    Great way to introduce older people to email, using the net. Never thought an older member of family would have the patience to learn new things, but cannot keep the I pad away from him now. ABT can place a film over the screen - did not have this done at the time of purchase, but believe that it would have been a good option to request and have professionally applied.

    Comments about Apple iPad With Wi-Fi + 3G 64GB:

    There is nothing like the iPad. My laptop is heavier, desktop is tethered to home. I read more books on the iPad and it is a pleasure. I use all Apple products, so evereything is in complete sync. I bought it because I could, but am completely surprised how it has become such a useful tool for my lifestyle. I rely on my laptop and iPhone less. This is the perfect compliment.

    Service and delivery comments:

    All was better than expected. Professional personel and company recommended by my son-in-law.

      I have grandchildren that wait in line to play their favorite game and never worry about it being too fragile. It is solid.

      Looking forward to more iPad apps. Typing is easy enough. I also use a wireless keyboard that works well.

      Can create documents and print them just fine.

        Comments about Apple iPad With Wi-Fi + 3G 64GB:

        I use this for information on the go and personal entertainment. I am most impressed with the screen quality and how rich native apps are to interact with. Amazed at speed when used on WiFi through FiOS, a bit of lag using slower 3G or WiFi on slow internet connections. I still prefer my laptop for serious web browsing, but this is perfect for occassional use as it does not have all the problems of a laptop (battery life, weight, screen angle/brightness, heat, etc). Don't like Safari, many websites don't work right, even the ones that are NOT Flash based. Apple should have included a built in HDMI port for screen mirroring. The VGA adapter requires each App to be coded to output to external display. An SD card reader should also be built in. Having to carry around a bag of adaptors defeats some of the pros.

          Steve Jobs calls it "magical"...all I know is that I turned from a big skeptic to an advid advocate who has convinced several of my friends to buy one. I 've drank the cool-aide. Whether for entertainment or business use, the technology has arrived.

          I still can't type normally on the virtual keyboard, but two-finger-pecks are fast enough. I also wish the screen wasn't so reflective.
