I have succumbed . . . .

 . . .Yep, I gave myself an early Christmas present and got an iPad.

When the iPad first came out, I originally said ''There simply is no need for them, just use your phone/laptop''. After spending much time outweighing the pros and cons, I am eating humble pie as I now own one myself.

The reason why I got this was solely for my holiday in the new year (will be blogging about this in due course). When I have been on holiday in the past, my hand luggage is always rammed with books, magazines, puzzle books, to the point where my bag is just under the weight allowance, but too bulky often making it difficult to find travel documents and etc. So I have decided to wave 'Buhbye' to paper nonsense, and get this gadget.

I have had it just over 3 weeks, and so far it has proven to be quite good. What I like most about the iPad is how fast it is; web pages loads incredibly quick (better than my laptop), playing games on a larger scale makes for eye straining not so bad, and reading books is a lot nicer than paperback. The screen is incredibly sharp (no fuzziness), and everything is just nice and clear. 

I am still trying to figure some things out but so far I am happy with it. I am however now on the hunt for a cool, funky case . . . so if you have seen some cases which are of a reasonable price, feel free to let me know.

I'd be inclined to say if you are thinking about treating yourself to one, then definitely go for it. 

Hope you are all well.

Stay warm!

      It really is a good lil gadget. I say (if it's not too late) persuade your folks/family to get you one :).
