I purchased my IPad after attending a conference of fellow CEO's. I was in a hotel conference room, with my Dell Latitude e6400, which is pretty snazy, but the 3G connection is kind of "sketchy". Most of the other execs had IPads. They were all connected and working away. I wasn't. I bought 2 IPads that day, one for our CEO and one for myself. I love it! I wish I could print, and could find a nifty database program that I could design a custom app for, but that will come later.
