I came about ----> <----- close to buying a Kindle Fire over the holidays for myself. But, at $200 is seems a bit, I dunno, there was something cool about it and something that was lame.

So, I get an e-mail today saying that the Amazon Gold Box special is the refurbished Kindle Fore for $139. This is certainly tempting, but the lack of TV-out is making me a little meh to it. I then to like to plug stuff into my TV to watch anime and what not.

So, at $139, is it just buy it and try it or just wait and buy a Ruku when they come out with the refreshed third generation model?

Depends on what you want it for... Kindle Fire is great for just browsing web pages and reading on... but if you wanna shell out the extra $400 for the new ipad for the apps go ahead... Just expect minor burns if you use it for a long time because i heard it gets hot (116ºF or 47ºC) >.> if you are running a bunch of apps or some games that require lots of power.

If you just want the TV out thingy, id just get a ruku.

Amazon prime customers :like me, can watch content for free on kindle. Lots of fun to stream mp3 or videos. no real os to speak of so only kindle apps work. I bought one, love it, cr works fine on it. I would buy a new one though, I dont have great results with anything refurbished.

It's a bit late now, but I am 99% sure it had the same 1 year warranty.

I decided to pass on this deal. I was informed that I need to turn back the laptop I use to teach with at the end of the semester if I decide to teach at another university. Looks like I am going to be buying a new laptop instead in May/June.
