I got my kindle 2 as a gift from my sister and best friend and I also bought the kindle 1. After using both of them, I really like the kindle 1 better. I like the asymmetrical form, the keyboard, the scroll wheel, the sd card, and the removable battery. So, I returned my kindle 2 and when my kindle 1 dies, I'll just get a new one, whatever is available at that time. And having two kindles is so expensive (more expensive when you're addicted to this board ): two skins, two covers, etc. I used my credit card when I bought my kindle 1 so when the refund comes, my sister will just pay for that. It still ends up as a gift .
