I want to be able to surf the net as well. Plus, I'm not too keen on the idea of having to convert the PDF to a kindle format before reading it.

Yeah, I made that discovery about 3 hours after my original post. I thought resistive touch was a dead technology, so it hadn't occurred to me to even bother listing the screen type.
In any event, I ordered a refurbished Nook Color. It'll be here on Friday, and I've already snagged all the files I need to root and install Cyanogenmod.
Let the fun begin!
