A laptop or a tablet for school?

Next school year we need to get a laptop or a tablet. I was thinking I would get a laptop, because it's a more universal tool, but now tablets seem to have everything I'd need for school. The 16 GB iPad Mini is only 330$ (Not sure about Android or Windows tablets), while at least I the a quality laptop is usually around 600$. I'm not sure which to get. If a getting a tablet would work which tablet would you recommend, and if getting a laptop is the best way to go, which quality laptop would you recommend? What do you think?

    I suggest you get a laptop. It'd be a better choice for school. They last much longer and are more handy for any student. The one i'd particularly recommend is Dell Inspiron i15R-2105sLV. It has features like:

    --Intel Core_i5_3210M Processor 2.5GHz

    --8 GB DIMM RAM

    --1000GB 5400rpm Hard Drive

    --15-Inch Screen,Resolution: 1366 x 768

    --Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Dell Inspiron 5520 is the generic name for Dell's 15" Inspiron R laptops.

    You should read this review to get a better opinion by an actual owner of the laptop:

    Laptop is the only appropriate answer here.

    If you plan on doing anything other than derping around on it (IE actually doing homework etc you MUST have a laptop.

    Laptop = Tool

    Tablet = Toy

    Last year my school was deciding between macbook airs or the ipad. They went with the macbooks and im so glade!!! I personally think the macbooks would do better for school then the tablets because the keyboard and also because the macbooks have much more then the ipads.

    I would probably get a tablet, they do everything you would need for school, I just got a Google Nexus 7, imo it's much better value than the iPad, check it out.
