All that being said, if you are still buying a first-gen iPad, I don't know what to tell you...lol

An Ipad at more than 300$ is highway robbery.

You'll have more money by staying away from apple products!

I love how the Canadian $ is stronger than US and the Ipad sells for $420 here. Ya no... if I want a pad, I'll borrow one of my wife's.

It's still $400! I rather buy the new one for $100 more, duh. Trust me, just look for a used one, people are dumping the first gen like crazy (and chances are they have all of the account information on it, you can just buying things and they pay for them, lol). Seriously, there's no point paying $400 for the first iPad, it's way too much.


Peace!
