I love my iPad.
I am a long time hardcore PC user and I never liked Apple. My iPad is my 1st Apple product and I love it. I hardly use my PC at home anymore, pretty much only for downloading. Its such a better experience using the iPad for day to day home computing tasks, and I can do them from anywhere.
I don't think people get. It really is an amazing product. It is so great to not have to sit in my home office at my desk to use the Internet etc.. . Its so nice to be able to carry it around and use it sitting in any position on my couch, dining room table, balcony etc.. Its such a better experience over a laptop / netbook.
