The iPad 4 is the quickest iPad yet and a solid choice for a tablet in which we can barely find fault. However, if you're not in a hurry to buy, it's worth waiting for the rumoured iPad 5, which could launch within months.

2. Apple iPad mini

The iPad mini is a premium small tablet, with a price to match. It's a shame Apple couldn't have included a Retina screen and newer processor - expect the iPad mini 2 to get those updates when it launches later this year. This Wi-Fi only model also lacks GPS. It's not cheap by any stretch, especially if you want more storage spare or the 3G/4G cellular version, but it's great value compared to a full-size iPad. You can save a chunk by buying a Nexus 7, Nook HD or Kindle Fire HD, but if you must have an iDevice, it won't disappoint.

Still available as the cheapest full-sized iPad, the second-generation Apple tablet remains a classic - better than almost all Android devices.

You may not be able to buy direct from Apple, but expect there to be plenty of third-generation iPads kicking around for a while yet. It may lack 4G connectivity, but the iPad 3 remains a stunning device.

Price aside, whether you're in it for the apps, games, or media, this is an iPod you'll treasure. With its improved cameras, zippy performance, bright and roomy display, support for Siri, and more colourful and statuesque form, the fifth-generation iPod touch is a winner. It may be slightly fascetious to include it in an iPad chart - but only slightly. It's smaller, but has much the same functionality as the iPad mini. And it's a much cheaper option.
