It depends what you want it for - I have everything too but the iPad is a lot easier and lighter to carry than a laptop, and bigger and better screen than an iPhone , we take it when we travel, or go out, great for kids ( apps plus we download movies) great to store photos and send/receive emails

I have a wireless router at home at work so I just bought a wifi one. If you buy a 3G one for Internet access where there is no wifi you'll need a plan.

so what's a portable wireless device? I know I'm tech challenged. I don't have an iphone and we use computers in our house lol
Is there a big difference in price to the 3G version?
Also are there other tablets on the market which are cheaper but just as good?

Dh and i have one, its our main thing we use for the net.
Def recoomend getting the 3g one, its not that much more, but really handy. U get a sim card for it and its like a prepaid thing, so when we go visit mil, i put 20 bux on there for a gig of usage and it lasts a month, i dont do it often, because im at home all the time and it accesses our net via wifi.
The o ly downfall are the kids wanting to use it cause of all the apps.

Thanks for the replies - I thought some of them were 3G but wasn't sure.
I love my iPhone but find when I'm sitting on the couch with DD2 unwinding at night the screen is too small for me to just read and the lap top I can't have on my lap as DD will push buttons. So I'm glad to hear it can be used easier. Probably when I'm feeding new baby it'll be handy. I was thinking it'd be easier to take to hospital than my laptop.
Might be worth getting the 3G, though I guess I could always use my phone as a hot spot and put the iPad onto that. Things to think about.
That's awesome, I was glad to come back after dinner and see so many replies. Appreciate the negative too so thank you.
