Do you use e-readers?

Postby aaakknu » 2020-10-24, 15:58

Is there anybody here knowledgeable about e-reader technology?

I'm looking for a specific kind of e-reader (and wondering whether it actually exists):

1. Easily repairable (with the possibility to easily replace parts such as battery and display)
2. Large size screen
3. Option to attach a keyboard and write on it

Basically, I am looking for something like a laptop, but with reflective display that's not tiring for the eyes and functionality limited to reading and writing.

I want to use it for work, and I don't really need any functionality beyond this, and such a device would be advantageous for me compared to a typical laptop cause I could work with it for a long time without strain for my eyes.

(Do you know of a better forum to ask about it maybe?)

Looks like sth I had in mind. Does anybody have any experience with this?

I use a (not very large) Amazon Kindle for reading various books and it has served me well since 2013. But it seems like you need one for other purposes and these models won't necessarily be a good fit for you. Also, depending on your needs, the main advantage of Kindle readers (especially if you live outside the US) is that you can directly order books from Amazon to your device.
