SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi, everyone! I'm about to start clinical rotations again, and I'm trying to figure out whether to buy a netbook or an iPad. I want something extremely portable, that I can take to clinics with me and: 1) use for writing discharges and ordering labs etc (since we're often short on computers in the hospital and it's annoying to waste a lot of time standing around waiting for one). 2) easily carry around (iPad might be better here since it would fit in my white coat pocket, which I don't think a netbook would do). 3) take notes on in lectures and rounds (here a netbook might be better unless I buy the roll-up keyboard for the iPad). Do you have any opinions about which would be more useful in clinics? Thanks!
