Another happy PE owner here. Bought mine through Woot a little more than a year ago (thanks Obsessed2!) mainly as a backup to my Nook Color.
Here's the thing, though...I use my PE every single day in a variety of ways. The NC gets fired up maybe once every two weeks.
When traveling, I take the Nook and leave my PE safely at home since I know I can always replace the former. I'd be crushed, though, if anything happened to my PE.
So enjoy! I think you'll have many happy hours playing with your new toy
