Just buy it if you want
Ipad is a waste of money unless you use it. And you can use a lot of neat things. Most powerful thing Is the web surfing with instant on/off from the couch.
I am an amature photographer and I shoot about 10,000 pictures a year -- there is no better device out there for looking at those pictures, period! or for web surfing IMO.
O.K. guys, I got one yesterday. Really enjoying it and it's as wonderful as you all said! Thanks.
It kept bugging me ( I also agree that it applies to most things), and then I came back to the thread... what is not a waste of money if you DON'T use it?
-a credit margin
-a fire extinguisher
-a spare tire
-car accident insurance
(apologies for the threadjack, couldn't resist)
