I must admit I was an apple-phobe before buying my IPad 2 in November 2011. As my first apple product I had to have a master class from my sister which seemed easy enough.
To be honest I think I am still finding things out about how it works now!
The price is what was expected of an apple product I suppose. I saved up for 5 months after deciding to purchase one and I paid £399 for the 16gb.
I purchased the ipad2 in black and looks wise it is presented really well.
The size and weight of the iPad is ideal for even a small handbag and easy to quickly take out when going through airport security. It's not small enough for you to lose awareness of it which is good for me as I treated it like a baby when I travelled!
The video quality is best in natural light as I have found that photos and videos taken in doors have not been as great and can come out as dull and blurred. I have some great videos from out side at just before dawn of some dancing and the video quality is amazing and it has two cameras which you can easily switch between.
It also came in handy when making a video with children.
The iPad's ease of use came in hand when working with children in Africa. Within seconds they could listen to music, take photos and try to read my emails!
The durability of the ipad2 is ideal for a dropper like me! I have 'accidentally' dropped, bumped, spilled on and it only bears a few scratches on the back of the device and none on the screen at all.
After a year of having it the button sticks a bit but it has been in rural Africa to dusty Eastern Europe so after a small clean with a spare tooth brush it un sticks easily.
The FaceTime app and the messages app allows you to call and text to any apple device for free and within seconds. The FaceTime quality is very good, the connection, sound and picture quality is reliable even with low wii fi signal.
Even when you are on the move without wii fi then you can download many apps to keep you well read for free and well entertained. The battery life is excellent and with some tips and tricks you can make it last for a good 10 hour trip when using it constantly by closing back ground apps.
With the iPad, which I bought in an apple store, I received a charger cable and plug with a manual with useful information. The great thing about purchasing straight from apple is their customer service. It would have been useful to receive a set of headphones with the iPad as well.
To conclude I am very impressed with my first apple purchase and I am never without it because of how easy it is to carry and lightweight in even a small handbag. If you buy the right cover then it is discreet enough to hide in your bag. The iPad cases and covers online are much cheaper than the ones in store.
The iTunes is always something I have struggled to use and I am still learning how to work it properly, though.
Even though the iPad was a lot of money compared to other tablets, I would recommend this to travellers especially as all you need is wii fi and you are connected to loved ones the world over.
Summary: Excellent product with up to date technology. Incredibly easy to take everywhere with you.
