I'm a retiree living on the family ranch in the Texas Hill Country. I've been working with computers since the '80's, but now use mine to keep in touch with friends & family and music and news. Been with Apple for about 3 years now, and have really wanted something to take out and about. I have an older iTouch that I really enjoy, but want something like a small laptop. The iPad seems perfect, both in size and with what it can do. The price is just the icing on the cake! Looks like I'll be getting what I want sooner rather than later because of that.
