Hey guys, just wanted to get your opinions on whether having a tablet when you're at uni is useful. Like to bring to class/lectures or to the library and stuff like that, not really so much for the games and apps or things like that.
appreciate your views and comments thanks
Ps: not really sure if i should have created this poll here so let me know it i should move it some place else
I think we already had this discussion - instead of getting a new laptop I'm lugging my workhorse one to uni but it'll stay in my room 99% of the time, and if I want to take notes/ work on essays I can do so on my iPad. That said, I was lucky enough to get mine as a present from my uncle, if I had to spend my hard earned cash I think I wouldn't get one.
I have one and can honestly say I think it is quite useless as a device for anything but enjoyment. Pen, paper and a ruler is going to be your best friend. At least for maths & phys where you need to draw figures and such.
For subjects where you write a lot (guessing law, econ etc.) a laptop with a good keyboard will be far superior.
The only thing I do on my iPad that can be considered productive or academic is reading and watching lectures, things that can be done just as well in a proper book or on a laptop. The short of it is; it's a product of consumption. Not creation.
My suggestion is to look into a solid and portable laptop, an ultrabook for example. It will serve you better, guaranteed.
