absolutely agree. If I were to use a reading device the same way I once used textbooks, the only device I would seek out is a SlatePC, even over a convertible/tablet PC. A slate is just the tablet w/o a keyboard. Though a true TabletPC is a nice compromise over a traditional PC.
Working with multiple docs and applications simultaneously is a must feature for a student and professionals. Going to the current ebook readers is like turning the clock back 15yrs or more computing wise.
