Amazon is running a sale on Kindle eReaders and Fire tablets. While prices start as low as $40 for a 7 inch Amazon Fire tablet, the sweet spots are probably the Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 tablets, which are on sale for $30 to $50 off their already-low prices. While Amazon’s tablets ship with a modified version of Android called Fire OS, it is pretty easy to install the Google Play Store if you want to run apps that aren’t in Amazon’s Appstore.
But if you don’t want to jump through those hoops, there’s always the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite – with a list price of $160 and up, it’s an 8.7 inch Android tablet that comes with Google apps and services pre-installed. And right now Best Buy is selling a model with 64GB of storage for $110, which is the lowest price I’ve seen so far.

Seems like a pretty good deal on that Acer Swift X, in terms of bang for your buck. For anyone in the market for that tier of laptop, try cross comparing to the Lenovo Legion 5 15. The internal specs are nearly identical, but the Lenovo has the 5800H vs the 5800U in the Acer. Otherwise I think the RAM, SSD, GPU, etc. are all the same. The Lenovo is 1″ bigger of course, and has an extended keyboard, but that’s down to personal preference.
Forgot to mention, the Lenovo lists at 50 bucks more.
