Another compact gadget is the Apple iPad, which is a tablet computer that has all the necessary workings of a laptop, but without all the bulk. It can last up to 10 hours, allowing travelers to watch television shows or movies on long flights, and also stores mobile applications to provide endless amount of entertainment.
Student travelers may want to look into buying the Livescribe Echo Smartpen.
