I started getting serious about considering an iPad when I realized that I will have to give up my library whenever we downsize (I'm at retirement age). I've been wanting to update my 32G iPod to one that can hold everything, and we have an old laptop PC which we use on vacations to do e-mail, web browsing, movies, & games. At the Apple Store, our grandchildren loved the games.
The iPad should make my iPod irrelevant, allow us to give away our laptop, and get us started in e-books.

I plan to use mine for:
1. Stairmaster and other cardio machines - to watch movies/TV shows and read books to distract myself, and even surf the web (which I can't do with a laptop... who wants to use a mouse or keyboard while doing Stairmaster?!)
2. Surf the web on the sofa while watching TV (wow, that makes me sound like a colossal couch potato - see point 1 to negate that)
3. Read books etc. while on long car trips
4. Read while I'm bored in line (I do this already with iPhone, but iPad's large screen will make this a much more pleasant experience)
5. Have a running slideshow of my photography work while clients are in my studio (plus, I will load several Disney movies to keep their kids happy during viewing appointments)
6. Set it in the kitchen with whatever recipe I'm making (SO HAPPY not to have to print out recipes from now on!!)
7. Read or watch a movie under the covers in bed when I can't sleep and don't want to wake my husband up!
Use "Starwalk" for stargazing, Use compass to align telescope, Read Sky and telescope Digital edition, Listen/view astro podcasts.....Then ... e-mail....
One great usage I've found is fast reference when I'm using programs like Lightroom or Paintshop. With the iPad standing beside my monitor I can easily check PDF manuals and/or videos whiteout having to alt tab out. Very convenient.
Ooh, that's a good one. That, and having a useful tech support forum thread open while I'm solving a computer problem. I've wasted so much paper in my lifetime printing things like that that only have a one-time use. No more wasted ink and paper!

Guys, There is so many hidden secrets and things that this magic device can do. Just keep discovering and keep all of us posted. Thanks.
