Right. I'm looking for some outside opinion.
As most of you will be aware my Uncle recently passed away after losing a battle with Dementia. While this was expected what I didn't expect was the following: My parents telling me he left me £1000 in his will. That's more or less what's happened. (It's slightly more complicated then that but come January 2012 I'm being given a grand)
This came to my attention today when my Mum dragged me into an Apple store and asked me what kind of ipad 2 I wanted...which was kind of strange having never asked for one before (she saw me using my Uncles a while back)
After a slight chat on the side and apologises given to the eager looking employee who could smell a sale we left. She thought I might want one because I don't have a laptop and generally just have my PC. So basically what I need from you guys is some input. I've got this money and while I don't need to spend it per say there are a couple of things I wanted to do. So basically:
1. Is an ipad a decent replacement for a laptop?
2. Is it even worth getting a laptop these days?
3. Do I even need an ipad? (I think if I'm asking that question that I know the answer tbh)
4. Considering buying a new PC Rig but can I get a new rig, an extra monitor AND a new desk for £1000 / £1100?
Thoughts? Cheers all x
