    Interesting poll. I too thought the average age would be much younger.
    Go Baby Boomers!

    Another interesting poll would be to see how many male & female users. Would it split 50/50 or?

    Compuslave, another fond (not) memory.

    It is amazing how the age group is skewed to the older people, of course the younger ones are probably just too busy playing on their iPad to be on forums like this.

    Absolutely stunned at the numbers right now. Even though I'm part of the 16-24 demographic....I wonder if it's because most people in this age group don't need to seek assistance on a forum?

    I think population being skewed towards older adults isn't due to us needing more help, but rather that 1) we can better afford an expensive toy and 2) younger people are more "on the go" and a pocket size device probably suits them better.

    My teen wasn't impressed with the iPad. He always has his phone, and at home, he's got his computer and several game consoles in his room.

    That's true, many of the things I do on the iPad I see the younger people doing on a phone. I don't do that stuff on a phone because my eyes aren't good enough to see it on a phone, but the iPad is the perfect size.

    I'm 24...my fiancée is 23, and we both have iPads, and iPhones. The iPads are for playing with at home, and the iPhones are for on the go. I don't consider an iPad a phone replacement though!

    I don't think that's it. Most people here aren't really here to seek help, but to join a community of other iPad fans, and read up on what is new.

    I think younger people may be on the go more, and be more content with their iPod touch or iPhone. Plus older people would tend to have a little more income.

    I have two children with ipads, ages 19 and 28 and they would both tell you they just have better things to do than sitting reading a forum!
