Hi all, excited to be in the forum! I'm currently a undergraduate student studying Geology with an emphasis in Geographic Information Systems. I'm very interested in the iPad and it's application in my school and future work. I also work for a small company that deals with water resources. There are various possible applications I can see for the iPad and my school and work. The bottom line is as a college student I don't feel I can justify such a purchase for "experimenting" if you will. I'm wondering if there is a way anyone knows of that I could obtain an iPad honestly at a highly reduced price or for free. I would be more than willing to report on my successes and failures with the iPad. Thanks for the help!
