Re: 2000 quid? So they could watch movies on it.
Um, no. You buy the basic iPad for £300 for that, or the 10" Pro for £600.
The £2000 clearly has a LOT more to it which most of us don't need. But for those who do, I guess it's worth the price.
The MS Surface is a far better use for your £2k though in my view, if you really want/need a powerful, ultraportable device. That's a small but significant market for people who spend their time out in the field or travelling.
