All this hype about how the iPad will be great for students is bull. First there is no handwriting tech for taking notes and the other issue is the price of text books. looking at the prices at other e-books on the ibooks store it seems that they go for about the same price as new physical copy. Allot of students buy used copies of books for cheap, and the sell them when they no longer need to use them. If you can't buy them for cheaper or sell them off, the ibooks are gonna be way more expensive.
