    Sorry. I introduced myself in the wrong thread. So will start again here.

    Hi to all. I'm Mike.
    I am seriously considering getting myself an iPad2 for Christmas. Probably a 32gb with 3g.
    I am now retired, but have several outside hobbies (bird watching, train & plane spotting) & am wondering about the convenience of an iPad as a database & electronic notebook. Does anyone else use one as a storage medium for their hobbies?

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    You can use the iPad for any type of storage, I have my library of hard cover books in mine, I also dabble in Art and have quite a collection stored here too. The size of the screen would be perfect for displaying photos and illustrations of your hobbies. Others will chime in here I'm sure.

    Hello & many thanks for your reply. A quick change of mind about the Christmas present though. Christmas will be expensive enough without the indulgence of an iPad2, so, since there appears to be the distinct possibility of a new kid on the block early next year. I think I might just wait for that.

    What a shame that you won't have it for Christmas but that time of year is so very expensive. Yes the new one will probably appear early April. I really do hope you will be able to get one then and you are going to just love it! :)
