I was considering buying an iPad and want to know people's feedback.

Only good for videos and games? Pros? Cons?

How is the CR app on it?

Thanks!

I'd rather have a laptop or an iPhone.

I'd say hold off on the iPad for a while. There aren't enough ipad specific apps for it yet. The only reason I'd get one at this point is if you're developing apps for it, or you want to do something like watch a lot of videos on something with a larger screen.

I would buy an iPod touch or an iPhone first because those are much more portable. The iPad is an awkward size for just carrying around all the time. (It's like carrying around a clipboard...won't fit in your pocket.)

I wouldn't know since I don't have one. Check out the threads shinji made. There could be info on what's the Ipad like & how it performs.

Well, it's not really something you can put it in your pocket...
Your going to have to put it in a bag, which is going to be something to carry
And your going to worry about dropping it, being stolen, and the price isn't very fair D :
You would have better luck buying an iTouch. Also, it's more portable than the iPad (:

Btw, here's a video I thought was entertaining:

Not really worth it. beside the iphone 4g will come out in summer. I bet people would be crazy to get that first.

Thanks for the info so far! Seems like the general consensus is to wait/not buy/buy something else so far.

I will say I have an ipod touch 2g, but I was being drawn in by the nice big screen. iPad is def not as portable though...

not worth it. the iphone is better, and it cost less.
i have the cr app on my iphone. it's ok. still buggy. cause i think they're still on the alpha. like the subtitles don't show up, and lag. but once the full version comes out, hopefully all the big bugs are fixed.

if you want to watch it on a big screen. watch it on your computer. the ipad is hd, but i don't think the app is.

Eh, I don't know. I'm still thinking about whether or not I should get one. I really wanted the iPad to run on Mac OS...
But is it worth it? In my opinion, no. It's pretty expensive, but if I really think about it the prices are somewhat reasonable considering what the iPad can do.
But for now, I'm just going to wait, it's not worth it right now.
