Chrome sync with my PC is quite useful, and on my first gen iPad, Chrome doesn't crash anywhere near as much as Safari does. Speed-wise they are more or less the same.

After owning my iPad for around a week now, I can say that it blows away every Android tablet I have owned so far (Nexus 7, Acer Iconia Tab). At first I thought the lack of a file system would be very hard to deal with. However, after downloading DiskAid (got it for free since I have a university e-mail address) I no longer need to use iTunes to get things onto my iPad. Also, I actually prefer the file system of the iPad now, thanks to DiskAid and FileApp.
Also, you get $50 of App Store credit for free if you are a University student who just purchased an iPad. That's fantastic. You can purchase QuickOffice for $20 to edit documents, FileApp for $5, and still have enough to buy some books or other things.
Also, I really don't care that I can't connect my PS3 controller to my tablet, or output video from my device. I have a Galaxy S3 for that. The iPad is amazing for media consumption. Also, I can type very fast with the on screen keyboard.
I'm very glad I didn't purchase the TF700T. I had an iPhone and I hated it. I still hate iOS for phones, it is obsolete IMO. However, I believe it far surpasses Android tablets for my needs. Android is still the dominant phone OS though. I love my Galaxy S3.
Before I purchased my iPad I thought it was a simple product made for idiots who don't want anything complicated in their lives. Now that I own it, I can easily say I was wrong. Some things still require a learning curve, and I feel like I still haven't gotten the hang of everything.
Can't wait to take this bad boy to college and start using it in class!
Cool, it's good to get your hand in the proverbial tablet cookie jar and try out a variety of them. My first tablet was an Asus Transformer TF101. It was a cool tablet but they couldn't seem to release a firmware that actually fixed the battery drain issue in sleep. They finally got a firmware that fixed the issue a month or two before I sold it. The iPad blew me away as well. The thing is just so stable and enjoyable to use. Android is getting a lot better but hasn't quite matched the user experience in iOS on the Retina iPad. I'll have to give DiskAid and some of the other apps you mentioned a try. I want to get a Nexus 7 to play with but I might wait and see how the Windows 8 tablets turn out.

Anyone know how to get free legal iTunes $?
LOL, what. There are sales sometimes like Walmart had a $100 gift card for $80 recently: link. I've gotten $50 egift cards from BestBuy.com when they had them on sale for $40 before. Then like ComradeNF mentioned students can get free App Store gift cards for buying Apple products. I've never seen iTunes money given away for free beside in the freebie section on here.

Thank you! And is the iPad mini actually going to exist? I've heard rumours of it, but was unsure whether they were true, I thought it would be just like the step from iPad 2-3 just have more power and better resolution screen. Unless they are being brought out in conjunction with one another. Personally I don't like the idea of iPad mini, one of the things that attracted to me to the iPad, and put me off other tablets was the size of them, most of them, for example the blackberry play book are much smaller in comparison! That's just my view though.

Grain of salt, I suppose, but it does seem to be relatively confirmed.

Ooer, well is it something you're happy to see?

Not... much, no. I mean, I don't look forward to it myself. I am of the opinion that the screen size matters so much that the 7" screen would be a total disappointment to use. It's too big to fit in my pocket and too small to be satisfying. If I can't see the majority of an 8 1/2 x 11 page of text as crisply and clearly as I can on paper, then the device sort of fails for me. But that's just me.

I'm not convinced the product will fail or won't sell. Rather, I think Apple could package cat poop on a spoon and you'd have people lined up with bibs on. However, I also believe they don't design poopy products, which is why people are so fanatical about their products. It's also why Samsung didn't think to themselves "Hmm, how can we do better than they're doing?" but instead said "How can we copy what they're doing?" Basically, I think Apple will capture a different market - different folks, different strokes kinda thing. The iPad mini will be great for some people and will ultimately add to the move into the post-pc era. (Oh dear gods did I actually say that??)

I guess my point is I don't have anything BAD to say about the mini. I think it'll be great! But I won't get one.

Hmmm... I sense there could be a mutiny a'brewin' now... tongue.gif

You pretty much just summed up my feelings on it to be honest! And I like the literally quip at the expense of Samsung wink.gif but I guess they are trying to fit in to the market that android and blackberry are fitting into with their smaller tablets to just broaden their control over the market. But, after all apples's previous successes, no doubt it will still be a brilliant product, even if it is something some of us aren't looking for!

Count me in.
Got the new ipad, 64gb, 4g.

Main reason: learn japanese, but I've been using it for so much more.

Loving the device... my netbook is just a downloading, hdtv media box now.

64gb might've been overkill, since I don't much care about music and don't use it to watch movies or whatever... but hey, it's better to have spare space than a lack of...

Cheers!
