A little thing called the Apple iPad came out this weekend, and I immediately did my part to help Apple stock with the purchase of the 16GB Wi-Fi model. Already the owner of a MacBook Pro and an iPhone, I somehow convinced myself that the iPad would be useful. After using it for several hours, I am still convinced.



For me, the main purposes of the iPad will be to casually browse web sites, watch movies, and read books -- on the couch, on an airplane, in some random coffee house. It is for times when the iPhone is simply too small and the MacBook Pro too bulky. When the iPad is not in use, prop it on the desk for a great photo slideshow viewer and quick dashboard for local weather and breaking news.



Surprising uses: Today, my family passed around the takeout menu for a local restaurant, my niece read me a Dr. Suess book and drew me a picture, and I just wrote this entire review -- all on the iPad.   





The best iPad apps I have found are: iBooks, USA TODAY, The New York Times, AccuWeather, Epicurious, Pandora, 1Password, ForeFlight, Labyrinth 2 HD, Sudoku HD, and native Apple apps such as Videos, Notes, and Calendar. 

And with a jailbroken iPhone and MyWi, it is easy to connect the iPad to the iPhone (using Wi-Fi or USB) and have instant internet access. This negates any need for the [upcoming] 3G version of the iPad.



Is the iPad a necessity? No.  Is the iPad a tasty technological treat? Absolutely!

Yes I know iPods and iPhones were very popular and iPads are probably going to be popular too but that does not mean I will ever like any of them. The only reason I even have an Apple iPad now is for work. I hate touch screen anything. After just getting a short demo on how to use the iPad from the guy who was giving it to me there were so many smudge marks all over the screen that I knew I would not like it. I rather use a keyboard or a mouse, I do not want to have to put my hands all over my screen. If the company wants me to use this thing they better buy me some cleaner for it because it needed to be cleaned after only one use. It is way to simple for me. I like a challenge and this thing was to easy to use, I guess that is what makes it popular with others. It will get the work done they are asking me to do with it but I could never see myself going out and buying one of these for personal use. I don't do emagazines or song or video downloads so it seems like a waste of money. At least it was the companys money and not mine.

                Amazing tablet

                By 

                from USA

                Comments about Apple iPad with Wi-Fi:

                I completely love my Ipad tablet. I use it for everything. Music, games, internet

                Battery Life
                The battery lasts quite a bit longer than the Ipod touch but I still wish it lasted longer. When i want to play my games it takes a bunch of battery power. The plus side is that I can plug it in and charge it super fast.

                Processing Speed
                Everything runs really fast depending on your Wi-Fi connection. At home on my wi-fi my Ipad runs super fast.

                Weight
                I love how light this product is. Its fits in my bag perfectly and is super easy to carry. Wont tire out your arms if you have to carry it that way

                App Availability
                THERE ARE SO MANY APPS. Way to many to choose from and I am always finding something new to play with on my Ipad

                Design
                The design is nice. Its super sleek and thin and you can do so much to make it your own. I change my background all the time and put stickers all over my case and just have fun with it

                Durability
                With the right case the Ipad can survive anything. I drop mine all the time but it has a good case on it so it has not suffered any injuries just yet

                Comments about Apple iPad with Wi-Fi:

                I love my Apple iPad. I love the ease of use, leight weight and versatility. I wasn't convinced it was a good investment but now I know I couldn't survive without it.

                Battery Life
                For my nights and weekend use, I usually only have to charge once a week if not less frequently.

                Processing Speed
                Everything loads super quick and it restarts in no time.

                Weight
                While its definitely not as light as the newer models, its so uh lighter than my old laptop.

                App Availability
                I've been able to download every app I wanted.

                Design
                Very straight forward and easy to use.

                Durability
                It has lasted me four years and it's still going strong. I don't really see a need to upgrade to the newer versions when this one works so well.
