    try note taker hd. i use it all the time in school. you can write as small and as sharp as needed.

    instead of a stylus i just hold a pen flipped on its end. then recess the tip a bit in my grip and use my finger. the pen acts as a guide and i find it quickens hand taken notes.

    Good call on note taker. That's a much nicer program than Penultimate. But for my money, I still prefer pen and paper. Will DEFINITELY use this app to annotate PDFs, though! :)

    I'm a student too, the iPad and Good Reader have completely changed the way I study.

    I used to have to print hundreds of pages of research journals, lecture notes etc. every semester... recently I haven't used my printer in months :)

    That's definitely a good use for it! IMO, though, I would rather use my e-reader if my readings are sufficiently long. No annotation, but it's easier on the eyes!

    Haha, agreed. I'm entering my junior year and you wouldn't believe how great the ipad is until you use it in school. Definitely helps whenever you have a boring lecture, lol.

    Why is the e-reader easier on the eyes?

    No backlight. I find that after more than two hours or so straight viewing, any computer screen/monitor starts to strain my eyes. Like this exact moment, for example, lol.

    With the e-reader's "e-ink," there is no such backlight, or comparative screen. It is much closer to actual paper!

    I decided that I'm going to get a cheap-ish laptop for law school in the fall, rather than use my laptop. Although I already spent a lot of money on this device, I justify it in three ways:

    1) A full fledged laptop is sturdier. I'm a fidgety person, and my Zagg 2 has already knocked over my ipad TWICE. Fortunately, both times my carpet was on the ground. May not be the case if I'm at school...

    2) With juggling around many files, both notes and essays, as well as PDF readings and what not, it makes eminent sense to have a PC with proper file management systems. Folders and what not. It's a chore to have to keep working with dropbox and ifile ALL the time.

    3) I use my ipad for instant messaging, goofing off on facebook, and watching movies. I think it would be good for my productivity levels to have a dedicated work/study PC, and leave the ipad at home. This theory is support by psychologist Piers Steel, in his book "The Procrastination Equation," who argues that a dedicated work computer is a good way to get around the instant gratification of computer slacking. :)

    I've seen on tv, doctors and clerks using iPads as a professional tool. Hope to get one soon!
