If you're looking for one of the overall best tablets money can buy in 2023, Amazon's Fire lineup is... probably not the way to go.

Normally priced at a very reasonable $99.99 and up, the hexa-core 12th generation Fire HD 8 can be had at the time of this writing for a cool 40 bucks under its MSRP in both 32 and 64GB storage variants with or without lockscreen ads.

After all, there are not a lot of 8 or 10-inch Android-based devices available at these kinds of prices... anywhere in the US.
