    I've noticed I print at LEAST half as much as I used to at Work and home now that I can take my documents with me on my iPad instead of piles of papers.

    printing from iPad is now available, but I don't find many practical times where I want/need to print

    Does the ability to move, read and edit documents on your iPad wherever you go, plus read email, use e-coupons/boarding passes, etc. and then upload, send, collaborate with those documents make you less likely to print?

    How have your printing habits changed?

    I'm not just printing less, but overall I use paper less at work now than ever. I have one page of written stuff on my desk, including internal course notes, where I'd have had a quarter of a notebooks worth by now.

    One thing I do is use my iPad as a "music book" so I don't have to print sheets out. I like Pages but am considering the pdf reader mentioned elswhere.

    No vote, because I print exactly the same: no print at all, txt & PDFs from many years.

    Good points. I've noticed at the office I tend to print less, and just take meeting notes on my iPad, presentations stay digital and even plane boarding passes and itineraries don't need printed anymore.

    I'm still having to print out research papers to turn into my clinical instructors, but am referring to my notes from lectures much more through my iPad than by printing them out. So far, I'm enjoying it.

    Interesting......
    Here is a stunning paper usage statistics from a top university. Students from the university of size ~8000 students and no restriction on printing, consumed ~10 million sheets of printed materials (1 million dollar worth of paper) in an academic year. This is equivalent to cutting ~1000 trees. One can easily imagine how much colleges can benefit from using a device like iPad.

    Paper Consumption in the US

    From 1991 to 2000 consumption of office paper went up 27%
    From 2000 to 2009 consumption of office paper went down 27%
    What do you think is driving this?

    I've noticed at my company executives are printing less now that they have iPads. No need to print emails or calendars or powerpoints or meeting agendas.....it's all staying digital!
