Amazon Shrugs, Decides to Sell the Kindle Fire HD 7 for $79 Today

Today only, Amazon's knocking a whopping $60 off the price of the surprisingly-great Kindle Fire HD 7, bringing it down to just $79 (or $99 for the 16GB version). That's $30 less than the previous all-time low price, and even $20 less than the Lilliputian Fire HD 6. You could go so far as to call it a <clears throat> "fire sale."

This thing isn't going to replace your computer, but it's a perfectly serviceable Netflix-streaming, game-playing piece of glass, and at $79, that's a-okay. If you're on the fence, be sure to check out Gizmodo's review (which is technically of the 6" model, but internally the 7" is identical), but remember that this price is only available today, so don't dawdle. [Kindle Fire HD 7, $79. 16GB model also available for $99]

Need a cover to go with it? Amazon's selling a bunch of them for $12 as well, today only.
