    I spend half my frickin time hitting the wrong buttons and pushing "back". It takes longer to do everything on the iPad, except check email and read news articles. I find myself relieved to get back on the laptop and not have to deal with touch screen (pinch, zoom, scroll, type, magnifying glass, etc). And now I force myself to use iPad, so I don't feel like I wasted $777 dollars on another gadget I didn't need in the first place.

    Basically, it's a really great reader. A laptop is more appropriate for every other computing need.

    I feel the exact opposite of all of that....maybe it's not for you.

    If it becomes a PITA, there's always eBay. Bet you wouldn't have too much trouble unloading it for a good price.

    considering how awesome it is and how many people want one I would say it should be no problem getting your money back on ebay.

    Observations after two days w/ 3G

    I find it better for almost everything. The only things I have gone to my computer for since I got the iPad are major gaming and syncing my iPad

    I have totally killed the battery every day since Friday which shows the extent of my use!

    What about printing?
    Most probably tapped on my iPad!

    Sell it! When I get something that just isn't for me, I take it back or if it is too late for that I sell it. That is way too much money to spend for something you don't enjoy.....

    What I've noticed is the 250 mb can really wither within a good use of the iPad under the 3G service!! I used 150 mb in a 2 hour span.. Unlimited data is definitely worth the extra 15 dollars!! With that said I'm in love with the iPad..
