    I gave iPad a chance....
    Well, I waited with everyone else for the Ipad 3g... finally received it but I think I am going to return it. Now that I own it I really dont see myself using it alot, I have my IMAC, Macbook and Iphone.... so I dont see any reason for keeping this Starbucks Toy lol..

    I know most of you love it and I am still the worlds biggest Mac fan but I just dont like it...

    I also hate how expensive the apps are... I just wanted to rant on here lol after my wifes speech of "I told you so" lol

    Don't you hate it when the wife is right!

    Hey, I am crazy about my iPad, but like everything else it's not for everyone. Glad you found out soon enough to take it back...

    Me too! iPod touch says "pick me up and use me" MBP says "please use MY keyboard for a change"

    I will find a happy balance eventually, but right now I love this thing!

    Oh yea, I don't even use my iPhone anymore except for text messages and phone calls, and the 3G is so incredibly slow by comparison. Takes forever to open and switch between apps

    I couldn't fall in love either. I gave it 5 days at about 4 plus hours a day, just to be sure.

    I'm sure some people like reading this being that it will help them decide better, if their current devices fill their needs already.

    As for me, I use my iPad so much that my laptop never gets used anymore also. But that might as well be a good thing, because my Macbook's Applecare ran out, and I need it to last me for a while more still.

    Cool man. At least you gave it a chance before writing it off like many others did. I currently use mine more than my MBP and iPhone combined, but my sole purpose of purchasing it was for the Book Reader function. I love sitting on the couch with it and having the "instant on" access to it as opposed to grabbing the 15" laptop, turning it on, and balancing it on my lap while trying to pay attention to what I"m watching.

    I can totally appreciate that there are many people who not only do not need an iPad "let's face it none of us need one" but also don't enjoy using it enough to merit the cost. I on the other hand look for reasons to use it just because I enjoy it. For example, if I was on my iMac right now I wouldn't bother responding to this thread but because i am on my iPad I am and am enjoying it!! Go figure.......

    Lol....also, the iPad is an attention getter at the coffee shop or Barnes and Noble!!! I always go in there and write down cooking recipes from cookbooks, but now I just type them into my notepad app and people always walk over and start up a conversation about it. Now all you college people need to put this to memory.....chicks will dig it!!!

    When I first got mine, the wife didn't understand why I would need this. Since I already had a MacBook and an iPhone. After a few days she noticed, " hey come your not lugging your computer bag to work everyday?" and then a few days later she started playing with it is well. Now when we sit on the couch, it's literally a fight on who gets to use it, and who gets to yes the MacBook.

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '11 1.8 i7 4GB 10.10; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.10; 5s & 5c
    It's taken me a month to learn how to do a few things and be able to move my MBP off the arm of the recliner.

    It's definitely fulfilled my expectations for my initial reason for wanting one and think it will fulfill my desired expectations when they add arrow keys to the keyboard.

    My main problem now, is when I want to help someone out with a Mac issue I'm going "How do I do that?". Senility you know. I was hoping for 90% of my regular tasks and it's probably up to 80%. The times between picking up the MBP are getting longer - up to two days at a time now instead of two hours.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Would you say that the 3G is faster on the iPad compared to the iPhone? I'm wondering if I should I gotten a3G model instead...
