    Hi I'm Lindsey, I'm 26 years old, and I am an Apple fangirl who can not properly feed her addiction. I DO have an iPod classic but I've never had an iPhone (contract isn't up until APRIL; thanks Verizon) and definitely didn't get an iPad. This is due to finances - I'm a full time student (again) getting my teaching certificate without a paying job (student teachers don't make money, of course, but have to pay tuition). But I scraped enough money together to (barely) afford an iPad 2 and I am excited!! I plan on getting it next weekend, so I thought I'd get a username on here, look around for app and case suggestions and whatnot.

    Thanks! It's my reward to myself for losing a bunch of weight - 23 pounds as of today - since March. I haven't reached my goal yet but I'm one pants size away from doing it, and this is just to reward myself for my hard work. Plus, I sold my netbook and needed a replacement for school. And heck. I want one because they rule.

    Thank you. My main issue right now is which case to buy. I think I've decided on the SmartCover only because I do have a netbook case that WILL work (albeit, it's a little too big) for carrying it around in, and I wanted a microfiber protection for the cover when it's just sitting on my desk, table, etc. I also love the way it folds into a stand two ways (I know lots of other cases do this too, though). I wonder if at the Apple store they'll have Smart Covers you can test out before you buy?

    I CERTAINLY will! I'll be a posting maniac once I get it. I am so excited. I plan on getting it in 6 days... we'll see if I can wait that long!

    Hi Lindsay, I'm new too. I've been flicking through the forums here over the past day and there are so many good reviews of apps!

    Hi there! I'll definitely look around, but I think I'm going to get the smart cover and just stick with my former netbook sleeve for now. Might ask for a better case for Christmas though.

    I look forward to reading all of the app reviews so I'm prepared come Friday when I pick up my new toy.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    Hi Tim, and thanks! I am definitely going to poke around this forum to gather all the info I can before buying mine next week, and I'll be a regular on here after that!
