    I think this is a great effort, but I think it should be $50 per year vs $80.

    So let me get this straight.

    You buy an iPad, then add £80 on top a year, and you get a stripped down, less powerful version OF A WINDOWS 8 TABLET?

    This is the crap that will be spewed from Fanboys everywhere. "OOOH. WINDOWS APPS. BETRERERRRR DAN SIR FACE AHAHAHAHHAHAHA wheresmywalletohitgotnickedohwellIhavenomoremoneyanyway"

    You need to spend £200 more, and you still get less, just a bit less.

    Nope.

  4. Ye spend £200 more then you cant use windows apps on a mac so your 1 missing out on the mac software you want and 2 why wouldn't you abuse the advantage plus if you cant afford £80 a year then why spend the money on a ipad if you wanted to get use windows software?

    If you really want a ipad with some windows software than parallels is amazing specially as can choose not to use windows dumbed down RT version or the way over expensive Pro tablet.

    If I had a ipad I would abuse this feature to my hearts content as its made to make things more simple you gotta be dumb to think its for windows fanboys.
