Apple iPad 2 Wi-Fi 32 GB
Advantages: Excellent quality, great apps, sound excellent
Disadvantages: Price and no flash player
I decided to treat myself to an iPad a few months back and haven't looked back since, what a piece of kit! I owned an iPhone and an iPod touch 1st gen before buying my iPad and wasn't sure if it was worth buying. I was totally wrong, the iPad is a life changer for sure! (cheesy but true :p)
The iPad is a much larger screen and provides amazing quality with its graphics! I am really impressed with it. Apps on the iPhone are good, but when you play them on the iPad it takes it to a new level. Apple have created a master piece.
The sound quality that comes out of the iPad is far better than I thought would be possible from its small speakers. You can sit around for hours listening to music from it! Also when using I player or itv player, the quality of image produced on the screen is outstanding. The iPad is so good that now I hardly even use my laptop, they take forever to turn on! The iPad is different, it only takes a few seconds to load up and your away.
The use of safari (Internet browser) is excellent. It is fast and responsive and much easier to use than a computer. I love how you can zoom in and out and it's is so easy to scroll around the page. The only downside to the iPad is that you cannot watch flash videos on web pages. This can be annoying at times, but only a very small downside to the browsing experience. Most things you can't do on the browser, you can find in the app store. So not too much to worry about.
I think 32gb is just about the correct size for the iPad. I have over 2000 songs and apps and movies and I have only used 21gb. I have thousands of photos stored on here to show family and friends. It's perfect.
The iPad is lightweight so you can carry it around with you in your bag or rucksack. I always take it on the train or bus because you can pass the time very quickly. Make sure you insure your iPad because I'm sure you would be devasted to break it or lose it :(
The iPad feels great to hold, it doesn't ache your arms holding it and the keypad you use to type and send emails or write stuff is excellent. I prefer the touch screen keypad to my laptop now. Once you get the hang of it you can use it really quickly and fast and it is excellent to type with! You will find it strange swapping from the iPad keypad to the keyboard on your laptop because the feel of it is completely differernt.
The camera on the iPad is of good quality and is great for using FaceTime when your in a wifi zone. I always face time friends from my iPad instead of my iphone because you can see them better and the overall quality of face timing on iPad is better! You can also iMessage friends for free on the iPad, do the days of spending hundreds of pounds texting is now gone!
The best thing about the iPad is that you can make it your own. You can download any apps you want! I would recommend you download pages, this will allow you to create word documents. When going abroad the iPad is brilliant too, I took it to Majorca with me last month and it was great, I watched movies on the plain and used it I'm the hotel room with there free wifi, I kept in touch with what was going on back home. It is great for that.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants something to have on there laps in front of the tele of to pass the time. Any age can use it. The elderly would not struggle to use it, they are very easy to set up and the screen is large, apple are very helpful when setting them up if you don't understand. Also the battery life on this is amazing, it lasts ages even when using all the time. Lasts so much longer than a laptop! Really impressed with this!
I'm so happy with my iPad, none of the other tablets on the market quite compare to this piece of kit. I did look around at other tablets, but they were far from satisfactory.
iPads are very expensive, but you pay for there quality! So I say give it a try and you will not be disappointed at all. It's the best gadget I have ever bought. Hardly touch my iPod touch anymore. Even if you have an IPhone I still recommend you get one of these!
Thanks for reading :)
Summary: Unbeatable tablet, best around. Give it a try, you will love it.
