Who has an I pad?

I've been researching the different tablets for awhile and went with the I pad. An obvious choice because I use a MacBook but the samsung galaxy looked interesting. I should have got it sooner because I really like it. I can do everything on the I pad that I do on the laptop. I don't even use the laptop anymore, the I pad is lighter and more comfortable on my lap. It actually does some things faster and easier. The I pad and my subaru legacy are two things that have exceeded my expectations. It's so nice when that happens.

I have an iPad1 (on it now) . . .and plan to upgrade to iPad3 when it comes out (announcement expected Mar.7)

I've been a Mac user since 1989 and absolutely LOVE Apple's products. My iPad fits in my purse and I always have it with me. Can't remember the last time I bought a hardcover book . . .i down load all my books from either iBooks or use the Kindle or Nook apps.

My only criticism of iPad is auto correct . . .sometimes, I go back in a thread and my posts make absolutely no sense because of words being auto changed . I could turn it off, but it's a handy feature when it works LOL

I got the IPAD2 for Xmas and I am IN LOVE!!! I have never had a Mac, but found it quite easy to use. I have the 3G so I am able to use the internet anywhere I am. It is one of my favorite gifts ever!

I ordered my iPad 1 before they came out. It has been with me daily ever since. In fact, it "talked" me into converting to Macs all around. I now use a Mac on my desk top and have a Mac lap top and an iPhone too.

I've looked at the other tablets just out of curiosity, and the ONLY other one I'd consider would be the Samsung Galaxy. It's the only one that has a screen then can even begin to compete with the iPad. When I'm ready for a new tablet, (so far, I don't feel any need to upgrade, Apple has done a miserable job with the camera on the iPad 2, and it's not THAT much faster than my iPad 1) I'll check out the Samsung again, but I'll probably stick with the iPad just because it works so seamlessly with my other Apple machines.

Oh, and I turned off autocorrect. I am more accurate than it is!

I have an Ipad 1 as well and had the same issue with the auto correct until my son showed me how to turn it off. Just go to settings - general - keyboard and turn auto correct off.
So much nicer without auto correct. I love my I pad!!!

I have an iPad too, actually I bought it for my husband for Chrstmas the year before last but I use it ALL the time. I think I'm going to get myself an iPad in the near future because I really like having a camera and ours doesn't. I have an iPhone and MacBook and I've synced them all together couldn't live without either one. iPad is great in the kitchen for recipes too, just don't get it wet!

DH has an Ipad 1 that he loves. He can devour the NY Times everyday. He downloads it and uses it every time he has to wait for me when he picks me up from some place. He also like it because with the new Icloud we can transfer all our photos from computer to Ipad to my Iphone. I find my Iphone does what I need so far.

I have an IPad1 and love it! Just wish E Books were cheaper. I miss my used book store prices. Since I'm now confined in the kitchen with Cooper I also love my MacBook Air. I am addicted to Apple products

I'm planning on getting an iPad as soon as the new version comes out, rumored to be early March. When I went to the Apple store, the girl suggested I get an iMac instead of the Mac Book Pro as my next computer. I work with graphics a lot and the screen on the the iMac blew me away. I think it is the right way to go, unless someone can tell me why it's not.
