10 days or so after release, would you still recommend purchasing an ipad? I'm looking at the 32 gb 3G version.

Any buyer's remorse?

I got mine Friday and I have a lot of feelings about my iPad. Remourse is certianly not one of them. This thing is awsome. I reach for this thing all the time. My net book is sad.

I got my iPad a week ago and love it. I'm going into debt with Apple products but once I played with the iPad I couldn't leave without one. It's great. I was able to go see my great niece today who is 4 months old and she was watching Sesame Street videos and Dancing with the Stars on the ABC app. She has good taste!

No buyer's remorse here!

Wasn't going to buy one. Bored last Friday. Went to the Apple Store. Bought the iPad. This thing is NEVER going back. Now I want the 3G version. Thing is sweet.

Mdfuller's response is exactly what's going to happen to hundreds of thousands of people over the summer, and probably more still as we head into the holidays. I have a hard time not seeing the iPad as *the* hot gift for well-to-do people this year.

Some analyst projected the 1st Gen iPad to sell about 7 million copies during it's lifetime.

That would be a HUGE success. I don't doubt it either, but the experience that happened with mdfuller is going to happen to a lot of people.. Whether they play with it in the Apple Store, their friends or family members iPad, or simply buy one on intuition, Apple has another hit on their hands.

I wasn't very interested in it to begin with, mainly because I already have an iPod Touch and my MacBook, and didn't exactly see where it would fit in line in terms of daily use.. However, after seeing everything about it and watching/reading about other's experiences with it, it's definitely peaked my interest.

Once I save up the extra $$, I'll definitely give the purchase of an iPad heavy consideration.

Sounds like that analyst is assuming the iPad will be replaced with another model in a year's time. I'd guess longer myself (not counting very minor refreshes or OS updates, that is -- I'm talking about a true v2 iPad, I'd say we won't see it before 2012.

I think 7M in its first full year of availability is a very achievable goal. At the rate they're going they'll have moved a million units before the iPad is available for sale outside the US.

I went to apple and bestbuy yesterday, expecting them to at least have one kind of ipad version, but everyone was sold out. I was bummed out when I went home empty handed. I still like it very much for what I want out of it. If you don't know what you want from it, I would suggest rethink your plan. What are you looking to get out of it?

I was just at Best Buy and they have a slew of all models in stock. I asked the sales guy if I brought my 32 gig back for a 64 gig if I would be charged a restocking fee and he said, "Nope" you have 14 days to return it, so I'm going to go ahead and get pay the $100.00 and get the 64 gig.

Had mine since day 1 with no remorse at all. It's deifnitely a luxury item and not a necessity, but I am really enjoying using in bed and on the couch where I would very rarely if ever take my laptop. Also took it on one business trip so far where it was a niceconvenient way to surf the web and whatnot at the hotel. Trips with flights will be even better.
