So I had an ipad years ago, like 13 years to be exact and my main reason was for note taking. At the time, they didn't have it like this. I highly recommend all to get one. Thanks for sharing a students perspective on this. The funny thing is that this one device can help you for a lifetime. Well after college and once you enter the workspace. It is best to learn how to use it well and with out having to much to carry. I think your point of how convienent it is very true.
