Advantages: Too many to list, it's an amazing gadget that you won't regret buying
Disadvantages: None but get a larger memory if you have the money
I was one of those people who thought the iPad was just an expensive status symbol that would be of no benefit to me at all. How wrong was I!
Last month I was lucky enough to win the 16 GB iPad and I haven't put it down since. Ill be the first to admit that I am not the most patient of people so having instant access to everything at the slide of a finger is amazing. I love no longer having to wait for the computer or lap top to load.
It is extremely easy to use, even though I am a nightmare with technology I have found no problems at all. I use it for everything. With so many free or cheap apps available to download it will give you hours of entertainment. Web browsing is really simple. Paying the bills is no longer a chore and with a downloaded calculator and notepad app I'm no longer searching through drawers.
You can add your music collection through iTunes and listen to music whilst you do everything else, although I would recommend a docking station or speaker connection if you want to use the iPad to replace your stereo, since the sound isn't stereo quality and doesn't go too loud.
The picture quality is amazing and can be seen in it's full glory if you download one of the HD games. It also keeps my daughter entertained on long journeys since we can use it instead of portable DVD player. There are also many child friendly apps that allow them to be really creative although I would limit this since you can't beat a hand drawn picture that you can pin on the fridge.
The keypad that comes up when you want to type is really easy to use and just about the right size, in fact I'm writing this review on it now.
For all those Facebook addicts it is a must have since you have instant access and you can see all the pictures and posts really clearly and in all their glory.
I can't be more positive about the iPad. My only recommendation would be that if you can afford it, try and buy one with a bigger memory since it is surprising how much you will use it and how much is available for you. You will soon use up your 16 GBs.
Summary: I'm never giving mine up
