A backpack full of bulky textbooks is going the way of the abacus. Students at Manhattan’s top private schools are set to receive their own sleek $500 iPads from their schools next year, ditching their No. 2 pencils for touch-screen technology. At the posh Trinity prep school on West 91st Street, where tuition is $38,000 a year, middle-school students will “lease” Apple’s premier tablet computer from the school, according to faculty. The first batch of 20 iPad 2 tablets, which have two cameras and high-definition video recording, will be put to use by middle-school science students this fall.
