    I'm looking at getting an iPad or equivalent. I want to use it to play videos and movies mostly. I plan to mount it on my treadmill so that I can watch videos while on the treadmill.

    1) How much memory do (or can) they have?

    2) Do any models have a hard drive?

    3) Are they fast enough to play videos or movies without jerky movement?

    4) Do they play movies using full screen? Is it clear and sharp?

    5) Are you happy with your iPad?

    6) I assume they have Wi-Fi (not cell) built in but need confirmation.

    7) Does the iPad require any contracts or monthly fee, to use Wi-Fi? Or can I buy one and be done with Apple?

    I don't own an iPad but from what I do know and have heard:
    1 - the newer iPad 2 comes in versions with 16gb, 32gb and 64gb. I don't think you can upgrade the memory.
    2 - they don't have a hard drive.
    3 - people seem to think they do a great job playing movies
    4 - I don't know the answer to this.
    5 - people seem to love their iPads.
    6 - they have WiFi
    7 - they don't require a fee to use WiFi

    I'll answer # 4.

    It depends on the aspect ration of the movie. If it is the same as the iPad screen it will be full screen. If not, then you'll see some letterboxing.

    If the movie is good quality, then the video you see will be clear and sharp.
