Most of the people I know who got them for school ended up with a laptop or netbook. They suck for typing on. They said they enjoy them for browsing the web in bed etc, but that they found they just weren't practical for academic use.

I voted the 3rd one, cause I didn't see the one about mooching off of a family member! XD We have one, but I hardly get to use it. It's my dads. It's fun though, and my dad is 100 times better than me at draw something because he has a huuuuuge screen and I have I little iPhone screen lol!!

I would still have a laptop, but it would've been nice to bring on campus. I used to have classes back to back so I'd bring my laptop to pass the time. Having an iPad would've been easier to carry around and use. There's 10 hours of battery life on it as well, so there wouldn't have been a need to carry around a charger either.

Don't have one yet, but a tablet would be handy for all of my business stuff and scheduling. Not an iPad, though. I'd get an Android tablet.

Ah.. Still you see a lot of first years carting them around. By second year only a few.. and after that you just don't see them. My net book gets about that amount of battery life, is small and better for typing. I do get what you mean about between classes, I take my ebook reader for that. But maybe as one gets in the upper years there are other things you should be doing than surfing the web between classes

I don't really own electronics beyond the basics. None of it's mine either! I use my boyfriend's computer and TV. He has a cell phone that is only used when someone goes out for the night so I borrow it the rare time I do. I'm so exciting.

I want a tablet just because I like gadgets and would like to have the game apps and also the educational apps for the kids. But I haven't bought one because I can't justify $600 for a toy that will only distract me more from all the things I should be doing.

I feel quite a bit better! I have a regular old cell phone and a laptop for internet. Works well for me.

I might get a smart phone this next go around once my contract is up. Not sure if I want to pay for the internet on it every month. There are very few times I really think 'it would be nice right now to have a phone with internet'. Don't think it would be worth the cost every month if I never use it.

Smartphones are gateway devices. Once you have a small portable device with the internet just two seconds away you can NEVER GO BACK. I kind of wish I'd never gotten one in the first place, despite how handy it is for googling things to win arguments.
