Laptops are VERY useful but if you have come this far with just your ipad then its still good! Do you have a PC?

I mean buying a laptop is a good investment...they’re meant for things like making PowerPoint presentations and word documents. They’re more powerful machines than a tablet. And they’re actually meant for the purpose you need them for (such as PowerPoint, word, using the internet, etc). But obviously you have to look at your own pocket first. It’s not a need, it’s a want and if you’re fine without one and have all the facilities and stuff you need on your iPad then you’re alright. In regards to software, not quite sure about that. Again a laptop is meant for things like that (opening numerous software and applications) whereas an iPad is not ygm.

Laptop. Tablet type covers generally suck, and the screens are a bit too cramped imo. Plus, you might need to run software that won't run on iPadOS.

yh, using it to make notes with the pen and printing them off is a great way to utilise your iPad - lots of uni kids do that. But the trouble is with relying fully on the iPad is that it may not be able to run software that you may need to use for your course. 👍🏼
