Well I disagree with you on the first point - adding laptop to the list of devices would cost nothing. The final sentence referring to "even" a PC will, I think, appear to most people to refer to a desktop.

As to your second point, I respectfully suggest that you're simply wrong. I quote:

While “ereader” is a common term for ebook reader, there is also a specific ebook format by that name. eReader cannot be read on any of the ebook readers currently on the market.

That is clearly not about the Sony and I thought it was little unfair to eReader not to point out that there are many portable devices on which the format can be read. As the paragraph stands, if I knew nothing about ebooks I would assume that eReader is of very little use, which is not the case.

Anyway, these were no more than suggestions and I have no desire to go to war over them. As I said I think it's a nice simple introduction.
