Is the new iPad practical for classroom use--taking extensive notes in class (with wireless keyboard), preparing Word documents, and presentations?

    Because of its size and weight, and - for me - the need to use a keyboard (Zagg) extension, I find it is actually easier to take notes in class with a paper notebook and pen. It is easier to do Word documents and presentations on a full-size computer/keyboard combination. I like my iPad (2) for reading books (especially the inter-active children's book, Brave, which is visually extraordinary), viewing YouTube.com, and playing games. Another drawback that I have with my iPad is that I am not always near a WiFi facility. I tried - and failed - to install a router at home, so I still have to connect to iTunes to download music, etc.
