I know we usually review books here, but we do occasionally tackle a few other things as well, like kitchenware and the occasional bit of computing equipment or software. Since I’ve been using my iPad daily since it came out, I decided it was time to give my initial impressions. Just for reference, I have the 16G wifi model, case, and keyboard with dock. Why did I go for the low-end model? Well, I’m not an early adopter. I like to wait until the second or, preferably, third round of a product so the bugs can be worked out and the price can come down. However, the iPad fits my needs so well that I couldn’t resist—but I also know that a first-gen device like this will probably need to be replaced sooner than a later one, so I didn’t want to spend the money for a truly top-end device.
