I bought the iPad because I thought it would be great to have around the house for web surfing, gaming, etc. But after some research with it, seeing the possible accessories, I pondered the idea of using it for college ( I am a high school senior). Before you flip out and tell me it cannot replace a laptop, I have read the many threads on this, listen to my situation. I will be a history major, so it would be used for writing papers and regular uses. I would get the blue tooth keyboard , and tarsus case that is also a stand. The new IOS 4.2 allows for important multitasking and printing. So, can the iPad suffice in MY situation? I understand computer science majors and things like that cannot , but will it get me by? If It will work for what I need, it would make me a happier person spending a hundred plus on accessories, rather then a thousand for a new laptop. All thoughts and opinions will be appreciated.
