Edge's size/weight ratio compare to paper books

Hi,

It looks Edge's size/weight ratio is not very different from the paper books, see for example this one:
http://www.amazon.com/Fundamentals-P...9101229&sr=1-4

* Product Dimensions: 11.1 x 8.6 x 1.1 inches
* Shipping Weight: 3.2 pounds

Weight

Right, I'm a student and typically carry 5 textbooks a day - in a rolling backpack. Some of them are too heavy to hold and read comfortably. What a joy it will be to have all my books in one package that weighs around 3 pounds. I can't wait for the textbook section to open.

I know some think physics is evil, but that book only has 616 pages, not 666.

Some of the programming ebooks that I would want to use the eDGe for come in over 900 pages and are pretty heavy.
