Advantages: sleek design, easy to use, responsive touch screen, amazing apps and games, great for magazine readi

My boyfriend is a complete tech-head, I lovingly call him my geek. If he were writing this review then he would tell you all the amazing techy things you can do with your ipad, how amazing the graphics are on some of the games he plays...but really, i'm going to really be bold here and say that as a girl i'm not really interested in the ipad for the same reasons.
I wanted to review the ipad from a girls point of view. I decided on the 16gb wifi version as really, do i need an all singing all dancing ipad with a ton of memory? Probably not. I didn't even bother with a 3g version. I have an iphone, should I ever be desperately in need of the internet whilst I'm out. Do you really want to pay twice? You can connect your ipad to your wifi whilst you are home, or even tap into free wifi if you are in a free wifi zone.
It's really easy to download items to your ipad using Itunes, games, music, films. magazines and books download quickly and with a responsive touch screen it makes operating the ipad easy peasy
Firstly, the ipad is pretty, it's sleek, it's stylish and in my opinion just outclasses any other touch screen tablet type device out there. If you are going to spend a few hundred pounds on something, really, do yourself a favour and just spend that bit extra - you'll just be annoyed that you didn't.
The ipad is good for internet surfing, shopping sites are a breeze and there are loads of apps through itunes that are made specifically for the ipad.
Are you a lover of angry birds on your iphone - now you can have it big screen stylee! You may not be a serious enough gamer in order to have a proper gaming type device, but the ipad will satisfy the bits in your life when you have nothing better to do and especially if you are not a serious gamer.
Let's face it, the world is going digital and I for one am happy to embrace it. I'm trying to rid myself of physical discs (music and films) because what's the point when we have itunes? And magazines and books are my next target. Now, a majority of magazines I buy on a regular basis can be downloaded for my ipad. No piles of magazines, cuttings torn out...you see where i'm going here?
I already have a laptop, so do i NEED an ipad? Nope, but it's ok to just want one anyway! Honestly, you won't regret having one.
Summary: A piece of technology everyone needs
