Stood in line for 2 hours on launch day, and got the 16GB Black WiFi. Very impressed and happy with it so far, but the cameras are of mediocre quality.

Too bad Newgrounds is pro-Apple. Here's what I mean:

They'll soon regret it when Apple adds more artificial flavours to their updates; unlike Google adding natural flavours.

too expensive for their capability, feels like I would be paying more for the brand name rather than what it actually does.

I have the Ipad 1, and I'm certainly not an Apple Fanboy by any stretch, but I have to say it's a very nice tablet and if I could update to the Ipad 2 for say $200 then I'd do it.

One thing Apple has going for it are the over 65,000 Apps and counting and a lot of them are very good, including some of the games.

I'd have to play with the Xoom or the new Asus EP121, to compare, but I do know that I wouldn't touch any of the android tablets as that OS seems kinda old and crappy to me.

My eyes are dead set in getting an AMD Fusion Wichita-based tablet next year.

HTPC: AMD Athlon X2 4050e CPU with 780G ATX motherboard running Windows 8 DP (4GB) and Ubuntu; Server: AMD AII X2 240e CPU with 880G-based ATX motherboard running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (8GB)

2 pairs of Insignia NS-B2111s (front/rear), Pioneer SP-C21 Center Speaker, and 12" Velodyne Sub

Just ordered HP Pavilion dv7-6165us from QVC. Will have it by next Friday.

I HAD and Ipad, the first one, I had to RMA 4 times . . . Ended up getting my money back and just got a new TV, That was the first and last time I try an apple product, when it did work, I still think it was a waste of $500 at most those things should be priced at $200 new and that's with 64gb of memory, the hipe was more then 20 times overkill if you ask me, a Xoom on the other hand . . . I might get one of those, then there is the ASUS Eee Slate EP121, that one I'm really interested in.

Then it would appear, Ipad 2 have a very common issue with back light leaking . . . Just stay away, get either a Xoom or the ASUS Eee Slate EP121 instead.

Battery Life on 2 hasn't really improved over the first one so no for me. I've done some testing of future products and let me tell you that this thing will be soon as outdated as the first one is already. I can't reveal any specific details only that a some of the competitors have even more impressive devices soon to hit the market.

I would rather hit myself with a blunt object then ever own a mac device. Personally I also can't wait till ipads become the biggest interest for virus developers so mac users will finally shut up about how macs never get viruses.

Nope, and I never will be getting one too. I am so sick with Apples obsession with the color "WHITE" in their electronics, and for their obsession with the letter "I"

Apple thinks they can come down here and take over the electronics industry just cause they were the first to create the Ipod back in 2000.

What a lot of people don't realize is, that you can buy products just like this from other companies for half the price!

this is EXACTLY why I HATE HATE HATE apple. They think they are all that and a bag of chips when in reality they really arent.
Oh look we sold a lot of product we must be making quality products.. WRONG!

You should really wait for the iPad 3.

No and I'm not getting one, because it's worthless and like for most of the people, it's a piece of shit... Sorry about that, but it's true...

Well.. You can buy the new Wifi iPad 2 and get 3G with the new 3G hot spot for the iPhone. So if you have an iPhone 4 you can get a wifi iPad and still get 3G :) Anyways.. Good go there Rodney. At least you're trying to look at Apple's products in stead of SOME people here who HATE it because it's too expencive..

I however have a smaller iPad.. the iPod which is godsent.. It's absolutely AWESOME. And i'm not a mac user btw :P

Interesting to see you pick up an interest on these portable devices.

I look forward to hear your impression on the Motorola Xoom, HTC Flyer and other Android tablet too.

Nah, i don't see the point of it myself, it's just a over-sized iphone. And i like the blackberry tab a lot more, even if it is from blackberry it still looked nice from CES, or i would probably just get a laptop

Don't see the point personally. I have an ipod and smart phone for everyday/pocket use, a laptop for uni and portable computing, a HTPC and a gaming PC... I don't see where an ipad would fit in there other than novelty factor.

Gaming PC: i7 930@4Ghz, Noctua NH-U12P SE2, ASUS P6X58D-E, 2x Sapphire 2GB HD6970s in Crossfire, 12GB 1600Mhz G.Skill Ripjaws, 160GB OCZ Vertex 2 SSD, 3x Samsung 1TB F3, 1x Samsung 2TB F4, Corsair 650D, Corsair AX-850.

I have absolutely no use for an over-hyped, over-priced tablet that costs the same as a laptop but can't do half the things.

I was waited in line for 3 hours at Temecula Apple Store, after 7:30 p.m. announce it sold out!!! :( So I ordered with backorder(2 weeks wait) at MacConnection.com. free shipping + no tax charge in CA. It's awesome deal! I personally do not have iPad 1, was waiting for 2nd version. And promised to myself if iPad 2 comes out will get one for sure. I have iPhone 3gs, I think that's the reason I want a iPad badly :)

It seems like a good time to pick up the 1st gen iPad since Apple has slashed the prices on all the models by 100 bucks. I actually recently picked up a 64GB iPod Touch 4G and it really shines when you jailbreak it. Unfortunately there is no public jailbreak available yet for the newest 4.3 firmware so I am rocking 4.2.1 with the jailbreak.

As far as tablets go, I haven't tried the iPad but the Motorola Xoom and BlackBerry PlayBook seem more appealing.

If the Ipad 2 is anything like Ipad 1 (which it is) it will make a lot of people very happy :) The price will throw a lot of people off though, especially the higher capacity 3G models. The Ipad 2 16GB wifi black model is very temping though :)

On a side note, after having spent a little time with the Ipad 1 I'm impressed, and that's coming from a hardcore PC/Android guy ;) lol
