So I won a Apple Ipad through my work, and I am trying to figure out what to do.

So I won an apple Ipad at my place of employment, but I have to pay 40% tax to claim it.
Meaning by "winning" it is going to cost me $200.00

For those that care it's model MD510LL/A

As a company I tend to hate apple, they are a company that makes it living off patenting anything that could be used to "beat them" and have an EXTREMELY aggressive stance against even remotely similar technology (see apple vs samsung).

Now I will never be caught dead with an apple computer, or most other apple products. Their computers are overpriced pieces of crap that allow no customization or ability to upgrade.

I do not however dismiss the ipad in the same way. Many times I have told myself that if I had to have ONE apple product it would be the ipad. Of course I was never willing to pay the $500.00 price tag to actually acquire one.

What I am looking for is REAL opinions on whether an apple tablet is worth keeping (I don't own any tablets up to this point, just laptops and desktops) And not people that are just going to blindly follow whatever technology apple happens to release next.

My options are as follows, I keep the ipad at the cost of $200.00 and bite the bullet and start actually using an apple product.

OR

I return the completely sealed unopen package to walmart or target for a nice chunk of change of $500.00.

I am really at ends as to what to do here, so any opinions would be appreciated.

Sell it to someone for quick cash or give it away to a family member as a gift.

It really boils down to do you want a tablet? I see no reason to own one my desktop serves my day to day needs and pretty much every phone that's not 5 years old these days has a functional browser.

Do this and then get what you want... unless what you want is an iPad, though if that were the case you wouldn't have made this topic.

If you want a tablet then nothing really touches the iPad. If you don't want a tablet then you should sell it but getting any other tablet would be a downgrade.
