It's feels awesomePosted .I would recommend this to a friend
Since I actually own one, unlike another "reviewer", let me tell you that if you are considering and iPad, you need to first figure out what you will be using it for. I wanted the experience I get with my iPhone in a bigger package, and that's what I got, plus a few extra perks. Every since the iPhone came out, people have realized that the basic UI on it was dead on target. Sure it had it's drawbacks at first, but it has progressively gotten better, but even with it's shortcomings, the UI itself was a winner. It's easy to use and makes it easy to find what you need quickly. The way you interact with the hardware and software is simple, yet also very rewarding. I use my iPad mainly to surf the web and play time killing games and as a media player. If you're looking to build a spreadsheet or create a presentation, then this tool is not for you. This product will not be a replacement for a notebook, netbook, or a desktop and it's not meant to be. It's like comparing a pickup truck to a sedan. You can't haul something in a sedan because it's not designed for that purpose. When you pick up the iPad, something about it just feels right. It's familiarity begs the question why it took so long for a manufacturer to get this far. It has incredible battery life. I used my iPad off and on for over 24 hours. The 1ghz processor is paired with the same GPU used in both the iPod touch and the 3GS and this pairing is solid. It blazes through tasks without a hiccup or lag. There are a couple things that will irk some people, like the usage of iTunes (however if you're buying an iPad, you probably already use iTunes for your other "i" products), the lack of Flash support (some may argue HTML5 will solve this issue, however by the time HTML5 is widespread enough to negate this issue, your iPad will probably be 5 or 6 generations old), and the lack of a front facing camera (the iPad will be a perfect tool for iChat... in it's next iteration of course). Like I said before, you need to figure out where the iPad will fit in your life before making the purchase. Are you an iPhone user that seems to browse more on your phone than your actual computer? Do you travel often and hate watching videos on a 3 inch screen?Do you enjoy playing "mini games"? Do you have $499.99 to spend on something that fits kind of in between two capable devices, but one is too big and the other is too small? In the end I think this product is easily a 4/5. It's not perfect by any means, but if you're in the market for a device of this nature, the iPad is a great choice. I can't wait to see more products of this form factor!

Amazing and more!Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
Ok. Right when I saw the iPad I knew they were going to be good, and knew I wanted one. But honestly I am not a 1st gen buyer and was hesitant to get it. But I am really glad I did. The iPad is great, and can do just about anything you want, even replace your laptop for on the go things. Some people complain about the touch screen keyboard, and yes its touch, so it’s not going to be the best, but I have typed notes and emails on there for over 30 mins and have not had a problem. But I am going to break it down in different sections. The Good. Basically it’s an iPhone, or iPod touch on steroids. So if you already like that then you will love this. With the app store at your fingers, and the ability to download straight to your computer, there are literally thousands upon thousands of different apps to choose from. On my home screen I have the standard apple apps, with a few extras. Then I have another section dedicated to games then another one with all the rest. The games on the iPad are really amazing. The multiplayer games, such as multipong, have been great fun to play with my family and look so crisp. Now I know people say well it’s not all about the apps, but they add to it. Connecting to WiFi is so easy, and I have been 2 stories (router in basement) away and though its 1 or 2 bars it still gets great connectivity and never goes out on me. It’s also great for the Microsoft Outlook users like myself, to sync calendar and contacts, that way I don’t have to mess with trying to pull it up on my tiny phone (which takes forever…) Safari, though I don’t use it on my computer has been a great internet experience. The screen is nice, big and the multi touch zoom is great for viewing web pages. Email is also great. Took me a bit to get used to but just takes some messing with to get the hang of it. (Though in the new OS in the fall, which will make all your inboxes into one, will be a lot easier). And battery life! The battery last incredibly long. 1st day I bought it, without charging it or anything, I played for a constant 5 hours, full brightness, wifi connected etc, and was at 52%, so the advertising about 10hrs of battery life… its dead on, which is pretty amazing. But I think the thing I like best about it is that its instant on! I mean no sitting there waiting 5 mins for you computer to boot up, its there, grab it and go. There are many more features that I have not had time to try either. Bluetooth connectivity, and VGA output are two I really care about. The Bad. Flash. Now what I mainly bought it was for studying on the go. However, the website I use has flash, and so most of it will not load, so this really made me mad. There are tons of websites that use flash and some are solely made out of flash, so apples reasoning behind not making it flash friendly, I’ll never understand. It has its quirks and has closed down my inboxes while opening mail here and there, but it is 1st gen and it doesn’t happen a lot, nothing to really annoy me. Now many are mad about the multitasking, but when they release the OS 4 in fall it will fix that so I'm pretty sure we can all wait. Overall, I would recommend the iPad to anyone! It’s an amazing device and there are many different uses for it. On the go email, surfing the web, casual game play, movies, writing documents, you name it. And by the way… I don’t understand why people complain about how heavy it is… it weighs in at a whopping 1.5 lbs… if that’s heavy go work out, get some muscles. I’ve held it for extended amounts of time and had no problems. When you think about it, you are holding a computer in your hands! My laptop is a rock! And if it’s really hard to hold, just set it in your lap or rest it on a desk.

