Ipads are a waste of money and are very limited as to what you can download by apple. Many school systems are being suckered into this "fad" without knowing their capabilities and downfalls like they still wont support flash, which many school software vendors and websites use. They are a nightmare to work on or even change a battery out on. There are cheaper options for far less money, and far less headaches. Netbooks are cheaper, easier to work on, have a keyboard and usb ports, and you can change they battery easy when it goes out in a few years. But who cares, IPADS ARE COOL!!! YAAAAA! WOOO!
