Hello, everyone! I am brand new here...just wanted to introduce myself to the forums. I have been married for 32 years, Mom to eight children (all grown) & Grandma to one (so far). My life is quite full, as I am a freelance Artist & I also love to read & garden. The family keeps me quite busy, of course ~ even tho' they are all old enough to butter their own bread it seems that a Mom's work is never done! But I love it...... I don't actually own an iPad yet, but I plan to very soon. I am looking for a second computer for myself that is small *very portable*, with all the features for which Apple is famous, and affordable. This one seems to fit the bill very nicely ~ and any information you could share would be very helpful. I have heard that it is alot like the iPhone & I have seen that in action so I know somewhat of what to expect...but family members have Apple laptops & tell me all the time how great this company is, how advanced they are in manufacture & technology, and after watching the demo video @ the website I cannot wait to get my hands on one!!
