For music the iPad rules at present, however for everything else Android is cheaper and way better than Apple.

iTunes is a lock in system, so unless you really need it, avoid it like the plague.

Finally remember youre paying Apple for the design, performance wise you can get the same for a third of the price. (As with all Macs)

Warning: iPads and iPhones have been heavily targeted by hackers, so make sure you have the latest version (And updates) to prevent loss of personal information.

Hope this helps
