Thanks all for the kind replies.
I have just happily returned with a PRS 650! The manager was able to tack a 50$ off coupon to the 219 price match. It sucks that he couldn't match the 209. But overall, at $190 Canadian including tax, I still say it was rather good.
I'm now happily charging my ereader, and eyeing ebook covers for tomorrow.
The first book I plan to read is Incidents of a Slave Girl.
