Summary: Buy a new one. I returned this one, and then newegg said it wasn't in the box. But I think they will give me credit, since the UPS weight proves it was in the box when I shipped it.
Pros: A refurbished unit cost less than a new one.
Cons: When I loaded a pdf with pictures, it said "insufficient memory". Sometimes apps like Scrabble could not connect. I had trouble reading National geographic- sometimes it was OK and other times "Cannot access". The charger only worked intermittently, and it has no camera.
Excerpt: The ipad is cool because it is the beginning of the future, which is pretty exciting, but there are just too many flaws. First off theres no usb port so how are you supposed to transfer information from your ipad to other cpus. Also there really is no point of having an ipad besides to look cool. I'm sorry I would much rather dump $600 dollars on a laptop whether mac or pc that will have much much more processing power.
Only great for people never have an iphone or ipod touch before

Excerpt: Hello everyone, First of all i just want to say that whatever you reading here is only my opinions, so don't take too seriously about all the problem i'm gonna listed down here. If you are the person who never had or use iphone or ipod touch before then you would love this product very much.
Excerpt: The Apple iPad is the latest device from the Apple hype machine. And does it live up to that high expectation? Well... kinda, but not really. I got an iPad on day 1. The 16GB version because I didn't think I'd need much space but after a few days the 16GB (12GB actual) was used completely so I upgraded to the 32GB. As for the iPad itself. This is what I've been asking for forever.
