It was extremely portable, I could carry as many books as I wanted and could read several at a time. I'd also injured my arms and I could hold it to read for long periods of time with no pain.
Fast forward two and half years. DH and I were in the market for tablets. We were going to travel and didn't want to carry the laptop. Barnes and Noble was heavily discounting their Nook HD+ tablets and even though B & N was getting out of the tablet business, they would continue to support them. We bought two. We don't share our toys well.
DH has not had one minute of problem with his! Mine has been problematic from the beginning. It would seize up for no apparent reason, not turn on, not turn off, refuse to charge, you name it. Last night I finally got fed up. I took it back earlier today and exchanged it with no problem. B & N honored the warranty without question. Melissa, the clerk, said it was obviously defective as it was so hot. I took it off the charger this morning and it refused to turn off. Let's see what happens now!
In an can you believe it moment,DH is a computer
