Ipad 16GB or Xbox 360 250GB?


Ok which 1 should I buy. I can’t buy both because I don’t have that much money considering that I only have a summer job for so long. I have to quit soon because I gotta go back to school. I’m only 14 so my education is important. Which is it? I pad $499.99 or Xbox360 250GB $299.99? Only got like

$600 dollars. Oh ,and it would really help if you list the reasons why I shouldn’t buy this or that. You know that way I can understand it more.

Thanks! 😀

  1. The IPad is pretty much pointless and not worth an extra $200, and the new xbox will last you so much more longer.

  2. Honestly, I would buy the Xbox 360 for the fun.

    But if you really think your education is important then a laptop would be the best to buy. Ever since I bought an Xbox, I have missed so much school and my grades actually went from all A’s to mostly C’s in one quarter. If you don’t give a * about school then get an xbox. The ipad would be great for school but would EASILY get stolen.

  3. iPad – pros: music, movies, light games, social networking, fun to show off, great for long trips,cheap games

    cons: apple will come out with a new one next year thats way better, expensive, iphone 4 is better

    xbo360 – pros: great gaming, great online community, hours of fun, cheaper, kinect ready, wont be a new one for a couple of years now

    cons: pay for xbox live, not really mobile, games are expensive

    it all depends on what you like more

    i personally would recommend the xbox because you will get way more use out of it if your into gaming at all. and apple will guaranteed come out with a new ipad next year and then you’ll have to spend even MORE money.

  4. Get the XBOX.

    The iPad will get old after a while. I know I wouldn’t enjoy carrying that thing around. If you’re only gonna use it at home then just use a computer.

    On the other hand, the XBOX will allow you to have a lot more fun with all of the games you can play on it. Plus, you can communicate with people from all over the world and do something you both enjoy while having a good time with a good conversation.

    New Xbox 360 Slim cons

    – The IR receiver is located lower on the console and appears to have a narrower field. So depending on setup using a remote maybe a headache. 

    – Only comes with standard def av cables. 

    – Does not use the old memory cards or hard drives. 

    – Touch sensitive buttons that when touch emit a soft tone. 

    – Kinect ready socket in the back.

  6. The ipad is just a big ipod touch. I still don’t get the point. Get the xbox. Either way though, id save your money for a car. You’ll thank me 2 years from now.
