Oh okay then.
Yeah this is a bad idea. Highlighting is difficult, harder to read for long periods, battery life issues, etc.

I agree that tablets suck for law school. But I like the idea of downloading books. I did this for a few classes last semester, and it worked really well. There are downsides though, such as the inability to resell your books and having to find a hardcopy to use in the final.

I knew a girl who used it to ostensibly take notes in class, but she was really just surfing the web. But that's what everyone else is doing anyway, so it doesn't really matter. You should probably also have a laptop, but if you can afford an extra toy, why not? It'd be a lot easier for when you're a 2L/3L and in seminars without casebooks. You can just bring a small handbag to class and slip a tablet into your bag without having to carry around a bulky backpack and feel like a 10th grader all over again. Or I guess you could get an 11" notebook.
