    Advice please re tablets

    Hi all, 40mm's other half here. I'm after a tablet and wondered does anyone have any advice? My mum has a Samsung which seems pretty good. I wondered if this deal below is any good? Thanks in advance for your help. Cheers, Alicia

    go buy new, 2nd hand computer gear is nothing but issues
    unless you buy it from someone you trust and the warranty is still valid.

    you have three options really an apple one an android one or a windows based one.....
    get whichever suits the purpose you intend to use it for as they all have + and - to them and software you want to run will need to be compatible.
    as with a computer get one with as much ram and storage as you can afford and make sure it will take an sd card.

    Quite possibly better off saving an extra 200 off dollars and getting an iPad. Check price spy and price me. They'll have the cheapest price and where to get it.

    Thank you. Would you recommend a refurbished one from 1-Day? They come with a 12 month warranty.

    Sorry also I should have mentioned: I really only want it for taking and viewing photos. Maybe the odd email here and there.

    iPad will likely last longer. My first lasted about 6-7 years, now on my second. Work out well given they tend to give a good few years service, and just simply work. Less faffing about than others.

    True that I have just replaced an iPad after eleven years and it was still working well so have passed it on

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Depends on what was fixed and how cheap it is.

    I think for the peace of mind knowing that its brand new and has support from Apple I'd buy a new one.

    There's a limited amount of things that can go wrong on an iPad and one day would probably buy them by the container load from who knows where. So you question what's a "refurbished" iPad and who did it.
