Can I ask why an ipad?
Thanks for your replies everyone.
I guess I was thinking i-pad as I want to be able to put games and books on for DS - but I guess other tablets must have competitive offerings.
I think DH will have to take his laptop because he will be doing some work OS, and we can watch movies on that sometimes (although it is too big for DS to use balancing on his lap for example and battery life means we will often have to save it for work use not leisure when we are in transit), so perhaps the mini will be enough. Last time we went OS we took a cheap portable DVD player for DS that only had a 6 inch screen, which was fine for movies for him, and I notice the ipad mini has 7.9 inches, so will be an improvement on that anyway.
Seems like we don't need 3G then - We do have a good internet connection and WIFI at home for downloading, and we won't use the ipad for skype or facetime as we can skype using DHs laptop and don't really have too many people to skype with....we are going to visit my parents over there and DS will cope without seeing the faces of his friends and other grandparents for two months.
Good idea to go into an apple shop and check it out. We are passing through KL airport, so I wonder if we can buy it any cheaper there duty free?
