Results may vary, but I can’t read a 500 word article on a laptop screen, and am glad to say the iPad is a totally different experience. I’ve used a Sony eReader before, and wouldn’t want to trade my iPad for one. Sure, the Amazon Kindle might render text more like a book, but this device has so much more features.

I agree, I gave my Kindle to my Wife. Have not missed it.
