Tablets hit a unique sweet spot. They're usable wherever and they'll fit in almost any bag. The only trade-off between a tablet and your home PC is that you can't upgrade your tablet without buying an entirely new model.
If you're looking for the reliability of a name-brand product, this deal might just answer your tablet desires.
Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" - $339.00 ($379.00)
Kindle Fire HDX 7" - $199.00 ($229.00)
The Kindle Fire is one of the most popular tablets on the market. The HDX is 34 percent lighter than the HD series, and feature Amazon's "Mayday" button.
Mayday, in case you haven't heard, is a button that instantly connects you with 24/7 video support with a general wait time of only a few minutes. The HDX series come with built-in Office suites.
As with all Amazon-branded gadgets, any Kindle product will get you a free month of Amazon's Prime service.
Both the 7" and 8.9" HDX screen sizes have discounts applied.
If you're looking for something a little cheaper, the previous Fire generation is now available for a budget price.
It might not be as fast as the latest generation, but the HD can do the same streaming, e-reading, and Internet browsing that will make up most of your browsing.
Oh, and for customization fans, I just found a neat service on Amazon that lets you customize your Kindle Fire case with your own photography. Neat!
