    Bought an iPad 64GB Wifi-only model Friday.
    Just want to use it around the house, not lug it around with me.

    Tech stuff I own:
    HDTV
    NAD receiver (very old-school)
    Dell Windows 7 PC with ATI 5870 graphics card, i920 processor
    Amazon Kindle (I got the Kindle app for the iPad, but my Kindle is easy to bring to work and I like it for strictly reading book purposes)
    iPod Classic (120-gig)
    Xbox 360 (250GB ... the shiny new black one!)
    Playstation 3 (the old-school, fat 60GB model that plays PS2 games natively)

    My primary reasons for buying an iPad:
    A) I fell for the hype, of course
    B) Sunday afternoons while watching NFL football, I just wanted a tablet for lounging on the couch, checking stats, etc...
    C) I am over 40, I wanted at least the 9.7-inch screen. Anything smaller is too small.
    D) I'd like to use the iPad as a music streamer to my home stereo - which is the reason I registered here.

    I bought an airport express yesterday, hooked it up to my home stereo, downloaded the remote app, and now control all of my iTunes music from my PC on my iPad.
