Mac guy that I am, I love my laptop. I am a second generation type of purchaser: second iterations of so many different models of Apple Computers (way back to the 512 with internal floppy disk), second gen of iPod and finally, of the iPhone.
I will likely be a first gen purchaser of the iPad.
Wish it had a camera. Wish it had a lot of things. But, as I consider all I do and enjoy on my iPhone, seems to me that the iPad will be a fantastic addition.
Most of all, though, I think I want a class set of iPads. I want my students to access the wide world out on the Internet in a fast and easy way. I want them to stop lugging around text books and printing out reams of paper. I suspect that the iPad will provide us (finally) the adequate platform to get the job done.
So, yes, I want an iPad.
