I have the iPad 2 and I love it! I usually leave it at home during the day, so my wife and kids can facetime with me on my lunch break at work. I don't use it for any major computing, but the entertainment, household and children's educational apps gives it an A+ in my book. In addition, with the use of Dropbox, I can access documents and other files on the iPad that are on my home or work computers, so I can use it for some business purposes if I want. Before I bought the iPad, I purchased a Coby 7015 Android pad. It was only $99, so I said, "what the heck"! It was pretty good, but had a couple of different problems and bugs that may or may not have been fixed in subsequent updates. It now sits inside my desk drawer at home. I may take it out and try to update it sometime. All in all, it's really changed the way I use computers at home, besides the fact that I can use the Kindle and Nook apps on the iPad, too.