So SoPosted .No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I read a few of the reviews on here which was really a mixed bag, so I decided to go get one for myself and see what the real deal was. First the positives : Awesome device, the Ipad is very well designed, it is eye catching and it definitely has that wow factor. If what you want is a device to surf the web on the go, then this is a great tool for that. It is light, portable and the touch screen is awesome for fast scolling, page zoom etc. It really enhances the web viewing experience It is awesome for netflix, I downloaded the free netflix app and the movie watching experience was awesome Touch screen is very intuitive and the virtual keyboard is close to perfect Cons After about 18 hours with this device, I started to question whether I really needed it. Yes, it's awesome for web surfing on the couch or in the bedroom but it has very utility beyond that, to a great extent, the web browsing capabilities are limited due to lack of flash support Lack of flash support - this in my opinion is a major blunder, why in the world would you limit such a wonderful device by not supporting flash, that just ruined the whole experience for me. This is one of my main gripes about apple products, they tend to shift the choice away from the consumer to the box they want you to fit in (aol anyone). No camera, so no skyping, video chat etc; geez, this device is supposed to be a netbook killer !- a huge fail on that front No attachment support. This was really the deal breaker for me, I was willing to deal with the lack of flash (later OS releases could fix that), camera and even the crazy requirment to connect to itunes before turning on the device for the first time, but why not support uploading attachments to an email. my blackberry does that, any netbook would do that, this was just too much and I decided to return the Ipad. I tried desperatel y to love it, but in the end , I realised its nothing but a novelty and I could see it gathering dust next to my portable XM player..lol Conclusion Revolutionary device no doubt in terms of concept and physical design, it definitely will shake up the market. However unless you're looking for a toy or a glorified bigger screen Ipod touch, wait for something better to come our before spending this amount of money

Great tool, depending on your purpose!Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
Ive had the iPad for about a week now and it is the best purchase Ive made in a long time. I mainly use it for Fantasy Football/Internet useage, but it can do ALOT more! You can download books at the blink of an eye and the games are a great for trips. I have an HP laptop, which is good in its own right, but all I used it for was the internet and email. I wanted something lighter and something that wasnt slow. The iPad is very user friendly and it took me 10min to get use to it. Screen is very clear and its lightning fast. Screen smudges a bit but that is no biggie. I wouldnt buy it to replace your laptop (depending on what you use your laptop for) but this is great for Emailing, Browsing and Reading. Battery last very long and I charge it every couple of days when Im not home.

iPad Does.. Almost EverythingPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
Before I bought the iPad I went back and forth from best buy at least 5 times, and every time I left scratching my head. I'm a college student with a major in political science and I wanted something that: kept me up to date on current issues, Kept me organized, Allowed me to type essays, & had a great portability aspect. All of my desires were met by the iPad. The news apps for this device are phenomenal, I'm now able to type on the on screen keyboard (with practice) very quickly, and the app pages makes typing essays almost fun. The planner apps are great and always keep me on top of assignments and meetings, the portability and start up of the device is easy. It's nice to share facts with my class in an instant on such a large screen. Now for the cons: -Why is there no camera? (common sense apple) -Why no USB port? (or at least a device to convert the apple Jack into one) -The price. (way to expensive for the lack of features) -The after market price. (you'll need to budget in an extra 100 dollars to make the device suitable for your needs) Side notes: Even though the device doesn't support flash I still seem to get by. Very entertaining! Does not replace regular computer, yet i don't use my laptop anymore. *I suggest that if you want a tablet, by this point you should wait for the second generation to come out. It should be very soon and we should be seeing all those common sense features included. Also, question yourself; "what would I use an iPad for?" Hope this was helpful.

Best Apple product I've own:DPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
I've had my iPad for about three week now, and I'm still impressed by what it can do. I manly wanted to you this for web surfing, apps, YouTube, iBooks, and music. And it does those perfectly:D Web surfing is fast. Wi-Fi is really good on some places and not so good in others. But that's not the iPad's fault. Pages are clear and crisp, and easy to read text. Overall web surfing is fantastic(: I love that there are tons of free apps to download. I love the Twitterific app. I tweet so much more now. And I also find using facebook more fun on iPad. Ive only had this device for three weeks, I don't have that many apps, but they run awesome. None of them have crashed. Love the apps and I will be getting more(: I love the built in YouTube app. It's easy to get too. And I watch a lot more YouTube videos on my iPad. The picture is so clear and crisp. The sound is awesome. And even better with headphones. And I love on landscape mode the picture fill the entire screen, by it self. I love this app. I love when you first open the app store on the iPad, it asks you for a iBook app. Glad I downloaded it. I found out that I read a lot more on my iPad. Love that you can get a FREE sample of the book, to see if you like it(: fantastic app, I love it My music experience was amazing on here. I love that you can surf the web, read books on iBooks, all while listening to music. Absolutely fabulous. My only small complaint is that it doesn't have a front facing camera, if it did I would also use it for iChat too. Maybe in the next model It will. Who knows(: To end on a good note, I love the keyboard. This entire review was typed on my iPad. I love the big buttons. Fantastic job apple. Thanks for making my first apple product fun and easy to use. I am a user for life now(:

