I would double check compatibility, especially with any multimedia functionality with the textbooks you know you will need before committing to a specific platform.

I’ve never used them for a text book but I have an Ipad and a Kindle.

How much are the books to download? Are you ok with the fact that you can’t mark up the book? I love my Ipad but I don’t think I’d want to use it for school…

One thing about ipad is that it has backlighting, so like a computer reading on it hurts your eyes. If you are thinking of using it for textbooks and plan on doing lots of reading I would look into other ereader options.

What @PuntaCanaBride said. I have a Nook (not the color, the e-ink kind) and it is WAY better than reading on an LCD screen.
