Without a word of a lie I swear there was a lady asking for EITHER an abacus or an iPad on one of the local Facebook groups the other day, and was apparently unconcerned about which it was to be.

I vote Samsung tablet. Although I'm a Samsung fan boy.

MacBook Pro 13 inch, 2 TB external hard drive and a HDMI cable. If the budget stretches a cellular IPad mini and $5 monthly Cellcard XG for outside. Okay I'm an Apple fan I admit it.

I sincerely hope you're not serious.

Apple make great products, I don't think anyone disputes that.

But as ricecakes on that eastern European forum says, over-priced. Big time.
Jesus loves you...Mexico is great, right? ;)

Apple products are expensive, but they are extremely well constructed and extremely sexy. Software is easy to use and abundant. It just works. It's stable. It's sexy. Did I say that yet? The only qualm I have is the lack of customization which I know Android devices offer.

Yes, if by expensive you mean horribly overpriced. (IMO)

Edit: sorry, I see vlad has already made this point.
