Next month my young family and I will be travelling on a well deserved holiday. Unfortunately this involves a 7 hr drive... To help preserve the sanity of my wife and I, we are thinking of buying an iPad mini or similar android device. A 1st gen mini is available for £275 with education discount (inc 35 iTunes voucher, good enough for the kids), a 32 gig 2nd gen (better for me and my wife) for 455 (inc 35 iTunes voucher) or a recon 32 gig 2nd gen for 409 (without 35 iTunes voucher). Alternatively a kindle fire hd (160 for 16gig) "would do" for the holiday. My wife would prefer I buy the most affordable option but accepts I prefer the Apple ecosystem. Note, later this year I will be buying an iPhone 6 to replace my 4 and I would also like to buy myself a 2nd gen air or 3rd gen mini. Opinions please!
