My sister is just about to start high school and I'm debating whether to get the IPad 2 or just anther laptop for her. I really like the IPad because, not only is it cheaper than buying a macbook, it has apps and can use it like a ipod. For school, her basically need something that her can type and print papers on. If I get the attachable keyboard for the IPad, is it easy to write papers on?? Does anyone know from experience about writing essays on their IPad?
