I've had enough of our ancient laptop. Battery hasn't held a charge for 3 years and now charger point has snapped so it dies as soon as you move!
We both have iPhones so main use for laptop now is to edit photos and as storage for them with occasional tv viewing and films. So what should I buy to replace it? Don't want to spend a fortune.

We have iPhones, an Apple Mac, laptop and iPad so probably not much help. I think for what you say you want to use it for I would go with an iPad.

iPad and external hard drive probably. If you want it for word processing and printing then laptop!

What dolly says. Get an extra storage device

iPads are fab, but are basically a large iPhone without the phone bit, so in order to use it it needs to be plugge into a computer an connected to iTunes, it doesn't work as a computer in and of itself straight out of the box. I use mine instead of my laptop, but if I didn't have a laptop as well I wouldn't be able to use it at all.

I'd get a laptop over a tablet TBH. You can get a decent laptop with a 1TB hard drive fairly inexpensively these days. iPads are so expensive for what they are - though if I could justify the cost I'd get one! Laptops offer so much more functionality.
