Hi any tips and suggestions would be appreciated

Doing a stem course at ucl looking at my modules it’s a lot of maths and working out and I go through so much so wanted to go paperless

I wanted to buy an iPad because I’ve seen you’re able to annotate documents , write notes digitally and which I thought would be great

However I know a laptop is important hassle free when typing and I know it’ll be fiddly with the iPad even if I buy their keyboard.

I saw a girl in the Libary she had some sort of black tablet / pad which was connected to her MacBook and she was digitally making notes that was connected to her iPad which I thought it would be a great idea without spending that amount on a iPad does anyone have suggesting I’ve seen the Wacom but don’t know too much about it are you able to annotate word documents with it ?


I think it would be great as I would spend 1.3k instead of a hefty 1.9k which i think is great

I'd suggest buying an ipad as your laptop is quite recent which means that you can use it for a few more years.

I would’ve kept it but my laptop is dying I turn it on and it sounds horrible and it’s already quite slow and I don’t have much storage on it and i wasn’t smart and got the minimum storage at the time so I think at university storage won’t last more than 2nd year.

Storage isn't as big of an issue as you think. Idk how much storage you get at ucl but my uni gives us 5TB of one drive and you can buy external hard drives if that isn't enough.

That’s true but also my big worry is the chip , I have some computing models and I don’t want for me not to be able to use my MacBook because a certain app isn’t supported also with the iPad I’m not too sure which is the best module to get I also liked the idea of getting a Wacom or a graphics tablet as I don’t have to carry both devices and it’s all on one device
