    Hi all. I'm thinking of buying an iPad 2 for Christmas. Only thing that puts me off is I'd still need a laptop so I can use the printer and put in DVDs etc. As the iMac is expensive and you need a mortgage to buy one, would you say still get the iPad 2 or stick with the laptop? Basically pros and cons?

    Only if you have a printer that allows this, by use of the apps. I don't!

    I am yes. But I'd like to completely move away from windows. The iMac is one expensive piece of kit though so it looks like the iPad 2 as the consolation price!

    Bought it today with a smart cover. £458 in total for the two. That's my beer money gone for the next few weeks. What will the girls do without me being out? (Laughs out loud)

    Ha ha roughly yes. That's Friday & Saturday nights for 2 weekends. Manchester city centre a pint is roughly £3.50. So £450 is about right 😜

    Buy the iPad you will love it and a wireless printer. Buy a cheap PC for DVD's. Apple gives you free updates, so you
    are always running the latest software.

    Bought it yesterday. And I have a wireless printer but not a compatible one for the apps that use wireless printing. So I may look into that next.

    Yeah I got the 16gb wifi only one in black. I think 16gb will be enough. Well I'm hoping it's enough (laughs out loud).

    Thanks for the info newdestinyx. I have the hp wireless printer but I'm unable to air print via my iPhone 4 so thought this would be the same with the iPad. What route do you have to take to get it to air print and I'll try it? If you don't use your MacBook any more can I have it (laughs out loud)
