    Hi everyone, I start my maths course at Loughborough at the end of September and feel that something like a macbook could benefit me in my studies but I'm not sure on the type of software I'm going to be using in the course. I'm wondering whether the iPad Pro would benefit me more given its portability and ability to write out notes at lectures with the pen or am I wrong in thinking so? I'd really appreciate some advice from people who have also studied maths and know more about what they're talking about than I do

    My advice would be save the money, get a pad of paper and a handful of biros.

    Windows will run more Math software, stuff like Maple, Matlab etc

    Though you can get a lot of stuff for Mac

    Don't get the Ipad, it won't run jack

    I have both and I have to say I use my iPad (Air 2) 90% of the time. 1st it because it's lightweight and portable. 2nd simply just because I prefer using it!

    Another option which is cheaper, but just as good as both options, is the Microsoft Surface Pro. I have the surface pro 3 which I really enjoy.

    Are you also doing Maths? If so where have you found using your iPad useful?
