laptop style) with a button or program built in that lets you switch from mac to the 'ipad' software

    that more clear lol

    I use mine all the time instead of my MacBook air, it does get a bit annoying when certain websites won't work due to no flash, but that's the only real downside in my opinion.

    Defo get one..but not yet.as there is a new rumor that Apple will bring out the new iPad with camera to support FaceTime in late November

    I have an iPhone 4 and bought an iPad - Fantastic gadget in my opinion, but is really only a giant iPhone without the phone. So it does not fill a gap in my opinion. And I got rid of it very quickly. It was simply not worth it to me. I do love the apps and video / surfing etc. But it does end there.

    Hopefully apple will pull the macbook in line with the ipad and the ipad in line with the macbook if you know what I mean. At the moment there are too many things missing from the iPad to justify its price. And too much difference from PC to justify the Macbook.

    Do facebook games work on them? I have no idea whether or not facebook games use flash. I like to play mafia wars and monster world and farmville

    i have one and think its fantastic, read books, watch videos and the apps are great.
    Best thing is that the internet is always on, whereas with my laptop you have to turn it and wait for it to boot up, this is straight away.

    not having flash can be a problem, some websites just wont work, but you get by after a while. my biggest problem was when we wanted to check out disneyland and it wouldnt do anything, but most other web sites have been fine.

    reading is great on it.

    FarmVille works on iPad, but not in HD mode. The FV iPhone app can be used on iPad

    What about the pictures? The no right way to hold it is so good for showing photos. Just a nice simple feature that ive found useful showing off the holiday pics.
