Try flipping from page 50 to page 800 of a 1000-page hard textbook. Now try doing that with a digital textbook. You'll find that it's much easier with a physical copy. As for searching for things, that's what the index is for. As long as you can spell, it shouldn't take you any longer to find something in a real textbook using the index than it would to search for something in a digital one.

Also, the only way anything can be infinitely faster than something else is if one thing never actually accomplishes the task or if the other accomplishes it in zero time.
