I bought one many years ago, it ended up being used as an oversized calculator. Sold it a few months later. Changed jobs 9 months ago and was given iPhone and iPad to use totally hated it because I was a android fan, I had to go buy an Apple TV to stream to the tv I never had an issue before anyway I’ve warmed up to it.
I use mine for work, ignoring the wife, reading while on the throne, games, TeamViewer, Apple TV remote, Samsung tv remote. Navigation, weather watching, YouTube. Facebook.
We have two in the house. An old iPad3 which is used for streaming (Showmax, DSTV, youtube etc.) and I have a 2018 iPad that I use when I travel (Mostly YouTube and I download Netflix movies for offline entertainment).
