    Hi Yilli--I felt a little bit like you when I bought my iPad a year ago. Prior to that I had apple iPods and shuffles, but having that iPad was the changeover for me! As Gabriel1 said, it's never too late...and this is a wonderful forum to be part of!

    So welcome to you! :)

    Thank you all. I have had 12 days with my 1st iPad. It happened to be 3rd generation "iPad New", although I was supposed to get 4th generation of it. I actually confused when the salesclerk sold that version to me 'cause I've read that 4th generation would be landing here early December. I don't blame the seller, because they're, whether the 3rd or 4th gen, all called "iPad New" and they both have retina screen. Anyway, I called the store and hopefully I can replace it (pay a bit more) with the 4th gen iPad New which is landing here 3rd of Dec. Fyi; the iPad (3rd generation) Wi-Fi + Cellular model number is A1430 and the iPad (4th generation) Wi-Fi + Cellular model number is A1459.

    It took 12 days to fall in love with my 1st iPad :), I felt very sorry when I reset it yesterday; just felt as if one of my family members or pet is going away. I hope my 12-days old iPad have a new good person to take care of it and I'll have mine in 2 weeks time :)
