Pros: Easy to use, setup, and has great versatility
Cons: Syncing is the iOS blessing or curse depending on how you set it up
iPad is a great buy, for most people this is all the computer you'll ever need. Syncing can be simple with one device and one computer, but when multiple accounts and computers are involved it can get confusing for the novice computer user. Bought this for my grandmother instead of an e-reader and she loves it.
