I just ordered an iPad a few minutes ago and can't wait to use it . Ive seen some useful apps I can use with the iPad and schoolwork. Im going to college too so Ill try using it for notes and light schoolwork. Also, Ive seen some people saying that a laptop is more useful than an iPad for college, but the one difference between most laptops and an iPad is that you can actually draw diagrams and equations on it. Id hate to try to take notes in a math class with a trackpad and a keyboard.
