I ordered a new I-pad 3 on Wednesday and hope to receive it on the 16th. This is my first intro to Apple with the exception of I-pods. I have been pretty stuck on Windows and my phone is an Android. But, now that Apple and dare I say Microsoft are making some to the Office tools available ... I will take the plunge! The I-pad is certainly much easier to carry than even my Asus laptop, which weighs in under 5 pounds, but still feels like a lead weight walking through an airport.
