    My name is Robert. I've been trolling the forums for about a week trying to get some of you "Subject Matter Experts" views on the iPad and related items. I say that I'm PRE-NEW to the iPad because I am purchasing mine next week.

    Reason for getting an iPad: I am 6'4" tall. I'm a gaming/movie geek. I travel all of the time for my job. I'm literally on a plane 2-4 times a week. I've found that my iPhone is too small to watch movies on the plane, I want something bigger. My 17.2" gaming laptop is too heavy and too big to fit in my lap comfortably on the plane. Having the iPad will give me that mobility that I want for my library of movies. I will also be able to add cheesey games to kill time. The other thing that I like about the iPad is the quick access to browse the internet or check my corporate email.

    I am also a tinkerer, so I will be looking to jailbreak the iPad and see what I can make it do. Of course, I will be getting one that cannot be jailbroken yet, but I'm sure there will be a jailbreak eventually, or once they update to 4.0 OS.

    Thanks for having me.
