Oh lordy - this might be another apple Vs windows debate.....
We need to get a second computer in the house as both kids will soon have more homework than I ever imagined they would have and I don't want the arguments which will inevitably occur when they both need to use the one computer at the same time (it will happen - I'm stunned at how much is being dished out!)
My son's birthday is coming up and he has said he wants an iPad (my immediate reaction: 'Ha! No way jose!') but on reflection (and comparing prices of laptops with windows home and a base iPad) would this solve the problem of dual homework pile-up? Can you reliably construct word-, excel- and powerpoint- type documents on an ipad?
Any thoughts on this would be greatfully received - but please don't descend into a slanging match between OS types!
