My kindle really doesn't feel like a toy at all, it has a very solid build quality, and it's made of metal, I'd hardly call that toy-like, or laptop-like.
I didn't mean toy-like as in fragile or anything like that, it just seems to me that the color Nooks and all that are become more like tablet-lites with facebook and music and such. I'm kindof a hipster-curmudgeon so I like the plain utilitarian feel of my Nook. It has an MP3 player but very little space, so I don't use it, and it has a web browser but it's kinda primitive, so I don't use it. In my mind, the thing's just for reading. The idea of a more fully-featured eReader just isn't that appealing to me.
