As we start our first week back at uni most of us are probably still testing the waters a bit. Maybe some of your tutors won’t let you use a laptop in class? Maybe you don’t want to lose your handwriting this early out of school? Or perhaps, the piles of last term’s printouts (still stacked in your room) have lost their appeal for the coming year?
Well, thankfully, the start of each semester brings with it a sense of new beginnings and a chance to start fresh. And with the increasing popularity of e-books, making the switch from loose leaf to the latest technology would appear inevitable. In fact, we all seem to be juggling so much these days. So in a way having everything on one easy tablet is rather appealing. However the price? Not so much. Although in terms of organisation (and the planet!) making the change may well be worth it. But with the humble notepad still priced at around a dollar this remains a big decision. Especially considering the often limited student budget.
To try and make things easier we’ve put together a group of our favourite options for you to ponder (just click on the options below for our handy links). So what will you be using this semester? Perhaps I’ll opt for a more retro look and scrounge up some old papyrus and a quill!
Let us know what works best for you and post a comment below – we just love hearing from you!
