Is an iPad worth it?


Thinking about pulling the trigger but can't decide. Is it as good as they say? Is it worth the money?

Yes. On mine now. Much more convenient than my laptop and easier to carry than books.

As opposed to what, another tablet? I don't see the need for my laptop anymore.

very very very good. But the Nexus 7 is also a great piece of hardware. Depends on what you prioritize. do you mind using phone apps on a tablet? or do you want apps customized for the screen size you're using. If you're just going to surf the internet on it then that may not mater to you.

Tablets are great. Pick one with the operating system you prefer and enjoy.

If you're looking for a total laptop replacement, it won't meet your needs unless you never use productivity software. It's a great for web surfing, games, videos, etc. I use mine to remotely access my real computer a lot.

Such an open ended question, with many open ended answers.

Not surprising coming from the intellects on these boards.

Do you have an iphone or a macbook already? Or do you have a widows laptop? The answers to these questions can influence the answer to your question.

Whenever someone is contemplating a tablet purchase, I ask them how they plan on using it. There is a tablet out there for just about every sort of user, so you can get something FOR YOU instead of worrying about name brands.

So what do you plan to do with your tablet? If you aren't going to do more than play games, surf the web, read books, and check email, I wouldn't recommend an iPad because you can get a number of tablets that do all of that for much cheaper.

I love my iPad and would recommend it to anyone...however, don't confuse it with a laptop replacement. Even with a Bluetooth keyboard, it doesn't do enough.

I have mine with me at all times, school, work and home. It's well worth the money.

Didn't really get to play with one until I went home for Thanksgiving and used my moms. It's really nice and I kinda want it now. Wish I had it right now to follow fantasy football because the app is so much better than the phone.

Love mine. Just got iPad 2 64 GB with Verizon 3G for $540 through Amazon.

It's not worth more than that though. Find a gold deal.
