    64GB 3G Black ipad 1 (hes keeping it as a collectors item and gonna frame it in his wall)
    64GB 3G black ipad 2 (keeps at work office)
    64GB 3G white ipad 2 (mounted as his car deck)
    64GB wifi black ipad 2 (for top floor master bedroom in house)
    32GB wifi white ipad 2 (for main floor kitchen)
    16GB wifi black ipad 2 (for basement)
    64GB 3G white ipad 2 (for his 11yr old girl)

    Yes hes rich and he wanted to minimize having to carry around an ipad with him so he bought enough for his needs and pretty much all are kept stationary.

    One can never have too many iPads. 

    That said, it sounds like he doesn't want to carry it around from place to place in his house, like the rest of us poor slobs do. If I were him, I'd just have one for my general use, one for my kid and then one attached to the back of my butler, servant, aide or whatever and have that person tag along wherever I go. Then I can say "Hey, shine my shoes. I wanna read the New York Times."

    I have two iPads, but I tend to use one at a time and carry it around, because I want to keep reading what I was reading, watching what I was watching, etc., without restarting and such. It'd actually be a pain for me to have to leave one iPad and start using another midstream. I have two only because I want the convenience of having one to use while the other is charging or synching. I don't see owning seven iPads as a plus, no matter how wealthy you are. But hey, that's me. If seven iPads make him happy, more power to him.

    Updating and syncing all of them? Ouch! Perhaps the Butler does it? :D:D

    ...Wow, that really is a lot of iPads. I only have 1 iPad, and that's already enough to suit my needs. 7 just boggles the mind!

    Also, does his butler carry him around the house?

    Since he can't carry his iPad from room to room, seems like he might not be able to carry his own weight.

    Imagine having to constantly sync seven devices. Way more bother than it's worth.

    I can see the point of it actually.

    Kitchen iPad for recipes, supermarket food lists etc...
    Car iPad for movies, music, games for travelling
    Bedroom iPad for movies, music, oh, everything
    And so on and so on
    I'm surprised he doesn't have one in the loo for goodness sake!

    Come on guys, you are jealous, if you had the money, you would do it too!!!

    I would!

    Nope, think about all that syncing...... One iPad, one laptop, one PC.....is enough:) although PC will be replaced by a new Mac Mini in July!

    Yeah, but if you don't want to synch, a lot of guys on here, haven't synched since they got them. If you have 1 or 2 fine, but if it doesn't matter about any updates, why bother?
