I have an iPad mini. My friends have laptops, iPads, iPad minis, that's pretty much it, and then any other type of tablet, Samsung. I use it for writing assignments up, doing classwork; I use it for internet, pretty much just any classwork.
I use it just like any other device I would have had. I do bring it home and it just helps me coming back and forth from school and having the same thing all together.
I wouldn't say I've had any problems; it's just connecting with internet with the school basically. I think it's great!
