Keep it in mind if you need that capability.
    Thanks for the heads up. Like I said in my previous message, if nothing else, I am finding out how helpful this community is.

    I may still end up getting an iPAD, at least if I do, I will not do it for the wrong reasons and still do most of my real work on my laptop :-)

    Or, may be what I should do is see f I can purchase a used original iPAD (I am certain I can find someone who is itching to replace theirs with an iPAD2) and at least see what all these users mean by the "iPAD experience" :-)

    for any sort of viewing or anything like that i would wait for the iPad 3, its screen is going to be amazing - iPad 3 likely to get FULL HD displays! | iPad 3 Release Date. It looks almost certain these screen are going to come with it.

    I think most tablets will handle email and basic office programs. A tablet should be something small, lightweight and portable, the ipad 2 compared to the Thrive is a lot less bulkier imo.

    Ive decided to wait for the iPad 3, i will use mine mostly for image and video viewing so i want the HD screen

    While researching see if Splashtop might be a work around for you so you can enjoy the benefits of a tablet but still do the occasional heavy lifting of a desktop/laptop with it.

    Hey mounterbikermark, I see you've switched to the galaxy. Are you happy with the switch? I am getting really annoyed with how limiting my ipad2 is (even jail broken) and I am considering that same swap. I absolutely LOVE my android phone and find my self using it more and more lately and I am just waiting for a tablet with android os to function well enough to allow me to dump the iPad.

    The latest version of the Galaxy does look interesting. I'd have to say, though, that the tablet that intrigues me most at this point is the Lenovo ThinkPad tablet that will be released in August. Almost identical in specs to the Galaxy 10.1, it has a Lenovo combo keyboard/tablet case, as well. And it supports usb without an adapter. If the keyboard lives up to Lenovo standards, it will be a very interesting option.

    If I had a nickel for everyone one of these threads graced my iPad I would be a millionaire. Just saying.

    I think the new Galaxie Tab 10.1 is awesome, and also agree that the new Lenovo will take the lead in the android tab market. But I decided on an ipad2. Like a great car with no gas the android tablets are severely lacking in quality apps to run on them. I may revisit this in two years. It's going to take that long I'm afraid.

    The asus transformer looks quite interesting also, has anybody here tried one??

    I love my jailbroken 64 gig 3G ipad2, but there are still shortcomings that annoy me about it. That is probably true of any tablet at this point, but I like keeping an open mind about all my options.

    One thing to remember with iPad is that you get second to none after sales support from Apple. Buy and android tablet and where do you go when it goes wrong? Back to the store who usually send it away for a few weeks to be repaired and you are left without it and often, they don't actually resolve the problem.

    I was an android phone user looking for a tablet and right at the last minute chose iPad 2 because I know I have good after sales support and it's a much more stable device than any android device out there. They all have one problem or another, be it a tiny niggle to a hardware problem.

    Build quality isn't usually as good with android either because they are trying to cram as much as possible into one small tablet meaning more things to go wrong.

    Personally, since having my iPad 2 I have decided to sell my android phone and am loving the iPad so much I want a MacBook pro one day. Lol.

    That's coming from somebody who was so against Apple and now see just why they are so good.
