Been offered the new iPad 2 32GB for £279

for working for the Daily Mail and General Trust Plc. The money would come directly out of my next pay packet.

Anyone else work for them and gone for it? Seems a no brainer to me.

I would go for it. Great price

Excellent deal.

Even if you didnt want it you'd get near to RRP.

We use a couple of iPads at work but I've never seen the need to own one myself. If I did, I'd probably only use it for watching films whilst travelling and for the wi-fi. Very tempting to sell it but I know the company would frown upon it!

Go for it, great price. You could always sell for a profit if you don't get on with it.

You could try being discreet about it

The company would never know, and you have paid for it with your own money so they can't do anything about it.
I love my ipad1, ideal for me and I use it everyday. If I was offered one at that price, and a 32GB 3G at that, I'd snap it up if I could.

There are approx 50 employees in my company, 2 got the iPads. Unfortunately, I was not one of them

I can't believe someone is owning up to working for the Daily Mail.

I don't work for the Daily Mail and if you think there are only 50 employees who work for the Daily Mail, you are sadly mistaken.

1000 employees were randomly selected from those who expressed an interest in having one. Actually turns out 3 people got them in our company.

They'll be 3 managers then I bet!
