Would a tablet or laptop be a better choice for a college freshman?
ablake 1 year ago
My son is starting college in about a month, and wants an iPad to use “for school.” I think a laptop would make more sense, but maybe I’m just basing that on my own college experience from the 90s. Don’t get me wrong, I love iPads, and use mine all the time, but I also have a desktop and laptop. Can an iPad really do the things needed in college... research, sure, but writing papers and putting together presentations...I’m not convinced.
