Thanks everyone! Sorry, I never noticed I got any response here, lol. I totally got lucky.. had I not been picked (was a Zagg giveaway) it would have likely been ages before I could have afforded one. Was excited! When they first came out I didn't give them much thought.. said they were just big iPod Touches.. I misjudged them quite unfairly, lol.

I think a lot of people misjudged the iPad, including myself! I was horrified to hear that it would be running the iPhone/iPod touch operating system. I wanted something that ran the full OS X, more like a cheap Modbook. As I heard live blogs of the keynote, and later watched the video, I started turning around on my opion. As I heard more of what the iPad could do I was sold!!

I'd still like for iOS to become more like OS X instead of it being the other way around, but I love my iPad to death!! The only major changes I think it must have is an user accessible file system, and an easy & universally available way to wirelessly print!! Wireless syncing would be cool too!

They are just big iPod Touches… Sorta…

The experience is totally different… Which Is why I bought one… And now I can Play X-Plane on a large screen without booting my Mac!
