I am currently a molecular biology grad student. I am very close to graduation and I am in the process of writing a grant and later my thesis. My main use for the ipad would be to read scientific papers and organize them. Maybe some email and light surfing. I'm an apple fan and I have my MBP, but for my phone i've gone to google because I am unhappy with ATT and I detest the way apple controls its app approval process (I have many developer friends). My question is in your opinion, is the ipad a good reading device? furthermore would it be good to organize lots of PDFs, could I organize them into folders? I've seen there is an Ipad app called papers that might help. Is there another science user in the forum that could advise me if I should get an ipad or maybe in my case a google tablet with a open file system? I'm curious to hear your thoughts.
