Apple's marketing team declare this to be the Friday you've been waiting for. However, there is a good chance the deals Apple has on offer are not the deals you were looking for.

I was prepared to buy the base model of whatever full-sized iPad Apple announced. If the decision is not quite as easy for you, read on.
