Apple Ipad you cannot connect any Hard Disk, anything you need you will have to download from Itunes.

If its Ipad 2 then you can insert Sim with 3g Internet if opted.

Else only Wifi is the way to go.

I would suggest you Wifi + 3G.

And the Ipad2 is lighter too, minimum go for 16 GB and above, as the space consumed by apps are more.

Galaxy tab is bit high on contrast and not to my liking, once you are used to apple products, nothing comes closer to Apple than any other competitor.

On the other hand Galaxy tab can accomodate a sim and can be used as phone too.

The photo clicking ability of Ipad too is good as well.

Visit Croma or Reliance stores for Live demo.

First check Ipad followed by Galaxy Tab, you will tilt to Apple Ipad.

Iam using a iPad 2 past 1 year and no android tablets can come close atall in terms of apps, the user experience .
What phone do you use ? If you use a iPhone or android and have wifi hotspot in it you can use a 3G data on the phone and connect your wifi only iPad and surf.
If budget is no problem I would suggest you to buy a MacBook air 11 inches which iam using too you will get full functionality of a laptop and footprint of a tablet.
But if you wish for the iPad I would suggest you to wait as the iPad 3 will launch soon with retina display and once that happens iPad 2 price will be reduced .
I strong suggest you to go for iPad rather then any android tablet as honeycomb is not atall stable like iOS . If it is possible for you to wait a little longer then windows 8 tablet will also be a great option .

Buddy go for the Apple Ipad. Its anytime better than the Galaxy 10.1 notepad. But also you can look for the Mac Book air. It's really awesome and light as well and almost the size of the ipad.

Pls do check the MacBook air too ,regarding iPad take all the tablets in chroma and use it side by side with iPad you will know the difference I will suggest you don't buy it yet as the retina display iPad 3 with a hd video recording will launch in a months time in the same price in which iPad 2 is selling and then iPad 2 price will be lowered by at least 5000 rs .
