Are you happy with your iPad?
Simple question.... after you vote be sure to post your reasoning no matter what you choose.
I voted yes simply because it has impressed me more than I ever expected it would. Then I thought that feeling may disappear but it hasn't. For basic functions such as browsing, games, eBooks, etc... it is a amazing device.

I'm VERY happy with my iPad! I primarily use it at home on the couch or in bed. Normally, I'd be on the couch or in bed with my MacBook which got annoying sometimes because of it's size (it's only a 13'') and the heat it produces. With the iPad, my entire lap isn't taken up and I can have my doggies hang out on my lap while I browse the internet, play games, read, and reply to emails. It's wonderful

Yep. Very happy. It matches what I expected to get out of such a device.
Well... almost. If Apple releases an extension for Aperture (library browsing and maintenance, perhaps) and Logic Pro (effects manipulation and possibly mix or transport control), then I'm all set.Ian

I love my new iPad simply because it is the fastest internet browsing machine I have ever owned. And then comes the rich supply of iPad Applications at my fingertips. Also, showing off pictures has never been more fun and exciting for others to see. I love it!

First, I am a Windows PC person.
My expectations were not outrageous. I wanted a back light to better read books and newspapers. Web, e-mail and calendar were next. Movies a close #3. The iPad does these very well, the device is built very well and very easy to use. It is NOT a replacement device for my phone or laptop. It is an incremental device. iPhone apps are what they are and OK for me. iPad apps are quite nice indeed.
If a comparable Windows device was ready, I would likely have gone for it. Having Microsoft Office Onenote would be the big difference as I use it daily.

Yes, definitely happy although I've only had it for about 3 hours! But very excited and love it already. Took me about 45 seconds to register with the NetFlix app and start streaming movies from my queue!iPad 2 WiFi 64 GB, Apple TV2, iPhone 4 32 GB

I am digging the iPad. Not digging how many fingerprints it collects, but at least you can't see them when the screen is lit. It is lightning quick and having already been an iPhone user, the UI seemed second nature to me. Can't wait until more iPad apps are released.
My wife is not so sold on it though. She can't open attachments in her Hotmail account and she wants Flash. We were going to sell our MacBook but maybe we'll just have to hold on to it. Oh darn.

I am really enjoying the device. Not necessarily an early adopter, I did go into this not quite knowing the full value of the device. With each passing day I discover things that don't work as well as I thought, but find new and interesting uses as well.
One big thing it has done is gotten me out of my computer room at home and out into the rest of the house. I'm discovering rooms I didn't even know were there.

I love it. I knew I wanted one eventually, but I really didn't think I was going to buy one on launch day. I told myself (and my wife) that I just wanted to get my hands on one and try it out, but once I was there I decided pretty quickly that I was taking one home. It was the first time I'd ever stood in line for any type of product launch. The whole experience was really fun and exciting - even more so than I thought it would be.
I'm super-happy that I decided to go ahead and get one. I've been completely blown away by the battery life (and now have big hopes that the next iPhone will be much better in this department). I really love the way I can interact with everything through the device - Twitter, Facebook, Internet, games. It really does feel like you're holding the web in your hands (or however Steve Jobs said it). The screen is responsive and beautiful. Pictures and videos look awesome on it. I'm much more of a consumer of media than a creator of it, and it suits my digital needs to a T.
One of the only things I don't like is that my iPhone now seems teeny-tiny after using the iPad. I was happy with the iPhone's screen before, but post-iPad I really feel like the next-gen iPhone needs a bigger screen!16GB iPhone 4 | 32GB WiFi iPad | 13" MacBook Pro

IPad - A game changer
There is nobody else that would have taken the chance on a niche product such as the IPad but Steve Job and Apple. Microsoft is just a shell of what they used to be. Google is trying to figure out if they are a software or hardware company. Dell? HP?
It has a fantastic screen, leading edge battery life, a keyboard that I am really impressed with, solid build quality, access to a world of talent via the app store, IBookstore, ITunes & things we haven't even thought of yet. This is a tool that will spur more innovation and competion. That's what we need. I bought 2 of these and we are still amazed at the things it can do for it's size. Yes, there are software issues that need to worked out. But that can be refined. These kinds of things don't come along everyday and I am glad I have an opportunity to be a part of it.
