If spread over 24 months that is only £11 a month but I feel uncomfortable with the idea parents are being encouraged to enter 2 year payment plans for school kit. Would they have to pay interest? Education should be accessible to all without having to go to such lengths. What it they want an upgrade a few years on and this becomes standard for all schools? What if you have more than one child? I'm sure it will help them but not sure this is the right way to go about it. It puts a lot of pressure on parents who of course will want the best for their kids and won't want them without, especially if other kids get them. From the traders point of view I guess it's one way to get rid of Ipad 2's now the 4 is out. The cheapest on sale online are around £310 with VAT taken off around £248. The trader won't make too much but selling stock I guess is better than not selling it.
