GREENSBURG, Pa. —

A western Pennsylvania university is offering free iPads to all full-time students starting this fall.

Seton Hill University in suburban Pittsburgh says about 1,500 students are eligible for the Apple tablet computers. The highly anticipated product goes on sale Saturday.

University officials say the iPad will make electronic textbooks easier to download and use. They also say it will let students create and share work instantly with peers and faculty.

George Fox University in Oregon will offer incoming freshmen the choice between an iPad or an Apple MacBook, depending on whether they want something more mobile or something with more computing capabilities.
