Please back up these sweeping statements with facts. The iPad 2 may not be current generation but it still runs the widest range of software available on a tablet and is the cheapest entry point into that eco-system. This is a device that well respected industry journals such as PC-Pro recently had on their A-list (until the iPad 3 replaced it in March 2012). Are there 'many better' tablets available with equivalent spec and educational software functionality for a price of £164 (half the price of a basic iPad2 at time of writing)? I doubt it.
