    Buying an iPad?

    If so, why?




    If you don't have any regrets now, do u feel like u might in the near future, perhaps if u see another tablet w/ much better specs at a lower price and it might get u thinking u should have waited a lil longer before investing in a tablet..?

    No regrets, and I don't think I'll change my mind on that.

    I can't say that I regret buying it, but I was surprised by some of the limitations. I was expecting at least the basic computer functions like being able to easily transfer, view, store, and edit most types of files. You can do some of that using third party apps but it is clunky at best.

    I also have a problem with Apple's philosophy of "we know what you need better than you do".

    If you are looking for a pad computer this is not it. It's basically an iPod touch with a big screen.

    No regrets, that doesnt mean I dont have frustrations, but the good outweighs the frustrations.

    I've found ways around the frustrations. I couldn't be happier.

    Don't regret buying it at all. Like others have said there a few limitations but jail breaking it has allowed me to solve those issues. I am a fan of android phones but I don't see myself going towards an android tablet. It would have many of the same limitations as the ipad but it seems to me it would lack tablet specific apps. I just don't see a lot of publishers putting high quality apps out for the many different spec'd tablets.

    No regrets, because the instant a fully functional Android tablet comes around, this thing is sold for basically what I bought it for, since Apple people seem to suspend logic when purchasing used Apple products off Craigslist.
