Hi all! I'm a 3rd year college student majoring in Physical Therapy and I am in a dilemma (like every other students out there) whether to get an iPad 2 or a simple notebook for note taking and research assignments.
I do own a very powerful laptop but it has been a burden to carry around due to it's bulk so I thought I would turn to a more portable alternative for doing my assignments when I am at school or during group meetings.
My degree involves reading many research articles (in pdf format), writing essays and note taking. Do you think an iPad is capable of doing the above tasks? Bearing in mind that I have a computer to sync my documents to for editing and printing. Of course, I would also consider getting a blue tooth keyboard to go along with the iPad. I would also like to know how well iPad 2 handle multitasking. Say a couple of articles opened along with safari and a word processing app.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
