i'm kinda contemplating buying an ipad 2 for my mom as a surprise, though ugh, why do they have to be so expensive? but still, she totally deserves 100 of them. though what on earth she'd do with 100 ipads i don't know.

Sorry for the slow response, I was too busy playing with the iPad.

Pretty awesome so far, no buyer's remorse here. I haven't had an iPhone or touch version of an iPod, so I've spent most of my time messing with the App store and various other apps. So much cool stuff. Going to be all over JT's app thread, though I noticed I'd already downloaded a number on the list.

I went with a black Wi-fi only 64 gig model. Probably didn't need one this big, but I'd prefer to err on the "don't need all this space" side of things than the "I don't have enough space" side.

i'd just had visions of her handing them out to people. then i imagined her handing them out like it was some form of charity. "hello my child, you look hungry. here, have an ipad."

My uncle has pretty much sold me on an iMac. he's got the big 27 inch one, and I'm in love.

I'm currently looking into apple financing (even though I've always told myself "never finance technology") Has anyone purchased any apple stuff though the financing option? I guess the idea is that I'd pay a certain amount and then borrow the rest, or do they require you to loan the total amount?

I financed through MacMall once, the full price. It was really easy and the payments were quite reasonable. I paid it off early with no penalty.
That's all I've got.

Three of us iPad-less losers were sitting around last night drooling over them.
If Quickbooks makes an iPad app, then I can justify one.

^ it is rid-i-c-u-lous and the quality of the graphics is beyond pretty

I'm not sure of the ins'n'outs (yeah, I said it :P ) of apple financing; just make sure you read the fine print on any of those payment plans ~ with some of them, the credit company remains the owner of the property even after all payments have been made; crazy but true!

/of mother moment

good luck (and I shall expect much gushing and apple induced drooling round these parts when you do get your hands on it )

I'm pretty certain mine was the deal where no interest was due if paid-off within a year. Hence, I paid it off after like 11 months.

(I don't think the interest was horrible anyway.)

So I need antivirus software on my MBP. Does anyone use it on their Mac and can recommend something? I have no idea what's good. I'm looking at BitDefender, Sophos, ClamXav, maybe McAfee.
