    Hi folks, I will be a iPad WiFi 64GB owner on or about 1 Jul. I have 16 apps downloaded and ready to sync with the iPad. Also have a cover ordered. I plan to mostly use my iPad to display photos and videos. I use my big Windows desktop for everything else. I have been using computers since 1960 from MainFrames to Minis to Micros to PCs to Macs to handheld whatever. Including the Newton [how many Mac folks remember the Newton?
    Cheers

    Welcome Mel. There's some good info here, and you are going to love your iPad.

    I remember the Newton very well, I worked for one of the companies that helped develop it.

    The iPad is better.

    Ouch those mainframes......and that first 286 the Power!

    The real computer revolution is that the screens are getting closer to compensate for poor eyesight. Love the iPad as the screen is always at the right distance.
