Hi to all, I used to be known as cross trainer here, but have been away for some time, couldn't use my old username due to email address change.

New site looks great. I have become an iPad addict as well as my PC stuff, still going strong. Hope all who know me are well!

I'll agree with all the others who have posted praising their iPads.

Like the FE, I don't really care about Apple as such, but the fact that they make things which look good and "just work" does them credit.

I certainly wouldn't swop mine for an Android type.

Vintage90, welcome back..do you think the tablet is the way to go in terms of "viable" mobile solutions.Not tried an iPad but have been considering either that or the Galaxy,or just making do. As regards British resentment to success, that's why we have no more industry.

Your expert is right! Android is at least two years behind. Get the iPad, you won't regret it!

Daz60 an iPad is not a laptop replacement. But with the right apps it comes very close. Remember it's a cloud device, so relies on an Internet connection for most tasks.

If you are going to use it out and about, the 3G version is best. Also at least 32gb if you are always within wifi range, then you don't need to fork out the extra £££ for 3 G

I have an Asus tf101 and it is excellent. Well built and looks great. Iuse it when I am working away from home but also using it so much more at home. Its a better machine all round compared to the Iconia A500. Can't compare it to the Ipad but I refuse to have Apple products. Over £500 and you can use Flash Player which excludes a lot of Youtube etc., What??

The iPad plays YouTube videos perfectly. It's built in to the os, and works out of the box!

BBC Iplayer, etc. Apps for all popular things, and many free. I'm sticking with what I consider to be the best mobile device I have ever known. FaceTime allows you to view and speak to your friends anywhere in the world, and as long as they are using their own wifi it's free.

Glad your happy, but if you ever get a chance, have a play with one....I don't worship Mr Jobs, but his company is light years ahead with this and the iPhone. I bet you a pint of your favourite tipple that if you spend a day with one, you will never go back to anything else!

Welcome back.

If users previously had an e-book reader eg Kindle and now have an IPad do they still use the e-book reader?
