I have the first gen Kindle and it is a great. However, I think they should have kept the scroll wheel myself it is easier to get to the line you want to check a definition for a word in the dictionary. Hopefully, they will keep updating the firmware in the old one because the cost to upgrade is to high for me. I just wish college textbooks would be on the Kindle and it would save me the hassle of carrying a book bag.

I see in the video of the new five-way nub and it uses the e-ink screen which probably waste the battery more than the scroll wheel thingy.
