Advise Please - Considering Apad or Epad

Banned 55
Found 10th Oct 2010
So my teenage son wanted an Ipad, i refused to pay the price. He now wants to get an "Apad or Epad" i assume this is a cheaper version judgeing by the ones i am following on ebay, made in china.

He wants it for the following reasons:
1) watch catch up tv
2) browsing
3) you tube
4) games
6) streaming
5) and to try act cool

as anyone got one that can shed me some feedback?

do they work over wifi? are they realible? whats the irobot? whats the benefits and negatives?

I personally would upgrade our netbook or laptop, howeveri think this may just be a novelty item, hence i am trying to talk him out of it and any views anyone as who as purchased one would be most welcomed.

thank you so much

lol nooo - i am happy a 14 year old boy prefers to stay in with his dear old mum rather then go out with his mates everyday of the week causing havoc upon our estate like a majority of boys and girls his age.

Mate, not even crimbo yet.


Op if you guys do live on an estate that you mentioned was a little rough then you might as well create another thread for apps to find a stolen aPad/ePad/iPad/oPad/uPad.

Cause you'll need it in about a week.

I'll revise my earlier advice due to new information.

Kill him. He's a bad egg. Cut your losses now.

If you cant afford the quality, don't bother.

Say NO for once.

whos incharge u or ur son? even if money isnt an issue u should try setting a better example mum. encourage ur kid to commnicate less digitally. it`ll do him good in the long run.

If you cant afford the quality, don't bother.



This

And ignore the people regarding what he has already, they are jealous that you can afford your child decent gadgets.

But if he has a Netbook + Laptop, sell one or both and get an iPad with the money, no need for all three.

lol a bubbleboy!!

i really think the answer no is your best bet here, or like another person said if youve got all this money to waste just wait till crimbo

Yeah exactly OP - sell summit and get the quality gold.

This forum is populated by people who shop at home bargains - what would they know about ipads?!?!?!? They'd get kicked out of an apple store.

You should be listening to people like me - Im posting this on my own iPad. It actually works properly unlike the next tablet, apad, epad and whatever else the Chinese have dreamed up today.

ok slightly worried with your involvement within this thread and upon your opinions within being a parent, one must not be judged to be considered, does that even make any logic sense within your so called parential skills and upbringings.

for your understanding, my two son's both play sunday football, engage with school activities and work hard upon there studies. I am certainly proud of them both and should one choose to pay them a luxury item why must we need a explaination to keep our loved ones with a smile upon their face and a step within there walk.

i am not saying my parent skills are that which will suit with yours, however it works for me and my sons do well at school and never been in trouble...as of yet.

i didnt asdk for your advise on raising kids, i asked for your advise upon the related matter, however start your own thread and even write your own book that would be fantastic.

thank you

That's a crazy opinion you got there.

You have no idea what kind of Mum she is, and I'm sure she is a brilliant one.

What she buys for her child is irrelevant to this, if I'm making x amount of money and I had a kid I'd buy them something awesome all the time, period.

Get him one of the newer version ones with faster cpu & will run flash & youtube, average £150 bin but if you watch loads of auctions & be patient for a good while you'll pick one up from between £110-130.
Like this one, Ebay: 190442072843

why not sell his netbook and use towards the ipad? or offer to pay a %
i personally think its a good investment
