I just bought a NC today. Missed the B&N sale (was my intention to catch it on sale) but I found a good eBay listing and nabbed it. I intend to use it as a tablet and not as an eReader, in case that matters (my first tablet). I've got a Droid X and I can't imagine using that thing without a screen protector. I used to use a silicon case for protection but have since given up on that as I much prefer it with no case around it. I'm wondering what the general concensus is about your NC and whether or not to keep it naked. And if not, then how clothed? Just a screen protector? Just a case? Both? Would love to hear you chime in on this!
