    I have an iPad that I use to type up all of my papers and do everything imaginable on the only thing I have are mandatory videos to watch and that is the only thing I use my macbook pro for since they are on CDs. They also come with DVD's but we only have one tv in my house. Lol! I haven't run into any other problems. I can print with an app directly from my iPad which was fairly cheap. I also have a keyboard case which I love!! Pages also let me format my papers the way my teacher need them. I definitely love it. It's so light weight.

    It's a beautiful day to save lives.

    Everyone has their own technological preferences, but I would highly recommend the MacBook Air.

    Here's why:

    It only weighs 2.38 lbs and when it's closed and in its sleeve, it's comparable to the size of a slim notebook. It boots up and shuts down instantaneously allowing me to quickly access the internet, my documents and online academic materials. Web browsing, accessing videos, researching and writing papers has never been easier. It's a smaller laptop, but it has a full size keyboard which is very comfortable. The "track pad" is also convenient in that I can swipe between screens/web pages and even alter the size of the text.

    Apple products tend to be on the pricier side (I think a brand new 11" MBA costs around $999), but I was able to get mine refurbished for $700 from the Apple store and it came with a one year warranty. I've had it for 9 months and have never had any problems with it.

    Good luck with your search, and best of luck to you in nursing school! :-)
    Cool thanks for info!!!

    What kind of storage did you get? I'm hoping to get most of my books on an ipad, is that what you've done? Thanks in advance!!

    I have an iPad and a laptop-- I leave the laptop at home and take my iPad everywhere. Everywhere. My notes are so much more effective as study tools now that I can easily integrate pictures into them... A few classmates have gotten one after seeing what it can do. I do still write papers on my laptop, but I really spend more time with my iPad than anything.
    You don't NEED one, but it really is awfully nice to have and to use. If you already have a computer at home, I highly recommend the iPad.
    Do you have a special app to do that?

    I was thinking an ipad would be better for power points etc

    I absolutely love my iPad! I use it for everything, and since I begin my program this month, I've been downloading free apps (and paid apps depending on what they are) to aid in what I'll be learning. I bought the eBook for my textbook on my iPad to make for easy, portable reading when I'm on-the-go. There are countless medical apps that are amazing and free! :-) What's better is that since my printer/copier/scanner is wireless, I can print from my iPad and have it available when needed. Can't beat that! As for my laptop, I use it for writing papers and when I'm taking notes while reading. I think both are remarkable for their own reasons.
