What's the best device for reading and annotating PDFs?

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. [more inside]

There can only be one ring to rule them all. Or not.

Kindle3 or Color Nook or Samsung Tab or just sticking with dead trees? I've been reading so many reviews, forums, tech support, askme posts, that my head is spinning and I don't know what to think. The new Kindle and Nook are supposedly vastly better than their predecessors, so I'm hoping mefites with new holiday toys might be able to shed some light. [more inside]

Annotated classics in ebook format?

I really love the Power Moby Dick site, which gives very helpful annotations and puts obscure words and expressions into a modern context. Where can I find more of this for other classics? And most importantly, I want to find formats that can be downloaded and viewed on my Nook e-reader. [more inside]

It's on the web, but I want it in my pocket. Sort of as a book.

What's the best / easiest way to process / format material I've downloaded or copied from the web to read on Apple's Books app? On a Kindle? If I format for the Kindle, would the material be synced on both devices if I use the Kindle iPhone app as my reader? I've been using Calibre to rip ePubs, but there has to be an easier way than what I'm doing, which takes forever. [more inside]

Kindle not really for me?

I've been giddy with excitement and waiting anxiously for my kindle 3 ever since I ordered it a month ago--and then yesterday I read David Pougue's review and the comments to his article. Now I am sad and depressed. They are saying horrible things like when you buy the eBooks they don't really belong to you and you can't share them and worst of all I won't be able to read the eBooks from my public library on the kindle. Can this be true? Should I just pack up the kindle and send it back? Woe is me.

iPod NYTimes app or Kindle NYTimes subscription?

Cost aside, should I swap an iPod Touch + NYTimes app with a Kindle + NYTimes subscription? My iPod Touch is too distracting; a Kindle would be less so. On the other hand, I love the free NYT app. [more inside]

US Kindle 2 in Europe

In January, I'm leaving the US for Europe, where I'll be for the next six months, if not more. I want to buy an E-reader, so I can continue to read books in English, and also to save myself from lugging books back and forth. Given the circumstances, seems to me the best choice is to buy a Kindle 2 right now. Am I right? [more inside]
