    What do you love most about your iPad? I love being able to read magazines and books as well as play games whilst surfing the net.

    And not one scratch!

    Oh.

    I also like to on occasion take it out of the case and every time I do that it feels brand new and I can't believe I even have one.

    Okay ~ That's it. :)

    What all of you above said. The two biggest aspects are the form factor and the battery run time.

    My favorite thing about my iPad is that I never again have to be bored no matter where I am, what I'm doing, where I'm going or who I'm waiting for. :)

    Everything! I especially love being able to lay on the sofa at night to surf the Internet and read without a hot laptop on my lap;)

    Definitely so! I'll never forget the nights when I was laying in bed, with the laptop on my lap, knees drawn up to support it, fiddling around with the power cord, adjusting the screen position and then feeling the heat from the laptop itself. I then started to use a lap "desk" (which is really nice and I still use it on occasion) but that required a sitting position of sorts and negated any hope of true flexibility in positional comfort. The iPad makes that possible. HUGE plus because I have an injured knee and I cannot remain in any one position for very long. Not to mention the weight difference! Now, as much as I love my laptop it just seems way too clunky and kludgy to use on a constant basis for all the casual, fun things I want to do in the places and positions I'm at throughout the day.

    Not having to constantly change the aspect ratio of pages. With my touch, I was always pinching & pulling & reading partial pages. With the pad, it's the perfect sized of web pages so I can read without all the scanning.

    The mobility of these devices is my overall favorite thing though. It's a book. It's a gaming system. It's a net browser. It's a note taker. A GPS. A cookbook.
    It goes everywhere & does everything.

    To start up in a second and doing what i want to do, any time of the day. With Windows I have to wait a couple of minutes before i can do something. Just checking something on the internet without having to wait is great. Also reminders and alarms which is not possible with Windows or you have to have the pc on all the time.

    Takes me
    where I want to go, when I want to go. And right now my destination is a fresh episode of Terra Nova, on the
    CityTv app.

    Love Maine Coon. Great cats. Very intelligent.

    I have two Maine Coon (twin sisters, both undergrown) and one Norwegian Forest Cat (hard to imagine he's only approaching one year old and he's already 22 lbs). Their pics below.

    This here sums it up for me. The portability and multitude of tasks that you can accomplish on it are terrific. :D
