Hello fellow iPad bubbas. I arrived at the iPad after buying and returning two different Sony ereaders, a nook ereader, and bad-mouthing the iPad for weeks. I was wrong. The iPad is worth every penny and I should have bought it first. I'm glad I didn't because I know exactly what I'm missing in the other ereaders. Nothing, I bought 2 64GB wifi models. One for me and one for the wife. We're both avid PC users and both enjoy electronic devices as a routine part of our life. Our iPads were bought in addition to, not as replacements for. They are becoming the device of choice for a lot of the things we used to use our laptops or net books for - we both have one of those as well. Look forward to learning lots here on the forum.
