I finally bought an iPad. I have been wanting one for a few months now and I saw that some had gone on sale. It was 'save $40' kind of sale but it was still pretty sweet. I went for a black 128gb iPad and it brought it down so it was close to how much the 64gb iPad cost. With the sale it was $759.99 and add in some tax and you're looking at about $860.48. Then I ended up getting a two year protection plan with the store since the nearest Apple store is in Yorkdale!

Well about $900 later and I was walking out of the store with my new toy. I had flashbacks to when I bought my Gateway All in One computer. That was a $900 purchase except I had two of my friends there to encourage it. I messages one of them and told them about that nostalgic memory and he sent be a belated 'DO IT!!!'

I've gotten a good chunk of my apps on it, still need to sync my music at some point.

What apps do you guys recommend or like for the iPad? I have a few people at work who have iPads so I'm going to bug them as well.

So excited!!! Having the money to buy this and still have a chunk of change left over makes me feel happy. Here's to my future paycheques! I have plans for a gaming PC. Mewahahaha!!!

congratulations on the iPad. I have an inexpensive 9" Android tablet to play with so can't give any suggestions for apps.

I did find a cat toy app. I set it to laser pointer so a red dot was floating about the screen. Each time you tap the dot it explodes and you get 100 points. At first Mynx only looked at it but she eventually started to paw at the dot. I took a video and she got up to 1700 points. A few minutes more and she had 2800 points. It was fun to watch since I wasn't sure it was going to work. She was purring the entire time!

I like it. Mynx - a geek-in-training. Real trooper!

I got a nice Rocketfish case, black, and a Rocketfish stylus, also black. I have about three different apps where you could doodle or write with your finger, but a stylus is better. More precise. Faster too... Fewer finger prints. The stylus was cheap and simple in design - perfect. The case doesn't cover the screen with straps, it just sort of clips onto the edges and the flap folds over the front. Simple, clean design. I can have the iPad at a steep, landscape angle or a low angle.

Mynx is currently rubbing her face into the upper corner.. Crazy cat!

Instead of fingerprints you are going have cat scratches as Mynx plays her game - high score!
