Thanks for the welcome!
I ordered one of the on sale EB 1150's today. I don't want to jump in with the big bucks until I've read more, and also want to get past the holidays. I'll definitely be buying one of the e-ink products, but I feel I have to get more up to speed on all the pro's and con's before I commit. Right now I'll just be happy NOT to be reading on my little Palm! And exploring some of the format options.
