I am planning to get one for my 77 year old mother. I know it makes poor sense to buy a first revision of anything (especially from apple) but who knows how long she'll be around. It was going to be a surprise, but i really should ask her if she would prefer a Tivo instead, in case I'm imagining her want or need for one. She already has a 17" imac and has learnt not to be disappointed by failed promises- she'll click on anything.
I look forward to the day when entire carriage loads of commuters are immersed in their ipads, so i won't feel such a geek having one. (a second or third gen)
