    iPads
    Hi there,

    I'm a university student who will be leaving for a year-long exchange in two weeks. I have a Macbook Pro that I will be bringing with me on my trip.

    I am strongly considering getting the iPad 3.

    Do you think it's worth getting if I already have a Macbook Pro? Do you have an iPad? If so, do yo use it often? Do you think somebody in my position would get good use out of it?

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    Specs:
    MBP 17" 2011, 2.3GHz Intel Quad-Core i7, 8GB RAM, MacMini 2011, 2.7GHz Intel Dual-Core i7, 8GB RAM
    Too subjective. I have no idea what you use the MBP for or what you want the iPad 3 for.

    I have both, and use both for different things.
    MBP 17" 2011, 2.3GHz Intel Quad-Core i7, 8GB RAM, AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1GB RAM
    MacMini 2011, 2.7GHz Intel Dual-Core i7, 8GB RAM, AMD Radeon HD 6630M 256MB RAM
    iPhone 5S 64GB, iPad Air 2 128 GB LTE, iPod Nano Gen6 8GB, Apple TV 3 & 2

    I hate to say it…but this EXACT situation has been discussed on Mac-Forums MANY times! "Student or non-Student has a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air…and is wondering if getting an iPad is worth it."

    Please give the Mac-Forums search feature a try.

    I don't do much on my MBP - just the basic typing, surfing the web, watching movies, etc.
