This is for PUers that have an Ipad. Since those that have them have had them for a while,

-How much memory does yours have, and how much is left?
-How many app's do you have installed? (ballpark is fine)
-What non-game programs do you use the most, if any?
-Is the model that you have enough for your needs?

Yes I'm looking at tablets. I need the 3g applications for the business, and becuase I would rather get this then a smartphone (the Square-Plus has already been shipped, woohoo!). I have not been over impressed with the other tablets despite any cost advantages. So I may have to get my turtleneck while I am at it.



If you would rather PM then post the info I would be fine with that.

I have the IPad first gen with 64 Gig memory, though only 59.2 Gig is usable.
I have 24.7 Gig left after having the following on it:
285 songs
9 videos (mostly Disney Movies)
268 photos
434 applications (about 90% are games)

Non-game use is mostly:
Kindle app
IPod app for 'books on tape"
Remote app for controlling my Media Center PC that we use as a DVR
Weather Bug
Netflix
Photo album
Splashtop desktop remote (for playing PC games-does that count?)
Night Stand
Office HD
news apps

You would love the art apps I have and of course the photo apps.
They are coming out with new games everyday. I love mine and I don't think I would go smaller, especially if I was a bigger shutterbug.

-Is the model that you have enough for your needs? So far, I'm learning.

Downside: FireFox does not make an operating system for it. I'm looking for a keyboard for it that has a case and USB port to make it more functional at work. The on screen keyboard would turn me into a hunt and peck typer. That would be okay for short term use. I plan on mainly using it for record keeping, typing up notes, and playing Angry Frogs on. I know it isn't much, but after reading Harb's note, I know not to download a butt load of music or movies on it. Go with the bigger drive if you can. This one was issued at work.

I could post all that shit Harb just did, but then I'd have to quit playing my Ipad.

In other words, "Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up"

I have 2 Ipad 2's. Ill be getting a 3 on launch this time around instead of waiting.

Just buy one, get the bigger one, be done with it.
