    Unless you want to upgrade your iPhone, another phone is kinda out of the question.

    And the amount of work that could be done with a laptop is obviously higher than a tablet. But reading on a tablet feels awesome too and lightens the bag. If you think your college time will require computer use like making assignment, presentation, maybe coding etc, then I would consider a laptop. And then a tablet.

    You already own the best iPhone to date. It's the 4S. You need not the 5 or the 5s. iPad Air is the way to go here.

    Since you already have an iPhone, there is no point in spending to get a new one. The diff between 4S and latest one isn't much for end user.

    ipad is a toy. Laptop is a computer used for actual work. That netbook of yours isn't gonna cut it for college work.

    If you are serious about using it for college in US, get a surface pro 2. It will serve your laptop and tablet needs.
    It will allow you to run Visual Studio, AutoCAD, Photoshop, MatLab, full MS Office etc. With amazing Wacom active digitizer, you will be able to take notes in the class as if you are writing on paper. At this moment, there isn't a single device that comes close to SP2 as a student companion device.

    On the other hand, if you want a pure laptop, either look for Samsung series 9 or lenevo yoga (whatever highest model you can afford).
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.
    Please do not PM me for support. You will NOT get a reply. Post in the relevant forum section.

    For note taking purposes I would not recommend anything over a laptop/ultrabook, there's no substituting a solid keyboard. SF2 + digitizer won't work because 1) too light for fast typing 2) digitizer too tiring for note taking - similar to the traditional pen-paper, you'll be amazed by how much and how fast you have to write and how tiring it can be 3) You will have a desktop, so no point in sacrificing conveniences just for the sake of having an AIO device.

    I would recommend a tablet only for reading, absolutely nothing else. And for that you don't need an iPad, you can get a generic tab and tweak it to your liking. You're tech-savy so it will not be a problem for you. But get at least a 720p display. I bought a tablet recently and load all my torrented PDFs there, the cost savings of not buying the books paid for the tablet, if only there was a way to pirate the hw software as well lol.

    I would recommend getting an iPhone 5 at least, don't forget that the 4S does not have LTE and once you're here, you'll want it. Only do this if it won't cost you much though.

    I will buy a laptop or might borrow my sister laptop and my dad will buy her one inshallah. Say if I have note 2014 edition or iPad air apart from laptop+powerful gaming machine, can't I use their(note 2014 or ipad air)lte service? They too have lte ryt?
    And Vaia also can I transfer PDF torrent files directly to iPad without the hassling software called iTunes?

    Tethering LTE service is a separate expense, cellular service is not as flexible like BD unfortunately. And if you use some hack to bypass it, you will eventually get caught and fined.

    No you cannot copy-paste torrented files straight to your iPad, you will need to go through the hassle. I'm not exactly sure how PDFs collections are managed in iPad since I never used one for that, but I do know that you can open them directly from whatever cloud storage you are using (highly recommend anything like Dropbox, Box, Copy etc)
