Hello From West Michigan!
I bought my iPad 3 a few months ago and thus far have been very happy with it. I mainly use it for business purposes but after the wife got a hold of it, she wants to change everything we own over to apple. It looks like we will each be getting an iPhone 5 in the fall thanks to the simplicity of the iPad.
I have a ton of questions on how to better use my iPad and will be searching for answers here as well as talking with the people at my Apple Store. This is also the first Apple product that I have ever owned and a client of mine encouraged me to get one.
