I have to agree with most here. I love my iPad. I'm on Verizon and I have the Palm Pre Plus and Verizon gives me 5GB of tethering data a month so usually at my desk I've got my iPad and my iPod Touch sitting next to each other, both tethered to my Palm. I absolutely do NOT regret getting one!!!

I'm happy with it, despite my criticisms of it/its design.
I recently had an accident that left me physically impaired and having the iPad has made it easier to do certain tasks that would've required my small, but too-
Also, my girlfriend, whom I've yet to "sell" on the iPad just took a flight that, while not directly FROM hell, quite likely passed through it. She had a six hour layover, not counting the many, MANY other obstacles that were in her path. Finding free, convenient wifi hotspots/strong signals and places to charge her phone was a pain.
If she had an iPad, the battery and 3G connection (not to mention calling apps like "Line 2") would have helped alleviate the stress and strain.
She agrees, but adds that its lack of multitasking might've made it less useful than one might have thought. Luckily, her Pre multitasks and the worst of the travel (to the destination, anyway) appears to be over.
So yeah, there are a number of reasons that I'm happy with the iPad. It fulfills a need, for sure, even if it has its toy-ish side and monotasks.

5 minutes later, after bringing it back inside, it was fine.
Point to remember, however, is that I could barely see what was on the screen while it was outside, to the point where it was unusable. It would have been better to just have a pocketed iPhone or iPod Touch, since it was just playing an audio stream anyway.

I wasn't going to buy one
Really, I told myself that I wouldn't fall for all the hype and buy one but I did. It really is a wonderful device if you understand why you should get it. I had a beautiful netbook to go along with my notebook/laptop but I found that I didn't use it much. I use the iPad a lot though.
I am still amazed that Apple was able to fit that much power in such a small device. I don't like the lack of a SD card slot and USB connector though.

It ROCKS! I find that I watch Netflix, ABC, CBS and Hulu a great deal. This was rather surprising because I really didn't think I would. I use it daily from gaming to handling business email, taking notes etc. The one thing that pains me though is the lack of support for Flash. I really wish Jobs and Company would get off these kicks. There are things that I do which unfortunately I am forced to move to a regular computer to do them because of this.
I think iPad 2 will be even better!

I've been watching reruns of Star Trek:The Next Generation and they are constantly showing an "iPad" as being the future information device. Theirs has a smaller screen and various input sections; I think the actually full touch screen iPad is nicer
P.S. The original Star Trek had an even bigger, clunkier, "iPad".

I had no intention of buying an iPad. I just wanted to see how long the pre-dawn line was for them, since I couldn't sleep. Then I didn't want to end up in the back and and not get a chance to check out the demos, so I stood in line. Then I realized that they might run out so I stopped playing with the demo and bought one so I could just return it if I needed to. I wasn't happy with wifi only so I got in line for a 3G, the next month.
