For people who own an Ipad...

and please only answer if you own an Ipad

I am going to college this fall. I really love the Ipad and want to get a wi-fi 16gb one with some of my graduation money. I need to know if it is worth the money and if it would work well for a college student. Thank you!

EDIT: And I own a second generation Ipod Touch

Personally I'd get a laptop.

Most colleges supply all the tools for work anyways, even my community college one has multiple computer labs and such.

you have to remember that ipads/ipods work off of wi fi only. so if you are somewhere that has no wi fi hook up then you get no internet

Ipad is a waste of money.... Stay with your iPod touch

I use my ipad for bull**** mostly. But it beats lugging out the laptop and waiting for it to turn on and load up. Ipad is instant on and instant ready to go. Great for email, web surfing, watching tv, playing games, reading books and some of the day planners are great. Plus its small. I hate bringing my laptop with me places for B.S.

I have the 32gb wifi. If you get a phone that makes it self a mobile hotspot then its just as good as the 3g version too.

Anyways I was iffy at first, but I would get another one and probably the 3g version and ditch my iphone for something without a data plan.

If you decide to go for a mac laptop they are giving a free iPod touch with them for college students. Get an ipad they are pretty nice, basically a bigger version of an iPod touch.

if is for college, get a laptop. It is more comfortable to write on it. I prefer PC for some reason, but its your money so do what ever you want
