Since then, my boss now owns one, our COO has my old one, my physically disabled son uses one for his school work and my wife steals mine whenever I fall asleep or set it down for a moment at home. I probably do not need to mention the other 2 M plus units that have sold across the globe.

    Bottom line, the longer you wait the longer it is going to take you to get up to speed. This is not just another pop culture media device. This is a Swiss army knife to all of the things you do or will do. For example: reading, music, news, note taking, email, video, phone calls, prospecting, research, scanning or rather going paperless, banking, bill pay and personal organization.

    Everyone is talking about "the cloud", well the iPad is your window, door or skylight, whichever way you choose to look at it.

    Will there be something better in the future? YES! If there wasn't a possibility to get better or be better you wouldn't be on a forum with thousands of conversations about day to day experience.

    If you have an interest, then get off your A$$ and make it happen. The money will come back to you before you know it.

    Agree with Tim's rationale here 100% - especially "Bottom line, the longer you wait the longer it is going to take you to get up to speed"

    I'd never even given iPads a 2nd look, or held one until I got this one (iPad 2 16GB 3g/wifi) as a present about a month ago. Why? Well to be honest I didn't know anything about Apple (a lifelong PC user) and to be honest thought they were just a bit of passing trend - let's just say that now I know better and wish I'd not been so stubborn about them initially.
    I really don't know what I'd do without it now, or how I got by before - and I'm learning new ways to use it everyday, especially by being part of this forum and the wealth of advice and experience offered by other enthusiasts.
    Let's just say that when the iPod 3 comes out I will definitely be upgrading to one of those with 64GB - as I will be far more iPod savvy by then I hope  and my son can finally get his hands on this one full time!

    This.

    If you always wait for the next big thing, you will wait
    forever. I'd like a iPad15 now, but I'm not waiting for it...

    HD: High Definition screen -rumors on the internet -
    Buy one off craigslist now and sell it when the new one comes out, unless you decide to keep it instead of getting the new one. There will be a market for iPad 2 for a long time.

    Although it may be difficult to accept, as soon as a new widget goes on sale it is obsolete in many ways. This planned obselescence is in fact the point of all consumer industry...3D is good...now where is 4D. The goal is to generate rabid interest in the newest product so that even newer products can be developed while the current one is sold.

    I have an IPAD 2 because I wanted one not because I needed one. I doubt there are many people who do actually need an IPAD2. Does this make me one of the sheeple...sure, but at least I know I am a sheep.

    In short, buy one, do not buy one...it is up to you. However, be aware that you are buying an ideology and not just some collection of chips and wires. If you choose to be a sheep...that is okay, at least you are conscious enough to realize that you did have a choice to begin with.
