    I am a little nervous about taking my iPad to school and work due to the high number of people that will want to play with it. I also have a boss that will think it cost a million dollars and I make too much money!!

    I bought mine mainly for work. I have a million meetings a day and a bunch of other things to use it for. Stupid government computers.

    I'm a student myself. One reason I bought mine is to use for school. A lot of my material, quizzes, and homework is all done online. So far the iPad has been excellent with the exception of flash.

    I am totally going to take my 3G iPad to work! In fact, the main reason I ordered a 3G version (thus forcing myself to wait until end of month) is because my work's secure environment doesn't allow WiFi, so my 3G will be my guerrilla link to the outside world Once I have my iPad, I can leave my MBP at home and enjoy the slimness of my iPad instead. I'm excited!

    I purchased a capacitive stylus n executive portfolio folder, and the Sketchbook HD app. I plan on using it for note taking at meetings and other things like that

    Do you plan on using Sketchbook HD app for notetaking with the capacitive stylus, or some other app for notes? I'm not familiar with the app and was wondering about the capabilities.

    Dying to know which company that is????

    I will def bring mine to work just so I can browse and do personal email without using my iPhone. The only thing I'll have to think about is where to put it when I'm running away from my desk, I can't plop it in my pocket like my iPhone and my desk is not secure enough to just leave it lying around.

    You could take a que from Apple and alarm-tether it to your desk? I'm like you, however. I'm looking forward to my iPad's arrival so I can use it in my most-secure work environment.

    I'll be taking mine to work every day. Then again, I work from home! But it will be sitting at my work station providing views onto additional information (email, twitter, etc.).

    I am going to try it. But I guess I better clarify, I downloaded Sketch"pad" HD. I use a Palm Pre, so I don't have to worry about multiple apps with similar names since we only have 100 apps anyway... :-) But anyway, Sketchpad has ruled paper as well. There may be better apps, but I'm going to give this one a shot.

    I'm the same way....problem is my iphone doesn't get service in my building so i don't think the 3g ipad would either....

    Not being able to get a decent case, yet, I didn't take mine into work today and all of my office mates were POed because they were looking forward to seeing it/trying it out (local Best Buy only had a hand-full of cases come in Saturday evening even though they had 100 iPads). I didn't even think about the security part of it since I'm also in and out of the office and the iPhone is easy to throw in the pocket. Didn't the musical duo Kris Kross have jeans with enormous pockets (of course, worn backwards)??

    Be sure to check out LogMeIn Ignition so that you can access your MBP from the iPad. Also Mobile Me or Dropbox.

    HAHA... Nope... I think I'll get strung up if I worked a Palm... I work at Dell. We don't have a competing product for the iPad yet, but we are trying to get in the mobile product line...seem to always be a day late and a dollar short.

    Great suggestions! I'll be returning to the forum often to get good tidbits on how to fully implement the iPad into my daily life. It's amazing how much I use my iPhone for everything that I have no doubt at all that the iPad will be a daily companion also. I'm ready to get my geek groove on.

    I think that those of us who have recognized what a powerful computer the Iphone is, are really in a good position to recognize how powerful the iPad will be.
