"A great and fun to use media consumption device."4.0 starson by tonyqmartin
Pros: Size for viewing content, weight is carrying around, speed is nice, and ease of use is king! The Apple ecosystem is the real plus for this device, however.
Cons: No retina display. GPS antenna should be included on all models. The new smart covers don't protect the back of the device from dings and scratches, It should have come with the basic plastic cover. I don't like having to install iTunes.
Summary: Slick, small & light, nice apps. I'm a tinker, but I won't want to have to hassle with software all the time. Sometimes I just want something that works. I have so many PCs and Windows laptops that it is just nice to have something that mostly works 24/7 and looks nice while doing so. I also have a Nook Color that is running the pre-release SDK of Android 3.0 HoneyComb. The Nook is great for what it is, but the iPad just brings home why people like it. I do home to bring the NC to its full glory once the final release is available, but I still think the iPad 2 will be my couch/travel machine.
