Did you pre-order the new iPad and/or Apple TV?
I did! I did! My first iPad to own.
Reason I got it was for school.. I figured I'm using way too much paper for lectures plus my handwriting starts to look ugly after a couple hours of writing.
Cheaper and lighter than a Macbook Air, but with certain compromises. That was my selling point on ordering one.
I also got the Apple TV for the airplay capability.. I just thought it'd be a fun way to show my family some pictures on the big TV instead on my iPhone or Macbook screen.
I'm pretty excited about it coming next week. I would've just settled for the iPad 2, but my secondary selling point was also the retina display. Regardless of what people say how useless it would be, I like the difference between my iPhone 3G and iPhone 4s looks.
