What's the best device for reading and annotating PDFs? I'm trying to decide between a tablet pc (maybe the Lenovo X220T), a netbook fitted with a PixelQi screen, an Entourage Edge, an OLPC, or some sort of e-reader. Any other suggestions, are of course, welcome.

The Kindle is a great device, but the lack of PDF support kills it for me. Does anyone have experience with a PixelQi fitted netbook?
I'd prefer to be able to hold this device like a kindle or a book, so the fact that Pixel Qi only supports a select few netbooks counts against it for me.
I'm assuming that the outdoor viewable LCDs available on some tablets will make for a good reading experience because you could turn off the backlight to reduce eyestrain. I'm not sure how favorably this compares to e-ink.
The iPad, I assume, is safely out of the running, because of its glossy screen. I find it hard to believe that you could read a few hundred pages a day of text on it, but correct me if I'm wrong.
