So i've been considering a budget tablet and now it's time to consider a not so budget Tablet. Had a first play with an Ipad today in Currys. Was very nice. Very impressed by how responsive the screen was and how easy it was to navigate around with the swipe of a finger. I'm going to be travelling on and off over the next few months and really want to take a tablet instead of my laptop (too big/heavy/can't hide it easily). I'm aware that Apple like to do things their way so i've listed below 5 things that i'd want to do on a tablet. Appreciate it if you owners out there could confirm whether these are possible. After reading various threads about Ipad3 soon, maybe getting an Ipad 1 s/h is an options so would my 5 requests work ok on that model? 1. Surf Web (BBC/Online Banking/Daily Telegraph/Lonely Planet/Ryanair etc etc + general other websites). I used the Safari browser earlier today and it appeared that you could have multiple tabs open (sure I read that this wasn't possible) as I opened up the BBC and Ebay. I also clicked the main button at the bottom to go back to the front screen, then Safari again and it remembered the websites so does this mean that you can surf (say online banking) hide the Safari, do something else for a few secs then go back to Safari and continue your online banking? 2. Play Videos (possibly some music files too). Usual stuff like AVI files. They would be on say a USB memory stick. Aware that there's no USB on the Ipad but i've read there's an adaptor so you can connect USB/SD Card to the Ipad. Would it handle 720 Video files or just Standard Def. I play all my stuff on my laptop with VLC and i've seen there's a VLC app for the Ipad. 3. Emails. I saw briefly that there was an email section so would this cover my 2 email scenarios, Hotmail and my own private email (have my own domain) which i'd like to either view emails or have them downloaded Outlook style. 4. Office Documents. Whether it be full on Office 2010 Excel and Word files or possibly (i could convert down) Office 2007 or even still, the basic Works files (again spreadsheet and word files). Would be nice to edit these but just viewing them would suffice at a push. I guess there is some programmes/apps that allow me to do basic calculations/record numbers/financial transactions and keep tabs on my spending etc etc. 5. Can't actually think of the 5th now so the above should do it! Many thanks.
