    Hopefully you enjoy it. I can't see myself enjoying what is almost essentially a giant iPhone. I've used the iPad a couple of times at my local best buy store, and it's hard to see what makes it worth it. The web browsing experience isn't very good to me, for example MySpace. You can't even IM. It's also sluggish just like my 2nd gen iPod touch.
    Sorry for putting down some of my thoughts

    I don't know of any good comic readers at the moment.

    You are wrong. I had the same feeling about it before I bought it, and I think it's a great device.

    I have to disagree. It is, in no way, sluggish. The web browsing experience is a lot better than the iPod Touch/iPhone mainly because of the larger screen. And for IM-ing, there are apps for that.

    You say it like this:

    Myspace IM - 'there's an app for that'

    PAC-MAN for Ipad is a pretty good app for some brief entertainment. Speedtest HD does a pretty nice wifi/3G speed test.

    Just some of the apps I use on my Ipad.

    For me it's too big and fragile to be portable.

    Did you just say its too big to be portable? -.-
    It is smaller, and lighter then a netbook or notebook.

    It is the king of portability for what it can do.

    Anyways, I want to pick one up, but my current laptop is serving me fine and I am expecting a iPod touch from a trade I am doing with a user on here, so an iPad doesn't appeal to me right now.
