I would love to win an iPad to give to my wife as a xmas gift. She is in school and her Sony Vaio Laptop went belly up. We were looking at replacements but with 4 kids money is sort of tight, especially this time of year!
iPad could be an awesome productivity tool to replace her laptop, just what she needs. Lightweight and versatile!

I would love to be able to get one of these great iPad gifts. My brother is up in New York recovering from cancer treatment and I know that he becomes very bored during the long days in the hospital.
It would be great to be able to give him something he can use and love from his little brother.
Good luck to all of those who enter the contest!

I need an ipad!
My name is Natalie and I am a college student. I am in my last semester of college before I do my student teaching to become a certified teacher. My professors decided that for our next semester we need an ipad instead of text books. I am looking forward to using technology in my classroom, but I am broke. I go to a private college that already costs a lot of money and my school is not going to help me out with the cost of the ipad. This would be a great thing if I didn't have the financial burden of having to buy an ipad on my own. Please let me win!

I'm still lovin' my iphone 3G (though I'm looking forward to an upgrade someday). My husband, however, uses his dinosaur laptop (it's even missing the Q key) to do most of his daily news reading--it's so sad. But still, I have to drag him kicking and screaming into this century sooner or later...

The Apple sticker on my car window is far too small for other drivers to spot. I need a bigger Apple to let the other drivers know who's boss. If it so happens that an iPad is shipped along with the stickers, then who am I to complain.

I never considered an iPad until someone new came into my life. Her son has autism (high functional, but still has his moments) and I feel this is the best thing I can do for her and her child. As grumpy as I may be at times on here.....I care about her. Anyways, I hear this device is great for those little less fortunate children and it would be cool to help.

I should win the iPad
I had only enough money to buy one for my wife for Christmas. She has been thinking of one for a few months, but doesn't think I've been paying attention, or thinks I can't afford one.
So, I knew it would be a big surprise. If I won, we'd both enjoy them.

I would love to have an iPad in time for the holidays. My mom has a difficult time using a traditional computer and I would love to give her an iPad with its simple interface and responsive touchscreen.

Being a huge Apple fan, it would be the best gift...not for me but for my 6 year old daughter! God bless the lucky winner! Happy holidays!

My fiancé always gets my hand me downs, she used my 1st gen iPhone until just this year, you must know the pain that involves. Even now she's using my 3G, so I would love to replace her ancient eMachines laptop with the non-working internal wifi, external wifi receiver, tiny,tiny,tiny calculator sized screen and worn out trackpad. Come on TiPb hook a brotha up, I'll dress in a santa suit and say Ho,Ho,Ho when I deliver the iPad

I would like an iPad so I can finally stick with my New Year's resolution:

I would dearly love to have an iPad. It's exactly the right size to take with me when I'm out and about. I can run my utilities on it to diagnose network issues, have the screen real estate to give a nice cozy presentation, and watch a good movie after a hard days work. I'd be eternally grateful if Santa (or his partners, the folks at TiPB) could make a stop in the southwest with a shiny new iPad. I might even be persuaded to write a blog entry or two about my experiences with the iPad.
Almost forgot, you need a mailing address. Well, for now let's just say I'm at
Lat = 35 degrees, 22.5 minutes North
Long = 97 degrees, 33.9 minutes West
If anyone should deem my post to be worthy of an iPad, I can translate that into an actual mailing address.

Why I'd like the iPad
Funny enough, it wouldn't be for me...but for my mom, who lives far far away.
Since this is the season for giving, I'd like her to keep contact with me and my 6 and 4 year old kids and think this would really help her do that.
If I win, we can even have it sent to her (in Florida). I'm sure she'd be absolutely thrilled!

I have to watch what I spent but have been eyeing the iPad ever since it arrived and my friends and coworkers began purchasing them. As a developer, I can hardly wait to use iMockups on iPad.

Need for ipad
Hey René and all of the Tipb staff,
First off I'm a big fan of your site. I check it out everyday, but this is actually the first time I'm posting in the forum. I'm not trying to kiss *** for the iPad but if thats what it takes so be it lol.. I'm such a big fan of all apple products especially the iphone and macbooks.. I've had every iphone since launch day 2007. The reason I haven't been able to get myself an ipad is because since Dec. 31 2009, I have been out of a job. I worked in pharma sales and as everyone knows that industry has been in decline that past 2 to 3 years. The moment that the iPad came out i knew i wanted it but it was between the ipad and putting food on the table for my family. The iPad would be a great ending to a depressing and sad year for me. Anyway thanks Tipb for the great info day in and day out and i have my fingers cross that Rene will be my santa.lol

As one of thousands to post, we'd love a second iPad in our family. I currently own a 64GB wi-fi version, which I take with me to work and use every day, all day (I'm a high school music teacher and I use UnrealBook and ForScore for all my music). A second iPad would allow my wife to have one at home, too.
(She'd probably get the 64GB version, as the 32 comes with 3G, which would be great when I'm out of range of the school's wi-fi...which happens frequently in the music rooms...sand-filled concrete walls).
