Beijing: A high school in China has equipped its senior students with iPads in a bid to replace books and help students in their studies, China Daily reported.
Jinling High School in downtown Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu, has provided 30 students with the Apple tablets to reduce the burden of school bags from at least five kg to less than one kg while saving book expenses by thousands of yuan a year.
