What I've seen of those third party reference managers and PDF program's looks great though.

I've had to alter my annotation process, but I'm surprised at how quickly I've picked up on a new style.

That said, I've only had my iPad for a few weeks, and Goodreader is the only app I've used. There may be others that work better, but I'm very pleased with this one so far.

It's amazing. Makes things infinitely easier. PDF Expert is by far the best option there is. Brilliant Dropbox integration and a really sexy retina design. Well worth the price.

Thanks for the input guys. I wonder if I could mention it to my advisor and hope good things happen :lol.

I think I'm going to go check one out in a store. My primary reason for wanting a tablet would be for reading papers and marking them up. The cost is a little hard to swallow though.
