What tablet should a student get?

Hi im a college student who is looking for a small tablet to take to class and lab meetings. I don't want to spend a whole lot because I have a computer already, but I need something that i can easily take with me, download lecture slides, take notes, and get information on. I was looking at the nexus 7, but seeing as Asus just announced a stealth release on a new tablet, I'm wondering if I should buy it, or wait a bit if the tablet selection is going to sky rocket soon.
thanks for the help!

    Asus just announced the MeMO Pad. It's very similar with the Nexus 7, here are the specs:

    - 1024x600 resolution screen
    - 1GHz VIA WM8950 processor
    - 1GB of RAM
    - 8GB or 16GB of storage
    - 1-megapixel front-facing camera
    - microSD card slot (up to 32GB)
    - 5GB free Asus Web Storage

    It's said to be sold for only $149 but you have to wait possibly until April to get one.
