@focus: your dilemma between options a and b is mostly about the question, whether you need a 9.7 inch ereader or not. Was it only an experiment anyway or wasn't the device able to drastically improve your workflow? You can save the 200 dollar for something else then. But in this case, you should be rather sure you won't buy another eink reader in the next 10-15 months, because that will be significantly more expensive and I doubt that the new reader will be much better.
If you loved working with a big ereader and the m92 was really improving your workflow, you should take the investment of the 200 dollars. If you don't, you might miss the advantages of an ereader and decide to buy another one sooner or later. And be warned that _every_ eink reader out there will suffer from the same fragility.
