FAQs about Uni Life
It really depends on what operating system you are comfortable with and what the structures of your courses are like. There is no one device that is the most superior or check all the boxes, each device type has their own benefits. A lot of factors also need to be considered, for example, how heavy of a backpack you want to carry with you as you trek across campus (eventually), battery life, functions and features, and software compatibilities. For instance, in a math course, touch screen devices (such as iPad) or pen and paper may become the better selection, especially with all the integrals, graphs, complex formula, and mathematic symbols. Meanwhile, in a fast paced powerpoint-style lecture, having a physical keyboard and bigger screens can be more beneficial, you can potentially type faster, and you can add things to the powerpoint slides (when your professor intentionally blanks some info out on the student slides). When it comes to software compatibilities, most professors acknowledge that students use a diverse range of operating systems, and will strive their best to provide options for each operating system. There is not one top one, and everyone’s needs are different, so see what worked for you in high school and see what devices can help boost your efficiency when you are in lectures or tutorials!
