  • I have both.

    I like the portability of the Kindle. I don't like to be tied to a desk or even a plug in for the laptop. I can take the Kindle anywhere and it fits in my purse. And it's lighter than holding the laptop or even a paper book.

  • I took the free app. It's free. Also I am on my computer a lot anyways so it doesn't make much of a difference to me. You can't miss what you don't know right?

  • Id rather have the kindle so I can read a book anywhere. It does work with the computer if you own one. You can download or upload to the kindle from a PC.

  • I Love my kindle. Its so easy to take with you to dr appointments, waiting on kids at school, etc.

  • I wouldn't want to read a book sitting at my computer. I like to read on the bus, or waiting for my kids in the car. Or in bed. For me a kindle would work better. Unless you have a laptop that you take everywhere. But that would be very heavy.
