Thinking about picking up an Amazon Kindle Fire, but find the $199 price tag too high? Amazon is now offering refurbished models for $179

Amazon Kindle Fire

Yeah, that’s only $20 off the list price — but Amazon offers the same 1-year warranty on refurbished Kindles as it does on new models. So there’s actually not much risk associated with buying a refurbished model.

The Kindle Fire has a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1 GHz TI OMAP 4 dual core processor, and 8GB of storage. It’s designed to work with Amazon’s digital book, music, movie, and app stores — but the device has also proven popular with hackers that have managed to replace the default Android-based operating system with custom versions of Android including CyanogenMod 9, and MIUI.
