I am a new member who is thinking about buying an ipad, particularly as I am going to the States in 2 weeks so it would be a lot cheaper to purchase there.
I am weighing up the pros and cons, trying to be honest with myself about what I will use it for - and therefore which one would be best for me - and if its a good move for me because frankly, I am not the most technically minded of people! But I do read a lot for research, paticularly newspapers and am fed up carting around 100s of photocopied newspaper articles when I could read them on an ipad instead and then - bonus! - store them for future use as well. I also want to read books, watch movies when travelling and answer emails/surf the web when need be.
