    total rip off :( they've waited until just after the election so the pound is at its VERY lowest so they can claim it's not them it's the exchange rate.

    Sigh.

    Need some advice...

    I am a part timer free lance and pay my own tax as well as working full time.

    I am claiming my lap top via tax at the moment..... would I be able to claim ipad as well?

    If so how can I 'justify' ipad if I have lap top...

    Im still vaguely pondering it :/ some of our customers are using them and they say it works very well and of course adds cell assisted GPS. (they've all bought from the states and just cut a regular sized sim card down to micro sized to make it work)
