Preorder now at apple.com, got my 32gb 3G version in the queue!

Finally, full size web browser at the field to look stuff up, it's almost embarrassing that this, and browsing the web while one the pot, are my two compelling reasons to own an iPad

I thought about buying one as incentive to get the kids to read more.

I'll wait and see what the reviews look like on it.

I'm a Mac BTW!

I'm going to buy 5 for the family and post "My new toys"

It's going to be a neat device. Some will hate, some will love this gadget. I love my iPhones I only use them for fun apps. With a bigger screen, the iPad will be fun! Btw, I'm a PC guy but I just like MAC for the fun apps.

I'm waiting to get my hands on one at the Apple store. I'm just not convinced it's going to be cool yet.

I seriously think the tablet idea is great, but the price of the iPad is too high to take it seriously. Why buy an iPad that can't do everything when you can get a netbook for half the cost that does everything with more storage?

oh, btw I'm a mac too!

This hobby is like Kryptonite to chicks!

The iPad uses less electricity than the macbook...therefore it is friendlier for the environment....therefore you need one, because you care about baby seals, etc. etc.

(just ignore energy used to manufacture it because Apple can show that the majority of their product's carbon footprint happens after it leaves the showroom floor)

In fact, if you dont start using an iPad immediately I imagine that we might run out of electricity/oil sooner, so its for the good of humanity that you buy an iPad

As soon as they get an iPad running OSX I will be in. Till then I will just use a laptop/macbook or my iPhone.

I did find this funny as hell though:

my wifes uncle had one at the gathering this weekend. It was neat. Basically an Ipod with a bigger screen. I'd probably get one if I had a spare $500.00 that I absolutely couldn't spend anywhere else.

Why are folks going gaga over these? You can't view a Flash-based website last I read.

Egg Zackly. How useful can a web device be without Flash implementation?

In my mind that's a major shortfall.

Flash is dying a slow painful death. It uses too much cpu/battery on smaller devices, so everyone is doing sporadic conversion to html5.

Flash is dying because Apple is trying to kill it.
It's personal at Apple.

Don't worry - HTML5 will replace Flash - and it's an open standard.

HTML 5 is not going to replace over 1 million free games you can play for free on line.

It's crazy to drop $500+ on something to go on the internet with that won't support flash.

I've read on techcrunch that wifi is not working very well on it.....according to some reports and the editor as well....

If this baby in fact has wifi issues they are going to have a lot of angry sheep:
