    Hi All,

    Was just wondering how many of you were in the same boat as me. I own an iPhone 4 (which I'll upgrade to the iPhone 5/6 this year), and a 2010 Macbook Pro.

    I'd like an iPad to surf the web in bed and the like, but I by no means NEED an iPad, and spending £399 on something which is a nice to have, but what I don't need is too much, especially when I know i'll be forking out £500 for an iPhone later this year. iPhone is more worth a brand new spanking model to me, as I use it most hours of every day for TomTom, web surfing, wikipedia reading, phonecalls, facetime, messaging, texting and email - and I find the iPhone 4 struggles with the amount of use I give it, using TomTom for directions while listening to music and controlling what's playing via voice control, soon makes it slow as a snail, but anyway I digress!

    So I'm curious about how much the iPad 2 is going to cost in the UK (currently no way of telling as the UK store is still down), and how much the iPad 2 Refurbished will cost too. If it's around £200-250, I'll be tempted to order one as that's a price I'm more happy paying for something that I'm not sure exactly how i'll use it until I get it. Sure the retina display is nice, but my MBP doesn't have a retina display and that doesn't exactly bother me, sure the better cameras are nice, but I don't think it's going to replace my iPhone as my camera regardless, and LTE? well I'd probably get the Wi-Fi model anyway, and LTE is currently useless in the UK.

    Anyone else feel the same way?
