My buddy just bought his first tablet, he got an iPad mini. His main purpose is to be able to FaceTime with his family now that he has a new kid. I wanted to drop 2 tips here about buying an iPad or any tablet for that matter.
1. If you can afford it get a 4G enabled iPad. I have had both a wifi only and a wifi and 4G enabled (mine is from AT&T and their LTE is FAST), there’s no question, if you can afford the 4G enabled you should go for it if you plan to take your iPad out of the house.
2. Get a keyboard if you plan on working on it or even just doing email. I prefer the Zagg keyboards and that’s what my buddy got. I’ve had 2 of them over the years and they’re both solid. One thing to consider is if you want it to protect the back of the tablet and also I highly suggest getting one with a hinge. You want it to open and close like a laptop so you can set the screen at any angle.
These are just a few suggestions that I shared the other day with a friend and wanted to impart to you. What do you think?
