Basically my 2nd gen touch (Which i've for nearly 3 years exactly) has absolutely had it, and is in dire need of a replacement, plus my library has grown considerably in size since then, amazon have got the latest 32gb touch for £210 ($265 give or take), and im very tempted to invest, recently however, i've become interested getting an ipad 2 32b refurbished, which is double the price, However, for the second year of my course (currently a first year studying auto design), im going to need a macbook, as we'll be using a lot of design software (my current laptop can barely run PS elements), and although i have a part time job, im not exactly made of money. basically what im asking is, do i need all three, or can i just get away with an ipad? or should i even wait for the ipad 3? Bear in mind that: .I use my touch for listening to music, almost every day .I only use my latop for web browsing, checking email, downloading PDF's from tutors, and typing up some word documents .Im also going to be traveling alot more in the new year, so i'll be on the go quite alot, also watching tv shows and movies and apps will be a big factor. I hope to use your feedback to help me consider buying one, as i've been to my local premium reseller, and tried to get a sales assistants opinion, but all he did was shrug his shoulders and said i should just get all three (not helpful).
