Hello, everyone! I am starting clinicals next semester and I am planning on getting an iPad to put eTextbooks so I am able to have my textbooks and study on the go if necessary. My question is whether 32gb will work or should I go for the 128gb (there is no 64gb option). I plan to only use it for the textbooks. I know my school uses an ATI package with physical books and an e-textbook option. Does anyone use their iPad for textbooks, and if so, how much storage do they usually take up? I'd much rather save a little money if I can get by with 32gb. Thank you so much in advance!

I have a total of seven nursing ebooks downloaded onto my iPad and it takes up less than 3GB.

32gb is more than enough storage.

Someone who actually likes the etexts, go figure!

That's so good to here! I'm glad I will be able to save a little money. Thank you for your help!

I tried an electronic text book once because it was the only version that I could get quickly at the time. I absolutely HATED it! If you will have the hard copies too, then it may be a nice quick supplement, but otherwise I would either rent/buy them off amazon hard copy.
