Re: As I have said a million times
"The one thing iPads do still have going for them is that they are one of the very few tablets to have a usefully-shaped screen."
There is another thing, and it is actually the reason I bought an iPad (Mini 4) rather than any other sort of tablet: it's more or less compatible (usually more), from an apps point of view, with my iPhone.
It means I can download an app on my phone, and the tablet picks up a copy of the app automatically (unless it's a phone-only app).
"liked the screens"
Yeah, the iPads have *nice* screens.
