>£2000 quid gets El Reg another clickbait headline
Agree, from having used iPads in business since the iPad2, I've not really found it necessary to have huge amounts of memory and cellular modem. However, I note that if you want the full configuration: pencil, keyboard folio cover and the HDMI adaptor then you'll be adding a little under £400 to that headline price...
However, given the target market, the offered 2 year Applecare T&C's do seem rather restrictive compared to say Dell's 4-year next business day all risks cover.
