Ummm, most students type out reports and papers and such on computers so it would be much easier and less stressful to be able to do that in your dorm room than to have to go to the library each time, research is also much easier on the internet. I'm sure the iBooks would come with the neccesary software preinstalled because the institutions are not going to expect you to pay for software for a computer your are not even going to keep. Computers have become an integral part of education today, even in middle and high schools and in some areas elementary school, these are not meant to be gaming machines.......Originally posted by mymemory
I'm not really sure if having a prtable computer in school is gonna help you with better grades, I really do not think so. It will help the software piracy for sure, specially games.
