    Hey all. Newbie here. My laptop crashed on Friday, and a friend suggested getting an iPad to work with while laptop is being fixed. I have a few colleagues in the RN program with me that swear by the iPad to work with for clinical and lecture. I was hesitant at first, but after discovering how user friendly this is compared to *ahem* anything else, I think I am sold. Still need some direction though, and if anyone has any hints or can point me in some good directions, I would be grateful. I currently need an app to work documents and the like. Hoping to not spend too much more $$. Let the fun begin, and I look forward to learning much!

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad
