I won mine!
This is a discussion on Did you buy your iPad or was it a gift? within the Apple iPad Polls forums, part of the Apple iPad Forums category; I won mine!...
I bought my iPad
It was a gift
Bought it for myself pretty much as soon as was it was available in the UK. Had to work hard to get permission from the wife first, though.
I bought mine last November after a long time waiting
Got mine as an 18th b'day present last June
Mine was a Christmas present from my wife and kids. But I was the one that went to the store to buy it. I also bought my wife's at the same time.
MacBook Pro, Core i7, 2.8GHz
iPad 64GB, 3G owner
iPod Shuffle owner
iPod Video 30GB owner
Droid cellphone, soon to be corrected to an iPhone
So nice that a lot of you received it as a gift from your spouse...how cool is that. Fun to also have won it as many of you have. I bought mine...and think it was one of my best investments in fun.
"Shaken not Stirred"
I bought the 64GB without 3G. Realised I needed 3G, and had to buy another as Best Buy wouldn't let me return the first one. Sold it though and got most of my money back.
My iPad was a gift.
