Fry's ereaders = deal?

They have the Hanvon n516 for $159 and the Aluratek for $149. Are those good deals? I see they have the eSlick for $239 but newegg has that for $199

I'd get the Aluratek Libre, but not the Hanvon N516. The N516 sold by Fry's is using an old firmware and can't do squat.

Get the Libre. It's a great price for a good ebook reader.

I still don't have my first eReader. I use my phone for now. Ive spent the last little while looking at all the old tech and the new tech thats be flaunted. But to be honest I really like the Aluratek and it will probably end up being my first eReader once its gets closer to the 120ish range.

The only thing I see as a drawback is only having 24 hours of battery (well at least its continuous) life.

Added: You know now that I think about it thats not bad at all. In standby mode it lasts 2 weeks I guess.

jetBook-lite has the same TFT screen that Aluratek and 4 AA replacable batteries and can be used with 4 AA rechargable. The price is $129.95 on NewEgg.com
website. You can also use preloaded dictionaries (Aluratek unit has no dictionaries).

Yeah I am aware of the Jetbook Lite. I am just not interested in having something that takes batteries. Thats I guess the only drawback but for me its a big one.
