@EE,etc.: I am also planning to break years of apple-resistance and buy teh ipad next week:)

I don't think you will regret it. When the iPad first came out, I looked around all the computers in my office and at home and said "Nah -- don't need it."

Sometime later I purchased a small "netpad" computer to sit on the couch at home to be used to look things up -- what a PAIN that was -- it took forever to boot up -- I wish I'd never set eyes on it.

In fact it wasn't until the iPad2 came out that I went to a conference and saw that just about everyone I knew had one and were using them to take notes and send emails (FYI -- When you get one, download the "Notes Plus" application -- it's AMAZING!!!"

So I got one and I've never looked back...
