    due out in the next 6-8 weeks! It’s said to have a higher resolution screen, a better camera and a faster processor.

    Thanks Sagar,

    Re: The Ipad Decision….

    I love the Raspberry Pi :http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-17190918
    £20 worth of computer and it is all there. You can use it for email and minimal tasks no problem, but it also has a ton of funtionality: http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2012/02/five-things-you-can-bake-into-your-brand-new-raspberry-pi/

    Working with the Ipad you could use it as a network drive, so you could plug an external harddrive into it and access all your music and movies wirelessly through the ipad. Can also use it as a low power, stand alone torrent server.

    Was only released yesterday, I was not in time to get one as they sold out but there will be a larger production run of them soon :)

    This sounds superb. love the idea.

    Confirms what we have all believed for ages, that we have been paying way
    over the top for computers for many years.

    Wow, Thanks Chagrin.

    If I can access my 1 TB external hard drive this will solve most of the problems.

    That is on my question list when I go to the Aple Store, and can it be plugged into my tv for streaming movies etc.

    the 7th is just the Launch date.

    US release has not even been announced let alone the UK.

    I think we will have plenty of time to “salivate”

    Re: The Ipad Decision….

    Has 4G but battery life is still 10 hours.

    It still has the Home Button.

    9.4mm thick 1.4 pounds weight.

    No mention of Siri yet.

    5MP Camera.

    and the biggy…….

    No Price increase, rumours were £ 80 extra.

    New IPhoto App, with Photo Journal and Photo Beaming device to device ??

    iCloud integration.

    same size models though 16, 32 and 64. You obviously are being guided to
    iCloud and Air Play everything.

    No Thunderbolt / SD / USB.

    Seems you have decided ! It is just when and where.

    The pricing gives another conundrum.

    Now the price on the iPad 2 is reduced to £ 329

    Re: The Ipad Decision….

    Being Hypercritical……

    No Siri, No Flash support, No SD/USB, No enhanced touchscreen.

    They have vastly improved all the existing features though and it is
    now head aqnd shoulders the best tablet.

    Virtually the only new feature is the Voice dictation.

    That really helps me with my keyboard problems with my mD hands but is
    one new feature enough ??

    Rumours that this is just an upgrade, the next quantum leap iPad is in October.

    Re: The Ipad Decision….

    We know for iPods and iPhones that whatever the current ne on sale has, there is a newer one in the wings waiting to pop out. I do not really want to wait for the next next next iPad to come out.

    I have sort of decided, the last test is getting my grubby mitd on one and seeing if I like how it feels and if I can use it the way I want to .. if thats a go then to the checkout to melt my credit card I go, lol.

    Re: The Ipad Decision….

    Argos reduced the price on iPad2 by 70 pounds on Monday. So it is 329 now or 399 on March 16th.

    Getting a dry run at holding it is vital. Picked up somone elses Archos tablet the other day and it
    would have been just too heavy and slihtly cumbersome to be a feasible option.
