I vote return. If you decide the new ones don't suit you, I'm sure the old kindle will still be on sale.
(not the fire, though.)

Hey... thanks for all the advice. I'm pretty confident of my decision to return it.
As for PDFs, I realize an iPad is better - I've got one. I also have the "original" Windows tablet with the Wacom enabled pen. At the end, after working with many alternatives, I basically print out PDF articles on scrap paper, mark them up, and then scan them in. I find when I'm doing research or teaching I don't read "one page at a time" - I'm not sure anybody does. When I'm reviewing papers or a thesis, I read one page, flip back to another page to check what the writer said originally, mark up the sides, etc. This is far easier on paper than a tablet. However, sometimes I just want to read a journal article and I was thinking that an ereader could serve.
What I did try was to convert a PDF to Word, and then I sent the Word document to the Kindle convert service: that wasn't too bad.
Looking forward to September 6!
