This is such a general topic that the search turns up so many threads with most not really having to do with what I am wanting to know. With that said, if anyone does have a link to a similar thread I'm more than open to just a link in your response. I was wondering how many people use iPads for classes (college/university mostly). I'm not talking about typing out your thesis paper, or even short essays, but more just taking notes. At my school, most teachers post power points online, so you just need to make side notes, or quick notes about a passage you read in a book. I never mark my books, I write notes. That way I can sell the book later, and can carry just notes instead of a whole book. With all the apps like documents to go or google docs, and even stylus apps that let you write things out, I was wondering if anyone is really using it in class, as it seems like a cheaper alternative than getting a laptop (assuming you have a desktop at home). To me, it doesn't seem like a bad idea, especially if you use a bluetooth keyboard, as it appears most will work with a iPad.
