Despite all the bad things reported (Hollywood divorces and the world problems) in the media, the world needs a little happiness and the ipad launch and discussion in the media is good journalism and sensationalism. I like this excitement.

Just drove past Infinite Loop in Cupertino this morning, and it was eerily quiet.

dude...think about that. epic failure. text books on ipads or e-readers will cost only marginally lower...because it's not the physical printing that drives the cost.
Might I suggest Econ 101 as your first e-book purchase?
lastly, you've probably never used a real e-reader before like the Kindle. You'll soon find out that reading books on a back-lit display is not going to be an enjoyable experience...and constitutes the reason why eInk is so popular.

iPad with Wi-Fi 16GB
so save your whining. I'm in for 2. But not for what you seem to think is the reason to buy.

I know it will generally be cheaper for me because a lot of the textbooks I need during college (for both of my majors, even!) are popular enough that most are located online for free in the usual places, as eBooks. Free. It really doesn't get much cheaper. Every course I've had this semester (and all the courses I've had in the previous semesters) I've found the textbooks for as eBooks. So yes, much cheaper, in general. The iPad will untether me from having to find a vacant PC to load up the PDF's on.
EDIT: If at all possible, I'd like the iPad to allow me to write small notes in the margins of my PDF's/eBooks, but I can only dream.. Without a notes application (that I've heard of?) on the iPad I'm not sure what I'm going to use my same stylus from my old Touch for.. I was really hoping to take good notes with it.
As for readability.. well, lets hope for the best. I guess if the screen is really horrible, I can always just use the iPad for reading my textbooks temporarily and always relocate to my better personal PC screen otherwise.

The cheapest way other than free. I also use chegg to rent books that I won't need to keep. Or you could get them illegally online......
