The Nseries also comes loaded with other productivity applications, like thw QuickOffice viewer application. Their Eseries line is targeted towards the enterprise user and comes loaded with the full version of QuickOffice that lets you view and edit documents. You can also upgrade the view-only version to an editable version and I'll be posting some thoughts on the latest and greatest version in a week or two.
