    I'm a uni student and have had a MacBook Pro since first year and I recently got an iPad Mini and absolutely LOVE it! But I'm still a little bit confused... for those of you with both a laptop and an iPad or tablet, how do you differentiate when to use which? Are there some things you exclusively use your iPad for, maybe lectures, or do you use both devices for everything?

    I only ever use my tablet for games, internet browsing, reading documents and as a portable catalogue when I'm wandering around the shelves in the library. I find tablets near-useless for creating material, writing essays or note taking (I prefer handwritten notes, so neither laptop nor tablet is much use to me in that regard).

    They can be handy, but I think a tablet is more of an expensive novelty than a useful piece of equipment, at least in my case. There's pretty much nothing 'productive' it can do that a laptop can't do better, mine is more a convenience tool for when I'm not sat at my desk.

    I mainly use my laptop for course/home work and when I'm at home. I use my iPad for when I'm away and for games (As my laptop is about 4 years old, runs Windows 8, but not really a gaming machine!).
