    Anyone know about tablet gadgets? I'm looking at getting one and was staggered at the price of a decent Android one (all my kit is currently android) but saw that the current ipad (2017) is actually reasonably priced, for these things anyway.
    I've looked at it and although there will be a few inconveniences, I can fairly easily use an apple device in my android world; and yes reading this it does sound weird.

    ANyway, can anyone give a reasoned review of the ipad (around £240) or the Huawei mediapad M3 10 (around £215)? Ipad is generally accepted as the best but I want hands on opinions really

    I’ve had an IPad for a number of years and would definitely recommend it. I started off with an IPad 2 and bought an IPad 9.7 at Christmas. You can get a refurbished Ipad2 or IPad Mini on Wowcher for £99. Or an IPad Air for under £220 from ALL search results | DealBuyer (UK) Ltd

    Thanks for that - I'll take a look. During interwebbing these things it seems they may be releasing new versions by the end of the month so presumeably cheaper price for old versions soon!

      OK, thanks for that. If I get one it's almost certainly going to be the 2017 model or 2018 if its released and cheap enough!

      Any thoughts on the Huawei mediapad M3 10?

      Got back to this yesterday and bit the bullet ordering an iPad 128gb. Hope it works out!

        iPad has arrived and it’s all working really well. Few new things to learn as I’ve only known android but in honesty it’s no hardship. iPad seems to be integrating into my android kit easily so far so happy days :)

        I might also add that the hardware is as good as people say; I can’t see any comparably specced android device competing so very happy with the choice at £320

          I’ve had my iPad (air?) for a couple of years now. Still as fast as ever, and very easy to use (it needs to be!). I’m sure you’ll get on well with it :thumbsup:
