    Hello,

    I am a history teacher and would-be novelist. I just ordered my iPad, though it won't get here for a couple of weeks.

    I've never been a big Apple fan, despite the fact that I find the company and their history interesting. I've used Macs at school and preferred Windows. I've purchased other mp3 players over iPods because of price. I'm a big ebook reader and have had a Sony reader for about a year and a half. I was thinking of getting a netbook because they are getting so cheap. So I had no plans to buy an iPad. That changed when I held one and used it. It was like holding magic in my hands! It's freaking amazing! I had to have one. And every store (including the three Apple stores) in my home city was sold out. So I ordered it.

    I have a 64gb wifi model on the way and I can't wait.

    Welcome!

    Yes, we hear that a lot.

    Look through the other 'Howdy!' threads.
    You will see that many, many of us here are also people who have never been Apple owners before.

    You are in for a lot of fun!

    Welcome! Windows user here, and by no means an Apple fan. But, I don't care who the manufacture is, a good product is a good product. The iPad is great! You are going to really enjoy your iPad...
