      I would have liked an iPad even better, but I'm not going to say no to a Surface tablet for sure.

      After filling in hundreds of all kinds of forms on line. I have never won anything at all. Many fail because they want a mobile phone number, unfortunately I don't have one, that is why I enter competitions to win on. I hope I might be lucky Thanks longshanks

      I owned a ComputerLand store in those days and sold the first Windows 1.0 - but I think I had to give almost as many refunds as I had sales. Windows was a very daunting experience until Ver 3.1. It still is..................

      Actually, if i won this, would still be able to read Jane Austen's classic collection as e-books and thus get two prizes rolled into one!...Can't wait to get my hands on it! :)
