Haha, fair enough. I've had a blast with that game.

Played a little Swords and Sworcery last night, pretty neat little game. Also went through some more Infinity Blade, not a bad game either. Just bought the Plex media app and XMen arcade game today.

I like the ipad1 and ipad2 a lot. I just can't justify spending six bills on something like that. I wouldn't get anywhere near enough use out of it to justify that type of expenditure. Now if they were 200-300 bucks I might reconsider.

I told you that you would love the ipad.

We took the wife's ipad2 on vacation this past week and had it connect wirelessly to my Samsung Vibrant phone which was acting as a mobile access point in the car. My wife was able to get the internet on it and do her homework and other stuff on it while travelling. Who the hell needs the 3G version for more money?

That was one of two main things for me. IMO, Android seems like it should be the cheaper option, but if it's the same price as an iPad, the iPad is a better option. Again just my opinion. I spent $380 on my refurbished iPad 1 and it's perfect. I've been reading a book or two, playing some really awesome games, surfing the web and taking notes. Battery life has been awesome, I usually get about 2 full days before hitting 20% and that's with HEAVY use.

The other main thing for me was apps. The games on iOS are a billion times better than Android. Also the apps on iOS just seem like they flow/work better, like the devs put more time into them. But again, that's my opinion.

If I can eventually find an ipad2 used or refurbished on sale for under $300 - may buy. I want the camera the ipad2 has for facetime use.

Good luck finding it for that cheap. Apple stuff doesn't sell cheap when it comes to used goods. I would say wait until iPad 3 has been out for a little while, then check the Apple refurb store.

I'm aware it will be quite some time before they are down to that price range. Kinda where the ipad1 is at right now used/refurb'd. I'm patient so it's no prob.

Good call. I'm glad I waited until now to get into tablets. Not only did I spent within my limits but I got a good quality product. Remember that Apple refurbs get new cases and batteries, and a 1 year warranty.
