New Ipad owner and apple covert about one year ago. I switched to apple products starting with a 21.5" Imac about One year ago. I also have an iphon4 now. I went to Verizon to look at the New IPad. All my research was about MacBook air. Now i'm a proud owner of a New IPad. Go figure! I spent many hours reading about different tablets & net books to find which one was best for me. I could write paragraphs about my research but I will keep it short. When looking for any of these products it will pay off to spend time researching what best fits your needs & budget.
