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 you’re 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
Live entertainment, Real Ale, Great Scenery, Great Beaches, why would anyone want to live anywhere else (Iï¿½m definitely staying put).
