    Hi, I wrote yesterday on new introduction thread and trying again here, I was hoping today to order an Ipad and trying to figure out what size to get, the best cover for it, etc.

    I will be using for e-reader for Bookclub, music, pics, to watch movies on planes, email while traveling, etc.

    Please advise if there is a place on this site that gives answers to these questions.

    Thanks!!!

    Going for it!

    Just got pm from son n law that Apple has a rare sale on it today so ordering the 64GB one.

    I wish we had the GPS but don't want the monthly charges of 3g...

    Wish I had time to wait for answers here but have to go to work in a few hours...semi retired here and work for great B & B in the mountains!! :)

    Since you say you don't want to pay data charges, probably you can go smaller. With an app called ZumoCast you can access your computer files from your iPad. Even stream music from you iTunes in your comput to your iPad without downloading anything.

    I just got the 16gb and since I don't have to download music or videos I have plenty of room.
