Every time I see one of Apple’s stunning iPad adverts, I truly struggle to resist the urge to go out and get me one. That’s despite the fact that I owned one briefly.
I was lucky that it was a free iPad that I’d claimed from Freebiejeebies. Even then, the simple fact is that however impressive a bit of kit the iPad is, there is no way that it will replace the iPhone (which I also got free!) and laptop combo that I have come to know and love.
If I’m in the home, then the laptop can do so much more than it’s tablet counterpart. Step outside and I have Apple’s number one smartphone to service my every need. It even makes calls and sends texts, why would I want to buy an iPad contract on a flimsy dongle!
Even as I write this there’s a bit of me that wants to run off to Freebiejeebies and claim another iPad free but I know that it would soon be back on eBay. The money would come in handy of course!
If anything, I will be stepping up my campaign to bag another free iPhone, maybe the iPhone 4S this time. That would make a nice Christmas gift to myself!
