    Personally. Hell No. For one you are going to show it off, yes? Someone might just have to have it. And if you toss around your back pack like my son did ~ well ~ let's just say keep it at home!

    Oh, and welcome!! We have a Young One here who lives in the JB section. Very smart!

    I would not take it to school, all your friends will want to se and lay with it. To easy to drop it. Not worth the risk.

    I heard you call my name!

    I am 15 and I bring my iPad to school and take notes and stuff. BUT, I asked my teachers first to see if they cared or not. One teacher didn't believe the usefulness of it so I brought it in the next day and showed him. Now, he wants one! I do keep a case on it though. Most kids don't even know what is in the case when I carry it so nobody bothers it. I have cut the weight of my backpack in a third because of online textbooks and a Spanish-english dictionary app. And this is a public school, not private. (yes, it does make a difference)

    I look at other sections every now and then..... :)

    Yeah I was kinda thinking games at break time when it's raining or something... I don't think I would be allowed to use it in class. I live in Wales, our school is outdated as hell and all the teachers are douches.. Up until just a few weeks ago we were still running win89 on our school computers! And I'm doing GCSE ict. Only just now have we updated to windows 7 finally. Anyway so I've kinda made up my mind now for the simple reason that I fear for my iPad as it can't fear for it's self. It's, ' fearless' if you will so someone's gotta do it for it... But I don't know on the other hand I used to bring my iPod touch into school all the time, I was like the first person in the school to have one, this was a few years ago, but now everyone's got one so it's not so much of a big deal.. I don't know I will have to think about it.. Also take into account that my friends also got an iPad and he's gonna bring his in if I bring mine in so that could even it out a bit...I don't know... And if your wondering about the picture of my dog I just wanted to test out file attachment on the iPad...

    Yes I did call your name, Grayson.:D I am glad you found this thread ~ and you two met!

    This is another perspective ~ I never thought of the other kids not even knowing what was in the case ~ but once they see you use it....

    Yeah... But word doesn't spread though. I guess an iPad isn't earth-shattering news. :D
