instead of having a ton of elephantine, weighty, unvaried textbooks, you have a electronic device to search your information. it could be a distraction but i guess we can resist it. it really eases the weight on the back of us students

What would you rather pay for a book that is some money or an Electronic device that costs much more? It would be a much greater price to pay to supply an electronic device to every student than it would to buy textbooks. Also it would put a great burden on students for if broken, scratched,lost, or anything were to happen to it (which happens often, either by Accident or on purpose), the price would be great to replace as it will be to get a brand new device.

It may be weight a lot yet it has been shown that direct contact with an electronic device can be harmful to your sight, sleeping habits and many other things harmful to the human body.
