Quote: I need a phone - and if I need a laptop, then why buy an iPad?
That's fair enough, Geoff. In that case, no need for an iPad.
And Apple probably don't care one bit - as long as you buy Apple.
But, given the choice of an iPhone 6/6+, an iPad or a MacBook to surf the net and do email - I'll reach for the iPad every time.
That's just me, though.
