It's not hard to figure out why Amazon constantly ranks among the world's top five tablet vendors despite rarely upgrading the Fire lineup in big ways. The Fire 7, Fire HD 8, and Fire 10, as well as their children-oriented derivations, are reliable, respectably powerful, and above all, incredibly affordable.
