After a week, I think I'm falling in love with my NT! Rooting has made it uber functional and I've been gorging on the $.10 apps/games and the Amazon free app of the days. Absolutely blows away our old gTablet, this thing is in use almost all day. I take it with me as a ereader and when it comes home, the kids take it as a game machine. After kiddie bed time, I use it to surf the net while veging in front of the tube. Now my wife wants one too. When they eventually start blowing out the refurbs via ebay like they do for the Color, I may pick up a couple more. I know there's still the bootloader issue, but all in all, great job B&N!
