    Let me just say that until a week ago, I had never used an apple product...no iPod, no iPhone, and no iPad....no Macs for that matter. I was always a bit put off by the whole scene.

    I won a contest in my company and was presented with either a new Motorola Xoom or an iPad 2. They would order me my choice of either. I'm a long time PC and Android OS guy, but I thought I would give the iPad a try, so I went to Best Buy and used both...wow. I had no idea what I was missing. I had heard a statement, I think from Jobs, that said, "it's not about the specs, it's about the experience."

    That couldn't be more true. I am currently (anxiously) awaiting my iPad 2, which is slated to ship at the end of April. Sooooo long to wait, but I have a feeling it's worth it.

    Anyway, please be patient with me. I'm a 40 year old newb with i-gear, but I think I'm going to like it on this side of the fence.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Yes - the wait until the end of April can seem a very long time - so no excuse not to read the User Manual - see the link below....

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Apple - Support - Manuals

    It’s free too.
