    • not going down the road of high school students
    • My focus here is taking notes in class first, and doing coursework second.
    • Better battery life/Light weight
    • not unreasonable to think I’ll get about six to seven hours on the iPad
    • The iPad can shave nearly three pounds off a college student’s shoulders compared to using a MacBook, not to mention the weight savings if you were able to replace most or all of your books with the iPad
    • It will also be great for reviewing class material in the hall before an exam.
    • I’ve never liked having the laptop screen be a wall between the teacher and I.
    • Single-tasking may let me focus better
    • I’m hoping the iPad not being capable of multitasking might help me focus a little better
    • Lack of e-textbooks
    • I found it a lot easier to take an iPhone pic of a diagram the teacher drew on the board than attempt to recreate it in my notebook
    • No citation/equation support
    • I can see not being able to complete and submit a paper solely on the iPad.
  • tags: no_tag
