    Hi guys, was just wondering how the ipad is for students writing long essays?

    I want to switch to the ipad from my laptop as it would be easier to take with me to pracs and lectueres ect.

    if i brought the keyboard to make it easier would this be quite simple?

    cheers, jemmabelle

    I use the Apple wireless keyboard for lots of typing as I am slightly unreliable using the onscreen keyboard.

    If loud and clear enough I wonder how good Dragon Dictation would be for lectures, it's fantastic when close up, unbelievably reliable.

    I know of someone who wrote a book on an iPad with Bluetooth keyboard so even pretty long essays should be a snap.

    But it uses the internet, and will only record for about a minute before it stops and sends what it has off for processing.

    I didn't realise it uses the Internet, every time I use this forum I learn just how little I really know!

    Truth rather than modesty, blagging can only get me so far!
