10 Reasons Not to Buy Students an iPad

不能给学生买ipad的10个原因
While an increasingly number of people are replacing computers with iPads, Jeff Somogyi, an editor at deal news, has a list of compelling reasons why an iPad isn’t a better gift than a laptop for a college student — even if the pupil insists.
越来越多的人开始抛弃电脑而使用ipad,不过来自'交易新闻'的编辑杰弗·索默吉却有一长串的理由,论述作为送给大学生的礼物,ipad并非一定比平板电脑好。
As the young are about to matriculate, they’ll come at you with all sorts of "reasons" why the iPad is a "valuable tool" for "learning." Are you prepared to fight back? Are you armed with the knowledge you need to protect your dollars? You better be, because — as we’ll show you — the iPad just isn’t a suitable replacement for a laptop, in terms of meeting your student’s needs.
当这些即将踏入大学门槛的年轻人向你列举一连串的理由,说明ipad是“有用的”“学习工具”,你准备用什么反击呢?你最好有所准备,因为—我们随后将向你展示—就满足学生的学习需求而言,ipad并不能替代笔记本电脑。
His main gripes:
主要原因如下
1. It’s expensive. Factor in data plans for higher-end models, and you could be spending more on an iPad than some full-fledged laptops.
1.太贵。花同样的钱完全可以买到配置更高功能更齐全的笔记本电脑
2. It’s not great for taking notes or editing documents.
2.记课堂笔记和撰写文档的效果不明显。
3. It’s ultra portable and ultra droppable. "There will even be more of a chance that your kid will forget completely that it’s in their bag and, as kids will, fling their satchel across the room — only to be rewarded with a gut-wrenching crack, followed by a cold-sweat-inducing tinkle of broken screen glass. Just try forgetting you have a 5+ lb. laptop in your bag!”
3.移动性更佳,更换起来也更划算。"学生可能会忘记自己书包中还有这么贵重的东西,而把书包在教室里扔来扔去的,这会给ipad造成不可挽回的损坏,而如果换成笔记本电脑,则很可能只会留下一些擦痕。”
4. It makes them a target of criminals. Too easy to steal.
4.容易被贼惦记,太容易被偷。
5. It’s too distracting. Will Angry Birds be the end of this student’s academic career?
5.容易分心。愤怒的小鸟玩的再精通,也不是期末考试内容。
6. There’s no secondary textbook for eTextbooks. Though eBooks are generally cheaper than new textbooks, there’s no option to buy a "used" eBook.
6.电子书代替不了教科书,虽然电子书更便宜,但是却是重复使用的,教科书可是崭新的。
7. It’s meant for one person. Encourage the kid to socialize.
7.可以鼓励学生参加更多的社交活动。
8. It’s just a status symbol.
8.只是一个无意义的身份符号。
9. It’ll be old technology by the time you buy one. New models are always abound.
9.技术更新太快,买到手就已经过时了,不划算。
10. They’ll also want a laptop.
10.他们还会想要一台笔记本。
Never forget: There is no end to the amount of money a kid can or will ask for.
不要忘了:孩子们的欲望是无止尽的。