Not amzing, not bad either, but just okPosted .No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I just read a review where someone was complaining that people who don't own an Ipad shouldn't give it bad reviews. Another complained and said that if you bought an Ipad, you shouldn't give it a bad review. I had to laugh because I guess it doesn't matter whether you own one or not, according to them you just shouldn't give it a bad review. Well for the record, I don't own an Ipad. But I have tried one exclusively for two weeks, and let me tell you that is more than enough time to get a feel for the product. It actually belonged to my cousin who is always buying the newest type of gadgets. He went out of town and I was surprised that he wasn't taking this with him. So he gave it to me to test out. After trying it for two weeks, I came to the conclusion that it is okay, but I won't buy it. Most of the complaints are pretty legit. I won't go into all that much detail about them, because they are already in other reviews, but there is a reason that people that give bad reviews all complain about the same things. Pretty much about what it is missing and the fact that it is an over-sized version of an Iphone or Ipod. And it REALLY is like an oversize Iphone or Ipod. To those who say it is not, I want to ask who they think they are kidding? Now just so you know, I like both of those products(Iphone and Ipod), I think they are great. But just repackaging and making it bigger doesn't make it better. Actually, I would prefer it if it was smaller, like an Ipod, for the portability. But that would make it an Ipod. :) Now there was also a game that I tried out on there and to play it you used a virtual controller. To go up you press up on the virtual controller, etc. After about 2 minutes I wished I had a REAL controller, the virtual controller was awkward. So overall it is ok, but there were definitely times when I was using it that I wished I had my laptop or even my desktop, and there were also other times when I wished that this was an Ipod. Someone wrote a review where they said it was great if you use it for the intended purpose, and I ask, what is the intended purpose then? My answer is that its purpose is whatever I want to use it for and that truthfully there are some devices that do certain things better. This is not the device to rule them all and replace everything else. I still use other devices quite frequently, although in my two week test period I tried to keep other device use to a minimum. I have noticed there are two extremes for reviews on here. I think there are some hardcore Apple fans who will give it five stars NO MATTER WHAT is wrong or missing, and I don't think that is accurate for this device. But neither is it accurate for the other extreme of one star. It is okay after all, but not as amazing as some of the hype that some people give it. If you are not on the extreme side one way or the other, then truthfully this product probably deserves about a 3. If you are on the fence about getting this I guess you ask to yourself why you need this before you get it. And for me, I don't need it. I am guessing that a lot of other people will find they don't need it either, and I know more than a couple who don' t WANT one. (I know MIND BLOWING to Hardcore apple fans) But over all I think it is alright, so I give it three stars, but I don't recommend it. But I also recommend that you do your own research on the matter and don't just listen to some of these reviews that are extremely biased one way or another.

Best Tablet on the MarketPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
When I got the iPad as a birthday gift, I was stunned. I wanted it for so long. But I was a little apprehensive about it. I was afraid that now that I got the iPad it wouldn't be as cool as I thought. In short, I thought its novelty would wear off quickly. It hasn't. I've had the iPad for about two weeks now and I've had to charge it twice! That's the most impressive life I've seen in a gadget, surpassed only by my Nook (which gets the best battery life of any electronic gadget, I think). Instead of trying to understand how great the iPad is thru overarching generalizations, I'll use app-specific examples so you can get a "feel" for the iPad. NETFLIX: This may be my favorite app. It's big and almost HD! I say almost because I don't believe that netflix streams High Definition thru their app, but the big iPad screen and great color spectrum it has along with its high pixel count, makes it nearly HD. It's the best way I can experience Netflix on the go. PAGES: This is probably the funnest (or most fun, if you will) word processor I've ever used. I agree with a previous student reviewer that it makes writing essays fun. The touch screen and screen rotation helps to keep things interesting. The touch screen really helps to keep the whole essay writing, or whatever writing experience interesting. GQ: If I hadn't been previously sold to an iPad, this app alone may have brought me to the checkout line. It makes a magazine look absolutely lust worthy. Horizontal orientation, you can "flip" thru the "print" magazine. When you decided on an article that piques your interest, turn it Vertical and it becomes a scroll down page with the article. Nifty! Twitter: This is arguably much better than the site itself. I had the most fun using this Twitter app. It's big enough to open a link on a tweet and still read other tweets AND write your own tweet on the top of the screen! Email: It's a breeze. A lot like the Twitter app. I could go on and on. I'm a news junkie and following the news is not only easy, it's absolutely aesthetically pleasing. It's superb eye candy no matter what I'm doing. All I can say, however, is that if I haven't convinced you, it's because the iPad doesn't translate into paper well. The magic of it gets lost in explanation, like a good joke. The magic lies in the touch screen, it changes the entire computing experience. Even the usual bore, such as essay writing, becomes compelling. You have to experience it for yourself. If it doesn't win you over instantly, it's not for you. It's that simple.
