My trusty, but old, iPad seems to be kaput - no longer willing, or able, to connect to WiFi. Thinking about replacement but canít really afford a new iPAD - any recommendations on good alternatives?

Mrs D has onto her 3rd Samsung tablet.... Loving the latest Tab8 I got her for her birthday last October.
We have two cheaper Lenovos' for the grandchildren and they are much slower to start and definitely perform at lower standard.

I used a Tesco's Hudl for many years and it still works (Android). However my son thought I should get up-to-date and bought me an iPad 7 so we could easily keep in touch. May not help you, but is there a relative you could appeal to?Wink

Have 2 x samsung tab A's the 8" version had one for over 6 years and the other one for at least 4 and both working perfectly, don't want or need the most up to date tec so these suit us fine. Think I paid £119 for one and £99 for the other

I am in the same boat, my iPad Mini from 2012 is no longer able to be updated and is stuck in IOS 9.3.6 and a few apps I use are not compatible with such an old piece of hardware, too.
I too was thinking of a more reasonably priced replacement, but everything I have is synced - iPhone, Pad, MacBook Pro and soon to arrive iMac...I would want any new tablet to talk and sync with the other machines...

From what I have read, Samsung would appear to be probably the best alternative.

Thats why I went back to an iphone from a Samsung so I could sync with the ipad but my phone can no longer update to latest OS either. I would like a new iphone but they are so expensive and I cant justify the outlay at the moment.

I would sell a body part and get another ipad.
A brand new ipad is £329, just sell the old lens in your cupboard that you no longer use or your DVD collection now you have Netflix, there is always some tat to sell to help fund your next purchase. The boss might be happy thinking you have finally started your spring clean of the man cave
