I don't believe the CPU is different. Storage is faster, though, so perhaps improved responsiveness is a side effect of that?

Paperwhite 4GB
Code:
[kterm]# cat /proc/cpuinfo
Processor       : ARMv7 Processor rev 10 (v7l)
BogoMIPS        : 1987.37
Features        : swp half thumb fastmult vfp edsp neon vfpv3
CPU implementer : 0x41
CPU architecture: 7
CPU variant     : 0x2
CPU part        : 0xc09
CPU revision    : 10

Hardware        : Freescale i.MX 6SoloLite based Wario Board
Revision        : 60000
Paperwhite 32GB Manga
Code:

I seem to remember an article that mentioned the speed increase but stated it was due to a firmware update since the processor did not change between the 4GB and 32GB Paperwhites.

Here's the link: Kindle Firmware 5.8.5 Adds Faster Page Turns for Comic Books, Manga

Maybe the older firmware is faster then the newer firmware.

The speed difference could certainly be attributed to the firmware. I didn't examine the devices closely, only that my wife noticed the difference.

That didn't take long. Either they didn't have as many this time, or the eBay resellers jumped in quicker. But I would keep checking. Sometimes what's available when Woot is selling refurbished Kindles can be pretty fluid.

50% bought 1, 50% bought 3 or more. I'm guessing eBay resellers. It was gone by 5am.

I forgot that you could look up those stats on Woot. So it definitely looks like eBay resellers this time. Good news is that, if there get to be too many of them on eBay, the price might come down there (not as cheap as Woot, but maybe reasonable).

I reckon I'll just wait until Woot gets more in stock. At $90, it was worth getting a spare. Not so much at $130+.

It looks like the $150 ones have jumped up to $160, so I may be wrong about the market getting saturated on eBay.

I ordered one from last week and was pleasantly surprised when it arrived without the special offers. Yay, no ads.
