I've had my iPad for around a year and just found this forum. The device is so intuitive, I've not felt the need for help, but I've not been very adventurous. The best thing has been the entertainment potential when on holiday, with my music, e-books, dvds, websurfing and emails.
The ability to use word processing and spreadsheets has been really useful, especially in conjunction with GoogleDocs.
All this with no need to jailbreak it!
Now that we have iOS5, I guessed it might be time to join, so here I am!
Hope you've all had a great Christmas holiday, and that your New Year is good for you.
