Need an e-book reader with web browser

Hi, guys, I'm sick of reading on LCD monitor. I want more eye-friendly device like an ebook reader with e-paper display. I don't really read electronic books, what I read are PDF files, Word, TXT... and text websites, like Wikipedia. So I need an e-reader with web browser. And I insisit on touchscreen.
Please give me recommendations.

The Nook Color

I've seen the Nook Color mentioned many times in these forums, but I can't attest to it personally.

"As far as general navigation goes, on every screen (not just your home base), you've got a small tab which pulls up a menu from the bottom of the page with familiar Nook selections: library, shop, search, extras, web, and settings."

"The library section is organized by books, magazines, and newspapers, but also gives options for creating your own sets of content ("my shelves"), working with PDFs and other docs, music, images, and video (M4V only)"

As I said, I am sick of reading LCD screens.
No LCD, please.
I want E-Ink, Mirasol, Pixel Qi or other eye-friendly technology.

Even my first gen kindle has a browser.

I wonder if there are other criteria not told here. All the e-ink systems I see have been reviewed and what's stopping you today?

Define "decent"

My old kindle has a decent browser. It works well with the site and other sites. Sorry but to go any further we'll have to define this in good detail.

Be sure to take another look at the Kobo/BarnesNoble/Sony units.

eBook with web browser?

First: Amazon Kindle if you are looking some cheap. If you buy the 3G version no matter how long you use it ATT isn't going to charge you.

Second: Nook Color, its really good but more expensive.
