Okay, just got my K2 today and it's in seemingly mint condition (ie: there's not a scratch on it). I've been without a Kindle since February, and boy did I miss it! I was coming from a K1 to this K2 and I LOVE IT! I sold my K1 for $300 back at the start of this year, so I think this was a pretty good deal all in all. The only thing I didn't like about the K1 was the fact that the back cover kept coming off mine and that the buttons were in strange places. Problems ALL solved with the K2.
After seeing all sorts of Nook reviews online now (I watched a 25 minute video yesterday), I am even MORE satisfied with my decision! Thanks for the suggestion on the refurb Desertgrandma! It turned out to be an incredibly wise choice because I ended up with enough money left over to get the case I wanted, AND buy some books!
