    more advanced, unique features, and of course, is priced differently.

    The Kindle comes in many different models. There are seven as of today. Each one offers more advanced, unique features, and of course, is priced differently.

    Does "more" imply to "uniques" as well?

    I don't think so. There's no such thing as "more unique." Something is either unique or it isn't. There are no degrees of uniqueness.

    But you're right to be confused. It's bad copy writing.

    It might mean that the new models have more features that are advanced and unique than any other electronic book.

    Or it that the new models have more advanced and more unique features than they used to have in earlier models.

    Or the writer might not know what "unique" means.

    This is just another good reason to stick with paper!

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Thanks. I didn't know about it.

    Do the "more" in the sentence above refer to "features", as we don't have "more unique"?
