I have a desk top computer already and thought about getting a kindle reader (Christmas present from hubby actually) but the more I look at ipads, the more I like them. I really don't think we can afford to go all out with all the bells and whistles these things can come with. So can someone please explain the options and what they mean? First of all, is the iPad2 that much better than the regular iPad? There is a pretty big price difference. I can spend from $499 to $829 for an iPad2, but the first generation iPad is only $499 for the 64G with 3G! So it's $330 less.....but only first generation. they come in 16G, 32G and 64G, starting at $499 and adding $100 for each step up.eek! But then again....16G is still better than Kindle. WiFi + 3G. Base price for wiFi 3G is $629 for the 16G model and jumps $100 for each upgrade. Does this mean I can connect to the internet on my ipad using my cell phone? Maybe I can cancel my home internet through ATT? If this is the case, which would save a good chunk of money each month. I know an iPad can't really replace a good desktop or laptop, but I would not be using it as a replacement anyway. I'd be using it to browse the web, post on forums, some games (simple ones, not high graphic games), and as an E-reader. Thanks in advance for any wisdom you can share. I don't understand all of this stuff!
