Beginning this fall, first year students at the Illinois Institute of Technology will receive an Apple iPad.

IIT envisions that students will take the portable computer tablet to class to take notes, read books and surf the Internet.

The school explains faculty who teach engineering and computer science can also build applications specific to their courses.

The freebee will cost the school about $250,000 dollars.
