Hi I've got an itch to scratch, but I don't know how to scratch it. I mainly use my iPad , at 57 i'm a light user, the odd document, one finance spreadsheet. I mainly read news, books , forums on the iPad, i guess what its meant for. I recently sold my Mac Mini and replaced it with a NAS that hosts all my media files, runs the house IP cameras etc. My other tool is my 13inch 2012 mac book pro, comes into use when i want to work on media files, supports my iTunes library and i get it out if I want to look at multiple websites at the same time as its just easier than using the iPad. So everything sync's nicely to iCloud, i also use an iPhone. So I guess i don't really need much of a desktop/laptop i don't do heavy things, just the odd thing an iPad can't do. So being in the UK this makes the apple products look really expensive for doing the odd thing. The itch is at some point do I buy another mac, or the the other option looked at is one of the Lenovo Mini's and install windows iCloud to ensure I have access to my files and a cheap desktop to do the odd things I need to do, or even a cheap laptop. Seems to be lots of unrest on the forum about Mac's price and performance. What supplements your iPad and which way would you go?
