Buy yourself an iPad...
I am not joking, the latest update (the 4th generation, even if they seem to have dropped the progressive numbering of releases for apparently no reason, as it is now much more confusing to tell the different generations apart) is finally very good as it puts together a wonderful screen (what the iPad 2 missed) with a very powerful CPU (what the iPad 3 missed) and a long lasting battery (which was never missing). Next step will be the reduction of weight and thickness (weight in particular is the most critical factor).
I think that the base 16 GB version is not that overpriced considering the top notch hardware that you get...while on the other hand the 100$/200$ increase for 32 GB and 64 GB versions are a complete rip-off, but the base version comes close to reasonable in terms of value.
To be honest, other than the rediculous pricing, I always liked the ipad. Not the lousy Apple infrastructure though. I dont like being locked into anything, and android allows freedom. If I dont like something I can choose something else, simple as that. Apple strangles you, its their way or the highway. The only way out is jailbreaking, and that eliminates one of the best reasons for owning an Apple product, its superior warranty. No thanks, Ill stick with choice
