I was originally planning to get a cheaper used "Book" to use in school (I'm a 9th grader, I also use my iPod touch to take notes via Pages or for flashcards as well) (not risking my new 13" Pro's life!), but after seeing how Apple's media event is supposed to boost the iPad for education, I'm thinking that might be a better investment in the long run. My iPad would serve it's main purpose for school use (Not really interested in too many HD games, though I would get GTA III [and probably only that]) and probably just a few random iPad apps. The same goes for getting another laptop; main priority would be for school. I can get a good PPC computer off craigslist in my area for an average price of around 60$ (taking the 2 highest I saw and two lowest I saw), or I could hopefully find a cheap iPad/get one for Christmas this year (I can't ask for one on my birthday since my MBP is both my Christmas AND birthday present), so which would you go for when concerning school use? A laptop or an iPad?
