I'm starting an English PGCE in September and have the chance to get either a netbook or iPad for my birthday, just before I start. I already have a MacBook, which I'll be using most of the time, but I'm looking for a back up that I can take into uni/schools for work. I'd rather have an iPad, but I'm worried about typing for long periods. I just wondered what people who have just done a PGCE would recommend? Thank you!
