The Fire HD 8 is a solid, affordable entertainment device, sporting an 8-inch HD display. Inside is a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor and 1.5GB of RAM, which should power streaming and light gaming with ease. And while the 10-hour battery life is not amazing, it’s more than enough to power you through a few movies on a long flight. You’ll have access to plenty of media, e-books, apps and games, as well as hands-free Alexa to control your music, check the weather and much more.

In terms of storage, choose between 16GB and 32GB of space. You can also bundle the tablet with a case and screen protector. The device comes in four colors: Black, Canary Yellow, Marine Blue and Punch Red, though some deals don’t include some colors.
