iPad for class?

Postby Wsp0001 » Sat Sep 15, 2012 1:05 am

Long story short here guys and girls…I need a new laptop and am considering an iPad instead. I want to use it in class to type notes as well as my briefs so I can stay a bit more organized and actually be able to read my notes(I can make a doctor's handwriting look beautiful). So I would obviously be gettin to keyboard to type with and was just wondering if anyone in here uses an iPad for the reasons I I've described and how it is working out? Or should I just get a MacBook pro like everone else in my class? Thanks for any input and good luck my people

There are a couple of people in my class that use iPads extensively. Interestingly enough, they don't use external keyboards with the iPads. They also have laptops though.

You'll probably need to take your final exam on a traditional laptop. I don't know if the examsoft software works with the ipad, but even if it does, I know people with netbooks who said the exam didn't work with the dimensions of their computer.

iPad = Interactive Fruit Ninja during Gunner stream-of-consciousness

MacBook = Doing what everyone else is doing during Gunner stream-of-consciousness


Weigh these two options.
