Just sold mine locally. Three folks got into a little bidding war for it and my wife got back almost what she paid for it. As such, not sure the iPad will be the Kindle killer it's supposed to be. I'm sure the Kindle will have a price drop end of Q3 ($199, probably). Hope my wife likes the long term with the iPad's LED screen for reading. She tried the iPad for twenty minutes and wanted one.

How much is the iPad's screen like the Macbook's reflective screen? If its even remotely similar, I'll keep my Kindle for outdoor reading. On the other hand, I may need an iPad solely for the purpose of using the F1 app.

That's insane considering the Saks 5th Ave. flagship pulls a little over twice that amount, and it's a massive store with very high-end products.

This is my first Apple product so I can't compare; the couple of times I've read on it outside didn't seem too bad for a backlit display. If all I was ever going to do was read with it, I'd go with a Kindle though. I think the iPad is a nice compromise machine, but it's master of no one area.

Need For Speed: Shift is pretty fun on it, though I was disappointed to discover the Z4 M Coupe isn't in the iPad version. Would have fun to drive a computer version of my own car, especially since one of the tracks is Chicago.

Kindle is gone. My niece claimed it. Better than buying her a car...
