Just got my iPad 3G last Friday same day as launch of iPad 2. Settled for iPad first gen since the iPad 2 line was way too long for me to wait... and I needed it quickly. I'm using my iPad as an IT support tool when I am on the road or at home because of its portability and convenience. I can VPN in and remotely log into my servers, workstations, routers, firewall appliances and everything else my job requires, as well as share files, print and view, edit Word and Excel files. Initially, when the iPad came out last year, I was very skeptical about its use in IT. A year later, I'm sold!
