I'm studying electrical engineering at RIT and considering getting an iPad 3 when it comes out...it would be a delayed christmas present. I would mainly use the iPad as a laptop supplement while on campus and for note taking. Since I'm studying EE typing the lectures would not be an option to many graphs/equations etc. My question is how practical would it be to write on my iPad to take notes. I would definitely prefer this over paper and pen because having an electronic backup would be awesome. So for anyone who has done this, what are the options is a stylus the best way to go. Number two do you think i would be able to keep up using a stylus when compared to paper and pen. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I don't know if this matters but I have a mbp also.
