    Im guessing you are in college right? I havr downloaded most of my textbooks into the N7. The tablet has paid for itself already. The device is not good for notetaking though.

    Install 7notes, it comes with a handwriting "keyboard" that's useable in any other app like evernote or Google docs via Drive. Makes note taking easy.

    I doubt they will allow you to use it in high school.

    I'm entering my first year of HS (a public school) and the teachers are promoting getting a tablet or computer to help with school. With backpacks being SO HEAVY it's almost necessary to use ebooks instead of actual books.

    If you're trying to convince your parents to let you get a N7 for HS this is why you should get it:

    1. Price- $200 - $25 Free PS Credit= $175 - $10 G Waller Credit = $165 N7!

    2. Reading- $25 worth of FREE books! Say you don't wanna lug around a 50 ton backpack all day (but don't be whiney)

    3. Note taking- There's a plethora of note taking apps for the N7. Evernote even syncs with your computer too!

    4. Writing papers- If you have a study hall, take advantage of it! Buy a BT Keyboard and get ahead on your papers by typing them at school. (Your mom will love that one) Check out my review of the ZAGGKeys Flex in the sig.

    There's countless uses for the N7.


    I hope I helped!

    This is ridiculous! Heavy bags are you kidding me!? What are you an 80year old lady? I think its much better to carry a backpack full of books and notebooks for a high school students . Kinda like an exercise to burn extra calories and build a bit muscle.. On to go! And im talking about general students not just you. Especially with all that junk food kids eat these days.
    I dont know whats gonna happen if all kids gonna have tablets instead of books. For a college student tablet is ideal.. My gf back in 09 was spending around $500 on books per semester. And last two semester we switched to digital format it saved us a bit of money and of course no shipping cost and time. The other good thing is that if you dont have a book you can ask your student mate to take a screenshots of the pages you need and email them to you if of course he is using tablet . I used to take pictures of the pages that i needed with my dslr camera on lunch because some books take more than a week to get to you place and next day shipping isnt cheap extra $40 would surely hit your pocket.

    I'm not sure what you're doing a masters in, but I know for me, I have a lot of long pdfs to read, so it's handy for that.

    Most readings I do are from academic journals in pdf form. The N7 will be useful for me since I can comfortably read, and even annotate, these pdf files. So basically I am using the N7 for more comfortable reading. I am a recent university grad and soon to be masters student by the way.

    In high school, pen and paper is just fine though. That's just my opinion. In fact, I got through my undergrad just fine with predominately pen and paper. I only had a laptop for personal use and essay writing. But all notes I took were by hand. Professors and your fellow students prefer that, since watching someone look at photos on facebook while you are trying to pay attention is incredibly annoying.

    Sheesh, I was in high just 7 years ago and we couldn't even have a Nextel flip phone without getting it confiscated... I had always imagined back then how nice a tablet device would have been for note taking but to say my reason would be to eliminate a backpack full of books seems extreme. Generations have survived with bags full of text books...

    Sorry, SkyRocket, but you're incredulity is just a sign of ignorance. No study that I know of has shown a link between heavy textbooks and strong, fit children. However, there have been studies that link them with shoulder and back problems later in life.

    But, ya know, you can just go on thinking how special and strong you were in high school and how "kids these days" are weaklings. Just, please, don't have kids of your own with this gf of yours.

    (sorry everyone, this kind of ignorance and self congratulation gets under my skin)

    All schools are different. You have to check the rules of your system to know. My daughter's high school allows no tablets at all. It is too easy for them to be on something like Facebook instead of paying attention they said. One kid and his mom were really upset at open house when they found out he couldn't use his iTampon.

    As for the fitness of carrying books, I am a bodybuilder but books is not the answer to the disgusting trend of obesity in this country. How about required gym class!

    What book reader app had a highlighter feature? Kindle I think does, but I can't figure out how to get it to show what page I'm on. Google books, no highlighter I can find.

    I'd like to use this for school, when I start college again

    GalaxyNexus,

    I am not arguing against you at all, but there is no need for the attempt at bragging. The daughter I mentioned earlier is also going into IB and is also an athlete in SWFL. That has nothing to do with the situation. Block scheduling actually helps with the weight load. It does not make it more difficult. BTW, all middle and high schools in our district are now on block scheduling and it has nothing to do with IB.

    Good luck in your football season and stay healthy!

    Ok everyone, let's step back and cool off a bit. There is no need for this debate. If you have nothing to contribute to the OP of the thread, which is the sentiment of getting text books put onto an N7, then please do not reply. Further off-topic comments will be removed.

    I have a IEP allowing me to use the n7 or any laptop/tablet in the classroom

    Ah, that does help you out. Kids with IEP's were allowed to have laptops when I was in high school.

    In my secondary (high) school I was allowed to use a laptop because I'm dyslexic, but I found it was really annoying to carry around so I'm hoping that in college (senior high school) I can use the Nexus 7 with its hopefully incoming keyboard
