Birthday present dilema, can he really be right?

  My birthday is August 5th. I am trying to decide what I would like. I thought I had it all figured out but now Dh has me doubting myself. I like gadgets but then seem to not use them much. Dh likes to point this out & I then get to remind him that he is the same way.
  I have the original nook but don't use it all that often. I use it more now that I added the app to my iPhone. I wanted a Keurig for Christmas. It really is not geared towards someone like me because I am not a coffee drinker. The last thing I wanted was my karaoke machine. It is not getting used as much as I would like either.
  That now leads me to my newest want. I want an iPad with 3g capability. I have a lap top & desk top but want a tablet computer. I want to be able to walk wherever I want to be without lugging around the weight of a laptop. My nook has Internet capability, so does my iPhone.
  Dh worries that I will not like it as well I think. He says it is like having my iPhone be the size of my Nook. We are looking to upgrade to the new iPhone that is coming out this fall. He said there are things I still will not be able to do. I know it does not support Flash & I am not sure what else.
  I have tried to ask what others think of theirs but you gt mixed reviews just like with anything else. I really want to be sure before we lay down over $900 for it. I am going to pay for 1/2 of it with gift cards I have from Target (this was my suggestion, he has no problem paying for it all). He suggested we save the money & get me a Mac laptop which I know I don't want.
  I am now not sure what I want at all & it is driving me nuts. I just don't want to get it & then have to admit my Dh was right. That is not what I want for my 34th birthday haha

  2. The problem with that is I would spend the whole time taking care of a 4 month old. That does not sound like a lot of fun to me

  4. hi - hopping over from Monday Monkey hop and I'm a new follower.
    You know - all the gadgets out now-a-days get me so confused. I'm a bit behind on all the new technology. My mom has more gadgets than I do. That just seems backwards.lol Hope you figure it out - it is a big decision because things ain't cheap.

  12. Oh man if I had the choice to get a MAC I sure would... I am drooling just THINKING about it...

    Why not get a cheaper ipad? Don't they have them for like $600?

    Either way, good luck. :)

  13. Sadie,
    The thing is I don't want another lap top. I was going for the largest memory & I know I want 3G.
