Nook Color or Nook Tablet to root?

I am considering getting a Nook Color or Tablet, but want to make sure I can root the current devices with an external card, or is B&N making it more difficult to do these days?

Which one, NC or NT is the better one for this, and if NT, is the extra 8GB worth the extra $50?

I want to use it for reading (including my Amazon books), viewing photos and for viewing pdfs and other docs.

Any of them will work fine for just reading although the Tabs have much better overall performance than the Color so if you're going to do much beyond reading I'd go for a Tab (B&N has good deals on refurbs they sell through eBay). Besides the 8GB worth of storage you also get double the RAM with the 16GB Tab so that's something to consider.

Thanks, AnemicOak. I suffer from "if I buy this one now, next week there will be a better one, this one will be cheaper and/or it won't work the way I expected it would" syndrome.

The B7N ebay store seems like my best bet for a good deal.

Ha!! Like how I bought a refurb off ebay yesterday and got an email from B&N this morning telling me how they just dropped the prices on the new model I just got by $50. I could have got a new one for $20 more than I just paid. Not that it matters much maybe, but I'm just sayin'.
