This is such a silly idea. I think even the 15/16 year olds of year eleven are too young. Giving things like this to an eleven year old is just plain stupid. What happens to the children that are walking home with an over priced ipad in their bag and a bigger lad decides that he wants one? Why spend all that money on an old piece of kit? You could get a brand new Android tablet for around the same price, there are several around the £160 mark (from new). They do the exact same thing. Most have decent processors and HDD space. They even have quite a lot of RAM so multi-tasking should not be a problem. Why spend so much on an inferior product? Apple is the technological equivalent of buying Ralph Lauren clothing. You buy the logo, not necessarily a decent product. Some Apple products are very good but when you compare price and specifications they just smack as a bit of a rip off. Shall we dress our children in Armani for school?
