Ipad, You can get a free Kindle app on the Ipad and have an almost laptop at the same time. The Ipad has the perfect size screen too, but maybe you prefer the smaller reading space? If you know for sure you only want the Kindle, and you will never need an Ipad, and if the Kindle is a couple hundred dollars cheaper, get the Kindle. The Ipad is basically a mini-pc, so you'll get bugs here and there while the Kindle is probably more basic and works perfectly for what it's designed. I have an Ipad and didn't want a Kindle because I could easily get Kindle on the Ipad. I couldn't be happier with my choice.
