iPad 1 getting long in the tooth...

As I just commented moments ago, the iPad 1 is getting longer and longer in the tooth. Lots of interesting iOS 6 only apps coming and i'm slowly starting to feel the pain. Far from being a paper weight, but considering it's mass, it's starting to feel like one.

Anyone else here holding on to the original market disrupter ??

My wife uses mine everyday mostly as an e-reader but still for some light web surfing and Facebook.

It'll be used this way until it dies

My sister has one, but she uses stuff way past its useable life, so the iPad is new in comparison to her MacBook that has a 5 second battery life and beach balls on everything.

Same here. Going to be interesting at vacation time when she tries to stuff some movies between all the games she has collected over the years.

I still use a couple of original iPads. Gave one to my dad at Christmas. Works just fine for the most part. I am finding that Safari is crashing more frequently these days as websites push the limitations of the old hardware.

Three years on and my kids still use their iPad 1 everyday. The also each have an iPod touch, plus a cheap cell phone. They do most of their schoolwork on the iPad.
