    I wanted to get the xoom wifi only. I have been looking at the forums about it and I see a lot of people that are happy with it and others who returned it for an ipad. Just wanted to know if the xoom is worth having or should I wait for something else that is coming out. Or get the ipad (I don't like apple but if they are the best at the tablets I can't deny that u know?)

    Just wanted so quick ideas before I drop $600 on something you know?

    I have the Xoom and love it, money well spent - we have an entire site dedicated to the Xoom at xoomforums.com and one dedicated to the ipad at ipadforum.net join the discussion, it may help your decision making process ;)

    I just got a xoom last week and i still love it. Came in handy yesterday and a gps since my phone was kind of dying.

    so far i've used it as a light web browser, media device, and even accessing my pc at home, it's a great thing. It's easier to bring places than my netbook and much quieter.

    $600, definitely well spent.

    No problem, also if you buy the Xoom or ipad at best buy they have a 30 day return policy, Costco has a 90 day one - give em' both a good test run and see which one comes in first :D

    How is the video quality? I wanna be able to put movies on it and watch them and stuff. Surf the net. Ans use it as an ereader. Those are main uses for it.

    The video quality on the Xoom is awesome, it streams and plays back at 1080p, I can't speak for the ipad though -

    I pad doesn't have flash that's my main thing against getting one. I planned on converting movies I have on my computer and put them on my xoom so I can watch them anywhere I go. Thanks for you input guys.

    the screen on this thing is very nice. I personally think Sony Vaio's have one of the best screens on the market, and i do own an all-in-one as my main pc and the xoom is comparable to such quality.

    I have had the Xoom now for 4 days; Paid $600 with a 2 year plan with Verizon. This thing rocks! I have not been this happy with a device in a long time. For me personally there is no doubt that the Xoom serves my need better than the iPad 2 would. If your company uses Google apps like mine does than it is truly a no brainer.

    Best thing to show an iPad owner: A video that someone loaded onto Facebook
