Personally, I think the iPad 2 will be much more useful than my current Macbook Pro, except when I have to edit movies and use Motion. Most of the time, I read scans of my textbook on my Macbook Pro (the preview full screen makes it hard to read) and take notes in my notebook from it. Also, our school system is based on IB, so we have a lot of Extended Essay, Internal Assessments, and usual essays to write. That's what I've been thinking of getting the iPad 2, with the addition of bluetooth keyboard. I won't be using it for anything else besides essay writing, reading textbook PDF, note taking, and general use. Yes, I've thought about buying a Macbook Air, but considering that I already own a laptop, additional Mac doesn't make sense to me at all. Your opinions? Experiences so far? How many of you, if you are a student, use iPad 2 for school?
