    Hi, I've had mine for about 3 years and it's an iPad Air. It's actually lighter than my husband's which isn't an Air. However, they will have been updated since then so you could look online at models and weights. Also, if you're wanting to keep a lot of music on it, you might have to look for one with a bigger memory.

    Hi Pink,

    Ii don't know much about them but if you need it to talk, it would be good to ask the Mnda specialist and get Matthews imput.

    Love Terry

    Hi Pink,

    It depends what you want the iPad to do for you really...

    A Windows tablet may be more useful/adaptable for you in the future, so don't just think iPad!

    Hi Pink,

    When I was working we all had Microsoft but at home I had Mac. I know that Microsoft has come a long way but I still prefer the iPad. If you decide to go this route I recommend the air as it only weighs 500gm. You might want to ask your speech therapist about it as if you have speech problems then the NHS is obliged to provide a communication device.

    It's just a thought. I had some birthday money and am using my phone alot to go online. It saves going upstairs to use pc. Think it would come in handy in the future. My speech is fine at the moment, but who knows what lies ahead!

    I take my iPad everywhere with me. I find it the most useful piece of IT that I own. It is light and fits in my bag easily.

    Pinkellee, hello there. My mates brought me an apple mini iPad . It is very good and I use Speak it app to do my speaking. I go to a local hospice every two weeks for a day and the people like my stories written up,and my local nurses, especially Peaky Blinders and Life on Mars stories.
    It is a good size and battery good. I got Speak It on my phone as well to just do quick replies and questions.
    Best wishes John

    Hello did you get an iPad? if so which one? tell me what you think! I've got the iPad Pro wish it had been a bit lighter!
    On the plus side it doesn't have Mercury in it so hopefully I'll be less mad .
