    I researched other reviews and talked with owners of the Kindle 2 and DX.
    I chose the kindle2 and I am very pleased. The only difference I can see is the extra price.
    I am happy that I did not spend the exta. The kindle2 is great and I have not been able to put it
    down since it arrived yesterday. It is easy to use and the books download in less than a minute.
    If you have any hesitations, let those go and purchase the kindle you will not regret the purchase.
    I wish I had purchased it sooner.

    It is a beautiful, competent, well-made just-the-right-size package!

    Who am I to say so? I built my first computer in 1959 and have published and lectured nationally on computer topics. I’ve made a lot of mistakes, but learned some stuff. Every day I shop the computer market and search for new products.

    This Acer replaces a two-year parade of eight other netbooks, starting at 12″, then assorted 9 and 10″ models. Those were good, name-branded systems, but — even hot-rodded with huge 7200RPM drives and all the RAM they could handle — did not really earn my love.

    The Acer tops the pack with easy access to upgrede the memory and hard drive, but little need to do either. As a newer generation netbook processor, replacing the well-established Intel Atom line, even with a single core (and rumor has it the dual core model will be released here, soon), it rocks in all of my applications. Note that I am not a gamer and do not do Olympic graphics, so those needing THAT kind of horsepower may be disappointed. Still, for home and business use (I’m a dentist), it is a solid performer and well-poised in the pricing realm. My endorsement as a netbook and a portable computing system for general use is without reservation. Certainly for a student, through professional school, it is a classy winner. Mine is IN-YOUR-FACE red and strikingly singular in its appearance.

    Did I mention I really like it? Those other eight products did not excite me enough to do a product rating; this one does.
