I haven't had many Kobos - my first ereader was an iRex iLiad, the second was a Sony. I had a Kobo Touch for a while, but upgraded to a Glo in order to get the built-in light.

I wouldn't recommend trying to take extensive notes on an eInk device, though - the need to refresh the whole screen after every change makes text input frustratingly slow!
I carry my adapters in a medium-sized yarn stuffsack (without the clear bottom). Not much different from a travel stuff-sack, slightly different size, and has two extra 'hooks'. I like it because I don't have to coil the cords, I just stuff them in--it causes less wear.
I use the Kindle app to read, on all my Apple and Windows devices. But I like the fact that Kobo works with independent bookstores--how is the book selection?
I find I can get most of the fiction I want on Kobo, though with new releases it might take a day or so longer for them to appear than on the big vendor sites. Non-fiction is a bit less reliable - it depends on how big the publisher is as to whether they bother with anything other than Kindle.
I use a snake charmer for my macbook pro charger, extension cord for the macbook pro charger, travel mouse, portable hard drive and other cables. Then I actually use a Travel Tray - Genius travel bowl and organizational tool in one. - TOM BIHN for my iphone/ipad charger and associated cables. I actually prefer to keep my computer stuff separate from my mobile stuff, that way I can take the travel tray and sit it on my bedside table when I get to my hotel and my snake charmer goes on the desk. The snake charmer is overkill but I like that I can keep nearly all my cables/accessories in one pouch so I can just remove the whole thing when I get to my destination... same thing goes for the travel tray...
