    Default iPad or Andriod

    Hi Guys

    Looking at getting a tablet to replace my ageing laptop.

    I only really use the laptop for browsing the internet and some storage. The laptop still works but is a pain to get out and set up although I will if required.

    I am thinking of getting either an iPad 2 16Gb WiFi or an andriod

    I currently have an iPhone 4S and am ok with the operation and like the layout etc.

    Never used anything andriod before so can't really relate to it

    the current cost price of the iPad 2 is £329 and this would be the max I would be looking to spend. I have looked around at various laptops as well. My current laptop is very under used and the only thing I would see as a plus is the fact that it can use USB devices and the storage capacity

    Any advice is welcome

    Neil

    iPad 2's are on eBay through ebuyer's page for 299 mate. If you're happy with the iPhone's setup you can use third party apps to transfer files onto the ipad itself the Same way. I'm loving my iPad for browsing the net and it's so much easier than a laptop....

    Won't my apps get transfered by iTunes if I am going to use the same iTunes account on both iPhone and iPad?

    Yup, backup iPhone, connect iPad then restore iPad from backup. All games will be transferred with progress along with all other apps that can be used...

    Only universal apps will be transferred I would have thought. Some apps have a separate iPad version.

    I believe you can pick up a refurb ipad2 from Argos outlet or apple for about £280
