You've got it. Indeed, backing up the Kindle books to your PC is almost pointless unless you strip the DRM from them.

Otherwise, if you get a new device, you redownload your previously purchased books from Amazon once you register the device. Since Amazon keeps a library of all your Amazon purchases this isn't an issue.
