Macbook Pro...

  1. 1
    Hi all! I bought a MacBook Pro and was wondering how you utilize yours for school? I'm not technologically challenged by any means, I just really don't know where to start. I'm not necessarily looking for apps, so I didn't post this in the Mobile apps section, I was just curious what all you can do with it as far as studying and notetaking. Thanks!

    I have a MacBook Pro and an iPad. Honestly, I don't even use me laptop. Waste of 2400. Everything I do on my MacBook I can do on my ipad mini.

    It's functionality isn't any different than any other laptop. You use it for the Internet and for word processing/document creation.....just.....like....any computer. The only difference is, it's faster, sleeker, more fun and pretty to look at.

    Thanks. Surfing the web and word processing I can do. I guess I was meaning more in depth how exactly do you use it to take notes, mark up power points, etc? I've been writing down different apps people talk about and I just need to sit down and YouTube some app videos to help.

    Macbooks are really just like most computers, the only difference being the OS of mac instead of windows like a lot of people have. I don't have one myself but my boyfriend loves his (he's a computer science major also). There is an app called iProcrastinate which I know I would really love if I had a mac. It's basically a digital planner, but you can separate different things into different categories or folders, which are color coded, and there are alerts and such as well.

    Thanks so much! I'm downloading that app now! I'm trying to wrap my head around trying to be more organized to hopefully make things a little easier this semester. I'm 33 and this is my second semester rso the last time I was in college was 15 years ago and I didn't own a laptop at the time. Everything was pen and paper and binders.

    I like using power point (or any presentation software) for digital flash cards. You can put a picture or diagram on one slide and the answer on the next. If you save it as a PDF you can put you slide deck on your iPad and study that way. The only downside is that it is hard to shuffle.

    Oh, and I use iCal to keep track of all of my due dates for assignments and exam dates.
