After much debate over the weekend, I've put some stuff up for sale like my HTPC, extra Motorola Droid 1 and Nintendo Wii. HTPC is sold so that brings in a good chunk of cash. If I can sell my phone, I think I'm just going to get a refurbished iPad 1 from Apple. It's $350, and they replace the casing and put a new battery in it. Worth it to me. Let's see how these sells go!

So yesterday I went by Best Buy and bought a Nook Color; thought it would be a better buy after a while, cheaper, etc. Got it home and was going to root, install CM7, etc. However I had a TON of problems just getting the SD card formatted and prepped in the right way. Horrible luck is what I call it. I finally got the Nook back to stock and am going to take it back tomorrow, get my money back.

After a long drive home and lots of debate, I decided just to go with the iPad. I know that it works out of the box and I don't have to hack anything. Should've went with my first pick instead of overthinking it. Live and learn eh?

Should get the iPad in the next week! I'll post pics and stuff then.

BTW, thanks zoomy for all your help today. I am just cursed when it comes to certain things!

Ya, had the same issues. As it turned out my Sd card reader wasn't compatible with cards 4Gb+ so I needed a smaller one, etc. PITA. I just sent mine to zoomy.

I honestly would've been happy if I would've gotten it to work by this afternoon, but every time I got a custom ROM on it, I couldn't get into settings or even the market due to FC's. Very very frustrating. I can't wait to get my iPad.

Checked the status again, it left Memphis about 3 hours ago so it will be in Nashville TODAY. That means that I'll be getting my iPad on TUESDAY!!
