Thread moved to a more appropriate sub-forum. Not a "Schweb's Lounge" topic.

So buy one? I'm a little confused by the point of this thread.

HP printers with Air Play are quite affordable.
You can insure your electronics under renter's insurance or home owner's insurance if you're worried about someone stealing it.

Try Puffin or Skyfire browser - if you really need flash. Works but isn't the greatest as Flash generally expects you to have a mouse with a bunch of buttons and a scroll wheel.
Puffin Browser
For Consumers
But I can get to many flash sites and browse as usual - i.e.
Santa Cruz Bicycles

Edit: I have a Canon Airprint printer that wasn't too expensive (I think like $150) and everything prints to it well as it has Airprint AND a Bonjour server.

Actually, the pixels is not really good. The iPad 4 would be good choice.
