Today, I bought my very first iPad at Best Buy (1st gen) and I can honestly tell you that I love love love it! I don't understand why everyone wants the newest and greatest IPad (I was one of them).

After a week of scouraging stores to find the newest model I decided to just come down and buy the 1st gen. Maybe because they have the offset of wanting what's the newest or because they simply can, I love my iPad. It's a great device for an apple starter Like myself. I don't need a camera or a fast processor so don't think I'll worry about getting the second one anytime soon.

Plus the first gens are cheaper (what's to go wrong!?)

Lol, /rant

Hey, congratulations! You're going to love it even more with time - mine hasn't been farther than 10 feet away in almost a year.

Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

You made a great decision - I have an iPad1 and it's --- awesome----

Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

Have fun and enjoy your iPad


If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free from


http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/...User_Guide.pdf

Also the iPad2 manual is available at http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/ipad_2_user_guide.pdf

It’s free too.

I also just got an iPad 1st gen. In fact, I bought a 16gb wifi only model from walmart - only place I could find one. Brought it back today. Don't know how many people have heard, but AT&T is discounting all their 3G 1st gen iPads. Got one there for only $30 more than I had paid for the wifi only model. No brainer decision.

I had to hunt in downtown to get my copy of Gran Turismo 5.

Congratulations. Great decision. I recently sold ipad 1 not because I did not want it only because I always upgrade Apple products like the ipad as it is my main computer (replaces my laptop day to day) in house and what is amazing they hold resale value. Cost of ownership is low it is an awesome fun device so enjoy
