    It's only been 3 weeks since I purchased my iPad2 32g and I dont know how I ever got along with out it? My Dell laptop has been down for 2 weeks and Dell is replacing it. I don't even miss it and that was my convenient device I used when I wasn't at my desktop. Honestly, the iPad has become my right hand tool for everything now. Web, voice memos, notes, entertainment, etc on a daily basis. I feel like before I had my iPad, I was rubbing two sticks together like a caveman. Mongo like iPad....:D.

    FYI...My recommendation for a few "must own apps" Goodreader, PS Express, Netflix, Google earth, Clock pro HD, iMovie, Pandora, Crackle, Weatherbug. These are some apps that will give you a pretty productive and well rounded iPad2.

    I couldn't agree more - instant-on, instant-off, ten hour battery life - no more searching for the seat in Starbucks near the power outlet!!

    Must have app? TuneIn for Internet radio - totally awesome app.....

    Agreed. Since I got the Zaggmate to go with my iPad2 I haven't turned my computer on outside of work hours. I used to spend four or five hours of my own time on it each day but the iPad has completely replaced it for the needs I've had so far. The one app that I will need to find at some point is a word processor but that will have to wait until one comes along that supports change tracking. Until then, when I need to edit something I'll have to fire up the laptop (yuck!)

    Agreed. I'd be totally lost without mine now. I don't listen to music, videos or pay games on it, but I use it for all other things.

    I totally agree, my laptop is so jealous of my iPad 2.

    I bought the ipad one in February. I know I could have waited but I am perfectly happy with the one. I had convinced myself that if I had an iphone I didn't need an iPad. But I needed to go to the apple store and while waiting for my appointment I play around with an iPad and was blown away with it. RIght after buying the iPad my desktop went down and the only computer I had was my netbook. I have not been in any hurry to replace my desktop and only use my netbook when I need to do something with the iPad. If I didn't need iTunes my iPad would be the only thing I use. For those who don't know the web browser Puffin gives you a complete desktop experience with flash and now with the update full video viewing and tabs.

    I started with iPhone then got the iPad to get a bigger screen, and now I'd be lost without my iPad, I agree with all comments above! I only use iPhone for camera, email, books if iPad is synching updates, phone of course and that's it. Love, love my iPad!

    I've had mine since the first of September last year. Still amazed at it and look forward to using it every day.

    There must be "something" there - 'cause normally, I move on to the next newest electronic thingy. But, I'm at 9 months and still going strong - with daily use.

    Love this "toy"!

    It really is changing the way we use computers.
    Now it travels everywhere I go, rather than me having to go to it.
    And with vpn everything on my other machines is immediately accessable.

    Good post, but one caution ... those with data caps from carriers will find Netflix and Crackle data streaming costing them a fortune. Wi-Fi unlimited is fine. FWIW.

    Zite is flat out awesome. For me it is the #1 news gathering app available. I also have Flipboard ... but I much prefer Zite. It is like having your own daily magazine or newspaper ... with the last info avail. It gets smarter based on what you select and read about the most.

    We check out the iPad2 w/Zite before turning on the TV for the latest news.;)

    Pages is a very capable word processor. I also like iAWriter for using the iPad w/o the mechanical add-on keyboard. Has a great spell checker. They have a added punctuation and scrolling keys which are really handy. Wish that keyboard was built-in to the iOS.

    I use iAWriter for writing but I need that one feature for editing and (to the best of my knowledge) none of the iPad .doc compatible WPs has it yet. One of them - I don't remember which one at the moment - will show tracked changes and comments but none of them will allow me to track the changes that I make or selectively accept/reject changes that someone else has made.

    One of the biggest revelations for me since getting mine is that sleep is overrated.:D

    Oh, yeh, you are damn right! What is sleep deprivation when it's at home on your couch, bed, patio! 1 or 2 am in the morning
