NaBloPoMo 2014: Day 2 – New iPad!!

It was April when I finally admitted that I may want to buy a new iPad. I knew that the new iPads would be announced in October so I didn’t want to buy an iPad that had been previously released. I figured I could wait until the new ones were announced. Who knew what sort of new features would be announced. Plus, I had been using my old iPad 1 for so long that I could wait to buy the newest of the new. I had the money to buy the iPad back in April, but I set it aside for when the time came.

Well, the time has finally come. New iPads were announced mid October and released last week. My gold iPad Air 2 arrived on Tuesday. I picked it up from UPS about 5 minutes before we had to leave for our prenatal class. I didn’t open the box because I knew I wouldn’t want to stop playing. When we got home from our class, it was well past bedtime so I didn’t even take my iPad out of the box that night! I had it in my possession for over 15 hours before I actually turned the thing on! It was amazing self restraint on my part.

New iPad Air 2!

I set it up as a new iPad and am adding the apps and content as I go along. I am really liking starting from the ground up. I am still working at getting it just the way I want it, but it’s been a fun process. I also love how it syncs over iCloud with my iPhone. Content is consistent on all devices. It makes me happy.

Yes, I feel a tiny bit guilty for spending money on this new toy while I could have bought something for the baby. However, since I set the money aside ages ago, it makes me feel slightly better.

Did anyone else buy or are planning on buying the new iPad?

    you deserve a treat! I find it hard to spend money on myself beyond an iced coffee because I think, “I could buy Vincent or Jeremy something.” But we deserve special treats too.

    I actually really want an iPad. I didn’t think I would until I got my phone and played with my sisters iPad mini for a few minutes. It is TONS faster than my nook color which I mainly use for Vincent’s shows and apps. I would love an iPad for me since it syncs apps and I could buy a keyboard to use it to blog with when I’m out. I don’t think it will ever happen though.

    Nice! I’m actually contemplating trading my Air in for an Air 2. I was really bummed out last year when I found out the air wasn’t coming with the Touch ID, which is something I really wanted. Now that the Air 2 has it, I might trade mine in for it. We shall see! Anyway, enjoy!
