    If you have the PDF of the books, the iPad 2 should open them just fine, and if the diagrams/text are of good quality, it will do great. I am in a Masters program with a lot of ebooks, including a couple of 50+ mb files, ranging from a 1400 page textbook, 143 page 66 mb book, and my iPad handles them just fine. FYI, I have the Goodreader app for this ($5 in App store).

    The only time I've see any rendering slowdowns is that I have a 56mb PDF with the zoning maps for my town (45 pages), and it does slow down a bit, with 4-5 seconds for rendering a single page, and 2-3 seconds to zoom in on an individual house lot. I figure each page is over a mB.

    I recommend the iPad for this, it'd make your life a lot easier!

    I recently did a quick search for PDF to ebook converter and there are several options available. Not sure how well they work especially with images but it's something to consider if you want true ebook format. Cheers.

    iBooks

    is all you need to know. You convert nothing. iBooks stores in two libraries, one for books, the other for PDFs
