16GB is enough ~ the NC only has 8G internal, and you can use the stock side (unrooted or rooted) to play storage-intensive movie files from a non-bootable SD card.
I will first try the SD card way and than later the manual nooker....
So is there a downside to upgrading to 1.4 or keeping or upgrading the kernel of the internal stock system?
Upgrading to 1.4 IS upgrading the kernal of the internal stock system ~ those "upgrades" are complete system replacements. That's why you can upgrade to 1.4.2 right away, it doesn't care which version is already there.
Advantages: Supports Netflix app, supports Nook Comics, supports .cbz files, supports the new Magazines format and Children's Books with audio.
Disadvantages: some people don't like using the nook button to bring up the navbar, but if you root the stock system, there are Android market replacements that can replace that.
The main disadvantage to rooting the main memory is if it ever does another system update, you will have to root it again. However, since the Android Market will remember what apps you downloaded, getting your apps back after a stock upgrade is not too much trouble.
And like I said I already purchased angry birds through the store... That means I am linked ... Right?!
As far as responsivness playing angry bird and after playing it in the maIn screen... You think that is a app issue?! But why would it still do it after closing the app?!
It might not be actually fully closed ~ it might just be sleeping. A full power down will flush any cruft like that out of the RAM. Just guessing, since I don't have Angry Birds, and if I did I don't have the system tools to check for apps that have not fully shut down.
