    Hi all
    I have been lurking a bit before I took the plunge and bought an Ipad 2,
    I previously had the Asus Transformer which while being a very nice pad It just didn`t have the smoothness or slickness of the Ipad. Anyway that was sold on Ebay to fund my new purchase, on the Transformer bbc iplayer was so so but on the Ipad its a thing of beauty, what finaly swung it was the Apps...nearly all are released on Ipad 1st and usually better than the Android version.Just my opinion and I`m sure I`d get shot down in flames if I posted this on the Transformer forum..I just got fed up of having to flash custom firmware to make it do things properly.

    Mike

    Welcome Mike.
    I'm sorry your previous experience wasn't as good as it could have been, but as a heavy user since the day the iPad was released I still find myself thinking what a neat bit of kit it is.
    It doesn't do everything, but what it does do is done with ease and grace and where it fails there's usually a workaround somewhere.
    Thankfully the old android/apple, open/closed arguments seem to have died down somewhat with reality triumphing over the hype.
