It's my experience that if things go wrong with the hardware they don't repair it, they replace it. What kind of warranty is coming with these new units. TIA EDUJ
I noticed on the Sony page, service plans much like the apple service plans.
1 yr $ 69 or 79 , then progressively more up to 4 yrs. It may have been $39ish for one year now that I think about it. These included accidental damage.
Between that and the online offers of $150 in ebooks and another $50 in classics
(unfortunately ends today... has to be registered by 07/31/2007) would make the Sony a real contender as price after all ebooks is $100. But there is also the chase credit card deal if you can find the right offer page and get in. Thats $50 but you need to get approved, get the card, then register on the Sony rewards site, and $299 will be billed to card, and 8 weeks later credited back.
