    I just ordered my Ipad. I honestly can not wait to receive it. I have been constantly reading everything I can about it. Most everything I have read has been positive.

    Too bad it doesn't ship until the 28th. That is going to feel like forever before I receive it. I ordered the 32gig 3G version. I am not sure what all I will use it for just yet. I do have a netflix subscription. I have been downloading all the free HD tv show episodes that the itunes store offers. Just trying to get a bit prepared for its arrival. lol

    For what it is worth, I ordered my 32gb 3G Memorial Day (May 31st) and received a delivery date of June 18th. Well, it showed up yesterday (June 15th), three days early....maybe the same will happen for you!

    Congratulations. For me, the iPad has lived up to all of my expectations and beyond. I've had it for 2 weeks now, and it goes with me to every meeting at work. As for play, well, I think everyone here knows how great it is for web surfing, social networking, games, etc.

    Like I've said, I've had it for 2 weeks, and my laptop has been collecting dust for 2 weeks :)

    I work in the IT field but really have not had any need/reason to use my iPad in the office. What would you like to do with the iPadwhile in the office?

    Its great in the IT field. Check out my thread in the iPad Apps section. Its a sticky at the very top called apps for people in IT. At my work we have an electronic sign in page to clock in every morning and clock out every afternoon and I can do it on my iPad. I also use my iPad for creating new incident tickets and checking of ones that have been completed. Remoting into the servers no longer requires running across buildings or finding the nearest computer, I can even do it while away via VPN on the iPad where ever I'm at. Going through emails is a breeze and its great having meeting invitations automatically ad into my calendar when someone sends me one.

    Today I just re-inventoried all our equipment with the app HanDBase.


    You will defiantly want to look into the remote desktop apps like WinAdmin or iTap RDP/iTap VNC.

    and the Twit Pad app. if your in IT you probably already know about Leo Laporte and TWiT, if not check out http://live.twit.tv for some awesome webcast.(Security Now is my favorite) you can also download them in iTunes for free under the podcast section.

    Mike,

    It looks like you have found all kinds of goodies. I didn't really have any specific uses in mind for the IT field. I suppose I was more curious as to what people may be using it for now. I just can't see it replacing my desktop here at work. I can see it being used like Mike was saying though. Just when you are not at your desk allowing RDP or VPN connectivity back to the servers/desktops etc.

    Thanks,

    Gary
