I thought i'd give it a go, i've not had an iPad before as I have an iPhone and an MBA I never really saw too much use for me personally in having another gadget - as much as I like the idea of it. However, My OH's ancient Dell laptop gave up the ghost the other day and bless her she still struggles on with it, but she's never really had any desire to own gadgets like iPhones or the like and makes do. Unitl the other day she'd tried out her friends iPad and said how cool she thought it was and would get one if she could afford it. So yesterday I thought for the price they were offering them in the refurb store (£289) I would surprise her with an iPad to replace her old laptop. Fingers crossed she likes it!!! (if not i'm sure I will ) Has anybody else just taken advantage of the refurb iPads?
