Since the ipad came out to the market a lot of years ago I was thinking to buy a new one, but unfortunately until now I did not have one. I really like to have one, but I was always waiting for the price to come down. It is not that I cannot afford to buy one, but I though in a few years the apple would down the price. If I have one right now, I probably buy alesis io dock for my ipad, but I do not have one yet so I have to wait. My son is waiting for me to have one so that he can play games with it. I cannot wait to have one.
