I do apologize if this seems like a redundant question. In light of the fourth-generation model being released recently, who among us is still considering on sticking with their original iPad? I am, for one. While my case is a little different as I only purchased it a few months ago I still find it to be a very usable device. As a laptop supplement(and not replacement) it works wonders. I'm still getting great battery life, it's an excellent casual Web browser and e-reader, and I can do light word processing and watch videos in my spare time. Even though the original iPad is definitely well removed from the latest and greatest it still works well enough to suit my needs. I'll be hanging onto this one for a little while.
