    By popular demand we have added a dedicated ipad 1 forum. Please be free to post specific discussions that concern the original iPad only.

    iPad or iPad 1 was the original iPad before iPad 2 was released. We have called it ipad 1 to simplify the heading and to avoid confusion

    Plus we can post things we like more about the iPad1 --- like, no screen bleeding, more robust construction, stronger screen glass - nicer users....:D

    All right it's about time. Now I really feel that my iPad is outdated, first the new iOS eliminates Multi gestures and now we have our own space. Is it just me?

    Yeah you're right! What I love about my ipad1 is the feel of the device compared to the ipad2. I like the added weight and thickness, makes it feel a bit more sturdy. What about you folks?

    That is funny you say that! Just last night I took mine out of the case and thought the exact same thing. Why do folks want things thinner and thinner? I DO like the thickness and weight and I have played with the 2 a lot!

    I love my iPad! ( even when I get my ipad3 :) )

    You go guys, we are the misfits, the geeks, the... Okay, okay, we had faith in these things. Everyone around us said it wouldn't work but we took the plunge and they are the best things since sliced bread. Yeah, we are slower and heavier and have no multi gestures(grrr) but we love our paddys. I'm not missing having the iPad 2 but like you, Marie, that iPad 3 is looking mighty fine right now. Besides this ole iPad is going nowhere, it's a classic, an original and it's mine! Its staying in the family, no matter what!

    I spend hours I shouldn't on my iPad. I'm glad Apple has continued updating the software, because I need folders, but so far the iPad 2 has not caused me to go new. Maybe the 3 will! I have an Eye-Fi card in my camera, so for now don't need a camera on my iPad. I'm a long time computer user (from the 1960's) and have had only laptops (Mac and pc) for a while, but the original iPad is my obsession now.

    I haven't had my original a year yet. Before 2 came out you could find covers etc all over for them. Now the original seems to be forgotten when you go to the iPad accessories section. I realize that a person can go on line but guess we have become almost antiques. I still love my pad

    Oh, hell, yeah! I got this one for my birthday last year. Today in fact! 45 years young! That's me! I love it more than I did. It was like an early Xmas present waiting for that postman to arrive! I still remember it clearly now! It's definitely my favourite all time present ever! Hubby gave it to me! I love him!

    I got my case at Tuesday Morning and I've seen some at Bed Bath and Beyond. Maybe other non-electronics dealers have 1s as well.
