Tablets worth it for school? - Page 3

post #21 of 24
I have to agree with the above. From my experience, flash on android isn't good enough to actually do online flash assignments (OWL is my experience). Over last year I carried a dell m700 (I think? one of the first 12" laptops), later an aspire one, and later a CR48 with Chrome. Next week I'm going back with the CR48 with win7.
I'm not sure what classes your taking, but I have yet to replace pad and paper for chem or calc classes, symbols just take too long to take good notes on a computer. CrOS always raised my stress level to print out a paper I whipped up between classes with proper formatting, native office apps are just a must IMO for college.

Over the weekend I was going to pick up a touchpad and BT KB and give it a try. I'm still probably gonna pick up a BT keyboard and give it a try with my CM7 nook. I've always seen the biggest downside to carrying a laptop is the distraction of trillian, facebook, and forums for the whole class period.

In my honest and rather unbiased and very hypocritical view/idea/thought thing in my head, I say that Tablets are good for games like Tower Defense and stuffs like that. Also, I feel like a trekkie when I hold one.

I use my Ipad2 for school. Have a wireless keyboard for it and everything. My teachers always want to use it. Got flash with Frash (jailbroken) and even though we get laptops for school (dissapointingly crappy) I have to say, besides having windows it kills our school laptops. Sad actually.

-"OMG that guys rich effect?"
-Small
-APP STORE (Installous as well)
-etc.?

My other question is, do you guys find tablet is worth it for school? what other applications is useful for it?

My major is civil engineer: structure (not 100% but most likely) Got about 2 years left for school.
Yeah, tablets are great for school stuff like typing essays..... *snickers*
