I feel like a weight has been lifted...almost. I was reading iPad reviews and was about to buy one when I heard that the Xoom was coming so I waited (which felt like forever) to read those reviews. When it came time to pull the trigger out comes the wait for the iPad 2...so pad-less is where I have remained. This forum has been GREAT in helping me decide, along with the Xoom forum. I'm getting the iPad 2 3g/WiFi Black. YAY! One of the websites I need to be able to access, materialogic, will only run on IE though? I'm still in my 'researching' phase on this trying to find out what I need to do/install to be able to run that site fully. Thanks for all the great insight on what the iPad is all about. I've never been an Apple fan AT ALL but having a nice, reliable, functioning product that works FOR ME is what it's all about in the end.
