you might also consider the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. The screen resolution isn't as good as the iPad's, but you have a WACOM digitizer with a pen that works like a real pen for drawings, handwritten notes, etc.
You can also display two programs on the screen, something no Apple device nor any other Android device can do. It helps a lot when making comparison or looking things up on the web, etc.
