intro: "The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn't think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential."
Steve Ballmer
1: Weight causes pain on the back. http://well.blogs.nytimes.com...
Backpacks weigh a certain percentage of our body weight. The New York times agrees. We have so many things. Books, notebooks, instruments, papers, pencils, calculators, and more. All this weight puts so much stress on our backs.
2: Tablets are needed. http://www.newstribune.com...
We need tablets. Why? The answer is in the fact that they can hold more info on them. Not to mention they are really light.
conclusion: Goodbye textbooks and hello tablets.

I apologise for forfeit. Internet went down, then I forgot. If the debate could continue, that would be great, but the debate being over would be fine too I guess.

Kindle should replace textbooks. Much more specific and will definitely be useful.
