I was curious about the IPAD2, on the day it was released I was out shopping and decided to take a chance and check Futureshop, they only had the 16G model left so I went across the road to BestBuy and joined a short line, a salesperson came by and I asked how the process worked, he sent another salesperson over who offered me a ticket for the 32G WiFi + 3G so I took it. Shortly after that people who had been waiting in line ahead of me realized that they had not received a ticket, I thought there was going to be a riot, lol. A bunch left very quickly before I had a chance to find out who was first ahead of me without a ticket, since I wasn't that intent on buying the iPad2. That's how I ended up with the iPad2. Now that we have it we love it, it's used every single day and the apps are really impressive. My wife, who I didn't think would care for it at all, is addicted, as are our 3 kids. It's simply amazing. It certainly isn't cheap, but the fact that it's used so much makes it worthwhile. I recently picked up a new Yamaha receiver that is controlled by the iPAD2, how cool is that! We took it away on our last 10 day cruise, it was so much more convenient than lugging the laptop along. Yes it is a toy, but it's a very very cool toy. If you can afford it, go for it, you won't regret it.
