They go in and out of stock quite often. If you're not in a hurry to buy yours, maybe just check the site every few days or so.
Gotcha.

I have a week before I'd seriously need to get a tablet, new semester is starting and my netbook is about to crap itself, something that I use all the time.

Should I get an ipad? Or am I wrong and pdfs are fine on the Nexus 10.

Thanks

How about Nook or Amazon Kindle Fire HD?
I know the specs won't be as powerful as an iPad, ASUS Transformer, Nexus 7 and etc.
I do believe Nook or Amazon Kindle Fire HD is great for books, textbooks and maybe .pdf?

I think :O

Yea I was looking at the Nook HD, but again the aspect ratio is making me nervous. I just need to play around with it more.

Hey there,
I just purchased a new iPad 4 from a local retailer...

It is great already I'm loving it, because of the apps available for me and for school. It love the keypad... It runs smoothly! And is great.
I bought the 32GB version just incase, and as well as that I got drop box to help.

But besides that, you can go through amazon and get your books that way, if there isn't enough enough books for you to get on iBook store I think it is.

But with the iPad you have a great screen and good battery life, mine lasted 2 full days with only factory charge (70%) I'm giving it a full charge after letting down to 1%.

If reading and portability is what you want it for the iPad is perfect smile.gif
I am loving it so far
