    This would be great option!

    Couple of questions...

    1. If I prebook ipad would I need to pay upfront or pay at the store?

    2. How many photos (very roughly) would 16gb ipad hold?

    3. Is it possible to print stuff off from ipad as I was thinking from email and pages perspective.

    I'm not sure on this one. Check the Apple web site. Since I stood in line to get mine, the prebook stuff didn't apply.

    I have no way of knowing the answer to this one. Depends on so many variables. Are you shooting JPEG or RAW? If JPEG, what size and quality?

    We can make a very rough guess based on approximate photo sizes. For instance, I've got a RAW photo I took with my Nikon DSLR. It's 5.2 MB in size and 3024 x 1998 pixels in dimension. If we assume that's a good average size, and we assume that 80% of the space on the iPad is available for pictures, then it follows that you'd be able to squeeze in something like 2700 to 2800 pictures.

    Keep in mind however that all this is a SWAG (scientific wild a55 guess) and contains no bearing on reality. :unsure:

    There are apps now that make that functionality available to you and more options are coming all the time.

    Tom :)macwave:... there's an app for that!)

    found this, not sure if its true but gives you an idea jeff

    That depends on the photos. Several factors determine the size of a photo, including the type of file, size, composition and resolution.
    Photos typically run anywhere from 1 to 5 megabytes but can be much smaller and much larger.
    If your photos average 4 megabytes you could get about 4000 pictures on a 16GB iPad.

    also found this that made me :lol:

    the real question is why in the hell would you want an iPad... i mean seriously a large not much more powerful ipod touch thats not easy to carry and cost more than a netbook that can do more??

    DS has one and it's nothing like my netbook. The iPad is easier to use and more comfortable for relaxing with and looking at web pages. Pictures look wonderful on it.

    It also turns on and off instantly unlike my netbook so if youre on a bus or something you can use it and not miss your stop waiting for the netbook to turn off :lol:

    It's way nicer than my netbook to use in every way and I want one

    Stop press! This just in!

    Evidently my earlier comment were accurate for an "earlier" version of Angry Birds HD for the iPad. The following review however indicates that these earlier issues have now been rectified:

    That's excellent! Thank you.

    I firmly believe everyone should own up to their responsibilities. You've done an admirable job of it! :thumbsup:

    I, for one, forgive you. :ROFL:

    It's been a life saver for me :yes: We had to read wuthering heights over easter for college, I seemed to be the only person who actually read it so we now have to read it as a class like 5 year olds. Now I sit with angry birds behind the book and play that :yes: :rotfl:
