Not really sure how that works. But if it's possible at all, I hope that they decide to do it! And if they decide to do it, I hope they also make access to it less clunky than as it is on my K1. My understanding is that on the 600 you just double-tap the word and the dictionary entry is displayed at the bottom of the page. On my K1, you have to scroll to the line containing the word of interest, then click, then select "Lookup...", then wait for what seems like a pretty long time. The resulting display shows the definition of all the words on the selected line.

The math geek in me insists that both prices are a 20% discount of the suggested retail price. But I didn't know you could get a new one for $179 elsewhere--thanks! My understanding is that most refurbs are pretty much brand new anyway (returns) and $20 would buy several books, so I'm still leaning toward a refurb. Now if I can only figure out a way to convince my wife that I need to replace my K1....
