If you need a cheap, more-than-decent tablet in your life, Amazon’s knocking a whopping $40 off the price of Kindle Fire HD 7 and Kindle Fire HDX 7” today, bringing them down to just $99 and $199, respectively.
These tablets aren’t going to replace your computer, but they’re perfectly serviceable Netflix-streaming, game-playing piece of glass, and at these prices, that’s all they need to be to justify their existence. The Fire HD 7 packs a good-enough 1280x800 display and 8GB of storage, which is fine if you want to use this as a portable streaming TV, or something of the sort. Check out Gizmodo’s review (which is technically of the 6” model, but internally the 7” is identical) if you want to learn more.
Spend an extra $100 on the HDX to step up to a gorgeous 1920x1200 display, faster processor, HD front-facing camera, and 32GB of storage. If you plan on using this for games or want to store a lot of movies locally for traveling, it’s worth the price premium. Gizmodo loved it, too.
