Moved from book forum
I need some advice. I'm thinking of getting two Kindles for my wife and me. I have Wi-Fi at home, local places I go and my travel destinations do to. I carry a laptop for travel as well so I can USB load books as needed. So I'm thinking the cheap Wi-Fi only system should work. Is there any reason I need the 3G? Should I get one of each?
On a related note should I be getting the DX, or one of them DX?

How often do you get new books while in transit?
Would it be painful to wait to get a new book if you didn't think ahead to get on on a trip?
If on a trip and you just wanted to browse would you be frustrated if you couldn't because of a lack of wi-fi?
would you hate it if they updated the web browsing and you couldn't surf where ever you wanted but in on of a thousand near by places?
Do you really need to buy books in foreign countries?
I'm still looking for a good reason that says I should have 3G.
Here are the answers, I still need some advice..
I put all the books I need in my suitcase now. My wife might buy a book while on Vacation if she reads what she brought. So the Kindle will replace real books.
We can wait for a book. Is browsing for a book a good time killer? Is it fun enough to have 3G?
I don't go many places that don't have Wi-Fi.
I don't want to pay for 3G web surfing. I don't think e-ink is going to be better than my laptop or I-pod.
I'm assuming / hoping you can buy books via Wi-Fi in foreign countries?
If I get a Wi-Fi signal anywhere in the world can I buy a book?
