Saying “words cannot describe how I feel for this device,” Oprah Winfrey on Monday gave each of her 275 studio audience members an Apple (AAPL) iPad.

It was the No. 1 item in the final “favorite thing” give-away segment in Oprah’s final season.

The retiring talk-show host said the iPad was her all-time favorite, and the audience seemed to appreciate the gift. But they were even more pleased to receive a free car: a 2012 Volkswagen Beetle.
