I'm going to uni next September to do law and I'm stuck on what to buy.
I want a 2 in 1 (laptop and tablet) as I would like to go paperless at uni. But I am torn between microsoft surface pro (with the pen) and iPad pro (with the pen and keyboard). I'm not much of a tech whiz, but I know that I want high storage capacity (as I'd like to draw on the tablets as well) and want something that's suitable for school as well. Any ideas of which is better between the two or of better alternatives? I am leaning for towards the ipad but simply bc the convenience of airpods.

Edit: I already have an iPhone and I have a HP laptop that's okay (but probably won't last thru uni)

I defo recommended an iPad. My old one is like 5 years old and it still works perfectly fine. It is defo better in the long run and It is much easier to use. That is just my preference!
