Smile Hello from Baghdad

Currently serving in Baghdad, Iraq, and really looking hard at buying an eBook. I'm considering the Iliad, but I'm not sure which model to go for. I'm running a Mac and currently using a Palm LifeDrive as a reader - great toy, but the screen is too tiny.

I'd love to hear from anybody out there, especially a fellow Mac user.

Hi Sputnk6 and welcome to the Forum. I got a Sony 505 back in January and like it a lot. You'll be able to download books from the Sony and other sites from where you are.

'Cept that you can not run Sony's software on a Mac... and the software is required to buy from the Sony store. They need either a Mac version or support for buying the books directly from the web site.

Welcome! I'm not a mac user, but don't hold that against me. You'll learn more than you can imagine if you just keep coming back here.....
