Thanks for that have just bought it. It looks really handy. Will make do with iPad (sharing with dh will be hard confused) for the moment and save for a laptop think it may come in handy for school work.

Oh and I have a net book for spreadsheets and word typing. It gets used infrequently too.

I have a n adapter to upload photos from my camera to my iPad. like this and a wireless printer. We very rarely use the PC now.i can see us not replacing it when it decides to die!

I'd go for a laptop over a tablet every time. I find tablets really difficult to type on.

My lovely dcs managed to push the laptop over while open and now the screen shakes every few seconds. I really only have about £200 to spend at the moment and thought I might be better off buying a cheap tablet and forgetting about a laptop. My dh uses the laptop for the Internet while I use my ipad, we also use the laptop to type occasional personal letters, very basic spreadsheets and to upload photos from my camera but I usually use my phone for photos now. If I get a wireless printer and cheap tablet I could probably do everything I need apart from photo upload (but could do this at work) and photo storage. I know i could get the screen repaired but it is six years old, only 180gb of hard drive,keys that don't work etc. what do people suggest am I better saving a bit extra and getting a laptop.
