    I was so excited to find an iPad forum!

    I've been with Mac since Mac Plus (late 70's - early 80's) I've worked on many of the various upgraded models of Mac since then
    and I have most models of iPods, with the "Touch" being my most recent purchase, fell in love with it and can hardly wait to buy the iPad!

    I feel the same way about the iPad as I did about the very first Mac computer that I demo'd. I think it is going to change the world, in ways we can't yet imagine. The Macs far exceeded my expectations, I'm sure the iPad will too.

    YAY!!! Can't wait to get one!!! My Birthday is Saturday 27th, I was HOPING they'd be available by then at least for pre-order, that would be a great BDay present!

    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    I think this is the correct order of the models I've used.
    Apple II, Classic, Mac Plus, SE30, IICI, FX, Quadra, Mac Mini, Powerbook G4, IMac, G4 tower, G5 tower. Might have left a couple models out after the Quadra. . . . I do electronic stripping for print materials:)

    I meant to say. . .that I started with Apple late 70's (the Apple 2), then bought the Mac Plus when it first came out in the 80's. I'm currently on a G5 tower and G4 Powerbook, it's getting time to upgrade :)
