Ok, well i finally decided to take the side of apple! I come from android and am tired of it. I decided now would be a good time to get my first apple product as the new iPad is coming out. Now that we have a pretty solid announcement date and specs, i can start to get really hyped about this lol. On to my question... I have 1000 dollars to work with on my first iPad, no more... Now here is the issue, i want to get the 64GB wifi only (or 128GB if it is offered and replaces 64GB price line, i personally dont really expect it but hey ima dreamer ) so I'm out 700 right there. Now, would you all suggest getting apples 2 year plan thing for 70 dollars?? Or should i get a third party to insure it? I do have a local apple store very nearby. Insurance is a for sure, as all my electronics are insured. Its just a personal preference and makes me feel better. So now were at 770 give or take. My main goal for this is to use it for taking notes at school and other school stuffs. Should i use the remaining funds to get the wireless keyboard? or get a smart cover (if still supported) and some sort of simple clear hard back? At the moment i was thinking the case and cover... As i think i could just use the screen for a bit till i can raise some funds for the keyboard later... That and i would feel better protecting my toy as much as possible even if its minimal to start. Can anyone share with me how hard it is to quickly take notes using the screen? I need to keep up with lectures and what not. Or just any suggestion you guys might have on better spending my budget limit. Like i said, i only have 1000 i cant shell out anymore without leaving my comfort zone (and i really really really don't wanna). Any help yall can provide is greatly appreciated! I'm so excited to finally own one of these magic machines!
