    I'm 29, and I totally expected my age bracket to be the majority here. I'm shocked at some of the ages represented here! Good for you guys for proving the stereotypes wrong.

    I feel like a spring chicken now. Figured I'd be one of the older ones. I guess it is true that younger folks aren't generally in a position to afford one of these techno-marvels. Good for us gainfully employed folks, eh? Get a job, you whippersnappers!

    72+4 months here. Been using computers since 1960 [IBM 704 in college]. Photography/video hobby and planned to use my 64GB wifi as a photo/video display unit. It sure does lots more.

    57. What's the oldest?

    Strange how the list stops at over 55!

    Is there not much more life after 55?

    I'm in my mid-30s, although I'm not surprised at the skew of ownership towards the senior age bracket. (I suspect the price point is a major factor.)

    Wow, this is a genius poll. I never would have thought that people as old as 79 were using iPads. I know that that is a complete stereotype, but I truly thought that the majority of iPad owners would be at a lot younger age. I think that's so awesome!

And it gets better with time...at 69 I taking a dreamweaver class and learning flash....and the best part when you are over 65, classes are free :)

    I fall under the 16-24 year range respectively.

    It pleases me to see how easily we all converse when quite a lot of us are from different generations altogether.

    NPD data says the typical (over 60%) iPad owner is a male in his late 30s or 40s, so the poll seems about right so far.

    I figured I'd be the oldest.....after my husband. But a few in this thread are my contemporaries. 70 in January and he made 85 in August. i waited in line for hours the first day the 3g was released and the kids around me thought i was the coolest great grandma they'd ever set eyes on. Periodically checking email on my web connected Toshiba TabletPC Convertible didn't hurt that perception, either. it's a long way from the 360 mainframes i used to repair for IBM back in the early 70's. My 17 year old grandson totes the new iPhone and asks to use my iPad every time he drops by. This summer he introduced me to his new girlfriend....and HAD to mention I have an iPad in my purse.

    It is interesting to see that most of the iPad owners are older than I expected. I am 51 and live in Bangalore. It is not yet launched in India so I had to source it from US 3 months back :( I have lots and lots of gadgets but never obsessed with anything else like iPad :)

    I'm 27. I got my 16gb from my Dad. He has a 64gb now (both are wi-fi models) and he's 48

    I never thought I would love this thing as much as I do...but it's completely awesome and then some.
