    Finally got one. Open box at Best Buy so thankfully I can return it without the restocking fee.

    It is too heavy. I will buy the Kindle 3 now and maybe later buy a new iPad that has shed half its weight.

    Will return this next Friday. If anyone can tell me a way to hold this without your wrists falling off I would like to know. Having things under it makes the screen too flat and hard to see.

    My hopes are dashed. :confused: Thanks for listening.

    Well ~ perhaps the OP has arthritis or bad wrist bones. I remember when the ipad came out, I was at Best Buy and everyone was playing with them at the table.

    Most everyone would comment: " I didn't think it would be so heavy"

    I don't see it, personally ~ but if it doesn't work for you it doesn't work for you. Did you play with one before you bought yours?

    There are many ways to prop the ipad up while you cozy up on the couch, such as a case or many accessories.

    Sounds like you expected more ~ I am so sorry.:(

    I'm not talking about carrying it around. I am talking about reclining in a chair reading a book, the news or whatever.

    I don't see why it is heavy? You can read with it ( like a kindle) and do more with it draw, play, sing, type a document, edit a document, watch a movie, edit some photos and more .

    How can a kindle be compared to an iPad?

    It is not for every one frankly I find it perfect compared to an iBook which is real light laptop. Some peole want readers only and expect more I guess that is where the 7 inch form comes in.
