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.


Hardware wise the Nexus 7 is damn good and very comparable. Software wise I'm not sure. I'm not an android user.

I really don't like apple products either but I was given an iPad as a hand me down and I use it occasionally. Its a good tablet.

It sucks you have to pay 200 tho, just don't buy apps or things on iTunes and you're not really getting sucked into the whole apple scam.
Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone.

That's about how much you'd pay the government if you won the lottery. It's a similar situation.

How it is a scam exactly?

I laughed at the "won an iPad, but have to pay $200 to get it."

I understand that is still a discount on one but for $200 you can get a Nexus 7.

I would either sell it and make some money or decline it altogether. I don't get how they decided on a 40% tax for a prize on a drawing.

Did you have to pay to be eligible? Like a raffle?

Scam or trap, I don't see how it is one.

If he doesn't like using apple products how is it not a trap to invest in apps tied to apple stores?

For 200 bucks, i'd recommend keeping it, jailbreaking it, and just having fun with it. You can still resell it for a profit. Being an Apple product it's resale value will keep for a while.
