    Comments about Apple iPad With Wi-Fi + 3G 32GB:

    Very handy in regard to surfing the internet and in checking email, also, has the GPS built-in, which is great, too! I agree with most reviewers that recommended the 32GB version in regard to having the ability to handle more applications!

        Comments about Apple iPad With Wi-Fi + 3G 32GB:

        I bought this knowing it wasn't as powerful as my laptop but it does fit a niche in that it's more portable and easier to take with me when I know I'll have time on my hands, such as getting my car serviced. I have an iPhone but the screen is too small for me to enjoy some of my games. The iPad is perfect for that but has many of the same features as my laptop. I can check email if needed but enjoy playing with all the available apps.
        The design is beautiful... pretty much an iPhone or iTouch on steroids. I do like gadgets so this a great addition to my "stuff". Others may find it limiting but if you know what you're getting before you buy it, you should be happy with it.

            Comments about Apple iPad With Wi-Fi + 3G 32GB:

            It has s*x appeal and a nice screen, but
            -it does not replace my laptop (because it requires a computer to use and it does less than my touchscreen laptop).
            - I can type fast, so the oncsreen keyboard is awkward.
            - it is too big to replace my iTouch (which does the same things on a smaller screen but is way easier to carry)
            - it does not replace my Palm Pre because it is too bulky to be a phone and it does not multi task the way the Palm does.
