I just thought it would be nice to have it as an e-reader so I do not have to carry the text books around.
Seems like it is a better tool for rotation years, so I might just wait until iPad 4,5 or so haha
For something more along the lines of an e-reader, with possible WiFi internet access to look some things up, I would look at some Android based tablets. They are more affordable and you can download different e-reader apps (ie. Kindle, Nook, Aldiko, Google Books), I have noticed some books are available in one but not the other.
Some, if not all, of those same e-reader apps can also be downloaded on a computer if that is a preference.
