  • Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7
    The Kindle Fire HDX 7 maintains it success recipe, and keeps the same Full HD resolution 1920 x 1200 resolution display and 7-inch screen, along with the 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, Adreno 330 graphics processor, and 2GB of RAM, but it have been given a price cut from $229 to $199.

    Starting from just £95.20 for a 7-inch HD display and a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU with 8GB of onboard storage, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 appears to offer great value for money. There's also a 16GB version offered, which for the extra £16 definitely seems worth it.

    The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 certainly no longer matches the new in terms of raw power and screen quality, though it chops a lot off the asking price. It comfortably trumps the on price, while offering a similar screen resolution to the original.

Amazon Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition

The Good: It has tons of different, wide-variety applications available on the Amazon App Store. It comes with the free and unlimited Amazon cloud storage. In terms of appearance, the tablet as well as its operating system appear to be very polished, and it really does look like a much expensive tablet than one you get for US $160.

The Bad: The keyboard can definitely be improved, and the OS needs a few updates for faster responsivess and better loading times. It can feel a bit laggy sometimes, especially when you are opening up applications, but this is often negligible and can be ignored.

The Bottom-Line: If you are planning to buy a tablet PC that is both affordable and classy, then the Amazon Kindle Fire will be a very solid purchase for your money. It does not look cheap, performs very well, and has a huge variety of content to keep you satisfied.
