Take it easy, Jim. Everything is gonna be alright. [emoticon]

I might suggest you get the lowest priced device if you’re buying new. That should be sufficient for most people. The 8th generations are available now, but from what I’ve read, it doesn’t offer a lot over the 7th gen (that’s what I have), but your needs may be unique and require the pro series of iPad. Do some investigating online. [emoticon]

I got mine off of ebay [emoticon] It arrives Thursday, and I hate you'all too [emoticon]

Well, now I have a complete “laptop”. I received my adaptor from Amazon today and can use thumb drives and wired mouse if for some reason I cant use the wireless one. Because my left hand is paralyzed (stroke) I need to use only my right hand to insert peripheral devices into the USB-A socket. It’s a little difficult but it gets done. I even tried running an external hard drive, but didn’t expect it to work (too much power draw even with power provided to the iPad), and sure enough it didn’t, although it seemed to try. So now, I’m a happy camper. If my trusty Toshiba gives up I’m covered. [emoticon] Ed

Apple announced the spring event is april 20th. Most likely new iPads. Which means current ones will be reduced in price....
