I use my iPad every single day and no, I couldn’t live without it. I have a desktop, laptop and smart phone yet the iPad still has many functions.

I bought an iPad for school when I didn’t have a laptop. I used it all the time until I got my Macbook, now it just sits in the case on a shelf. I take it with me on trips on occasion to watch Netflix on, but it doesn’t get much use anymore. I would sell it, but I’m worried that the moment I do sell it I will need it again. 

If you already have a Macbook and an iPhone, I might not buy one unless you just want one.

As soon as I get home, I trade my iPhone for my iPad. The laptop is so cumbersome on the couch!  But the iPad is perfect. Love it!

@oracle:  I love my iPad!  However, my use of it has declined since last Christmas when I received my MacBook Air from the Fiance for Christmas.  I have found that the iPad stays upstairs and the laptop is downstairs.  So now I use the iPad when I am messing around on the internet before bedtime or watching a show on Netflix while I’m on the elliptical.  I also have an iPhone and a Kindle.  I’m a geek, lol.

We won ours at a Christmas party. I love it and use it almost every day. Not sure if I would buy it however as it really does everything that the I-phone does. I guess it’s just better on the eyes due to size. More fun to play games with family too.

I have the Microsoft Surface, which is similar but more like a “real computer” (not like a smartphone).

It’s pretty cool. Usually that’s what I use to surf weddingbee. It replaces the laptop for “light use” computer tasks. It is much lighter than my laptop…comfortable to hold up with one hand. It also has a stand that flips out so you can prop it up anywhere horizontally or vertically.

You still need a real computer for “heavy duty” computer tasks that need specialized software.

I’m on my iPad at least 10 hours of the day, at least. I absolutely adore it and never leave home without and if I do I MUST return to get it!!!

I bought my iPad new and I’ve proably spent 5 hours using it, if that.  It’s practically brand new. :/

I fought against getting one for a bit but now that I have one I use it all the time. When I am at home I am constantly on it reading, checking emails, FB, weddingbee, playing games etc. I love it when I travel as I can watch movies/tv shows and even work from remote locations.
