Well, that is the question. I have been rather settled on the idea of getting a wi-fi 32gb ipad for when i graduate from uni in around 2 weeks time. I will be getting Â£300 as a gift (i'm in the UK) and I will put the rest towards it. But i've been thinking about 3g. While I have been looking at the wi-fi, the 3g is a temptress lurking in the shadows, pulling me into her grasp. I have wi-fi at home, and use my ipod touch at home, but I sometimes feel limited at the fact that I can't use it at relative's houses, on the the train, or at shops (one thing I like the idea of is checking prices of goods on my ipad when I am at the shops to compare store prices with internet prices. In the UK, the 32gb wifi is Â£499. The 3g version is Â£100 more expensive at Â£599. And then, of course, I'll have the data plan to pay each month. The cheapest here is Â£7.50 per month for 1gb, which isn't exactly the worst thing in the world. An alternative is to buy a portable modem known as 'mifi' from the network 3. But it has its negatives, as you can get the modem 'free' but with Â£9.50 per month, on an 18 month contract, something which I really do not want to be locked in to. I figure that overall, for the first year, the 3g version will cost around Â£690 if I get it on the 3 Â£7.50 per month plan. So i suppose the question is, is that extra money worth it? Of those of you who have 3g, would you say that you sometimes regret having spent the extra money for the device and the data plan per month, or have you never looked back? Where do you use it? How much does 1gb get you? I know this is a generalised question, but i need all the info and help I can get so i make the sure I make the right choice on which version of this fantastic device I end up buying.
