    Why go refurbished? Brand new is $119. Where they do get you is on the cover, and those prices can fluctuate depending on your preference.

    Thanks
    I have the kindle Fire HD. It's very versatile, I can play games, watch Netflix, Amazon video, Read/purchase Kindle books bought from Amazon. It even takes pictures. I don't leave home without it.

    Personally, I wouldn't, but some people some people pride themselves on being thrifty. Just trying to help as someone else said they were planning to purchase one in the next day or so.

    Remember, I'm the guy who won't drink at a colmado...

    The Fire HD is the best value in a tablet anywhere. And it is easily hacked to link with the Google Play Store, so you're not limited to just the Fire Store.

    I have 2 Fire and have gifted a few. I've picked mine up for about $40 USD when on sale which seems to be fairly often.

    I use a $40 Digiland tablet from Best Buy for everything, including Kindle and Audible. I have two 1500mA power packs to keep it charged all day.

    I love my Paperwhite, but I also have a Fire 8. Paperwhite is for books only, while the Fire 8 is for Netflix.

    I decided to go with the new Paperwhite, not interested in a tablet, it's just for books.

    Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!
