Hey everyone,
Been wanting to get an e-reader and saw that Microcenter sells refurbed Nook simple touch for $50 (after tax, probably $55). I wanted the nook cause its not too expensive and heard it does better for reading PDF files than the Kindle. Also, I saw someone loading ubuntu on it and I hear there are lots of hacks and stuff.

Uses: Read pdf journal articles, pdf books and magazines, browse through powerpoints(converted to pdf files).
I want the e-ink, not color readers.

I read that it doesn't support text files but I guess they can be converted to pdf.

Should I get a refurb nook, a new nook, or something else? I saw that Target has a Black friday deal for $50 Nooks but I think it will be OOS in 2 seconds.

I think that's a stupid thing to be doing. I'm am not that desperate or in need of saving $20. I can't believe people fall for this foolishness.
