Amazon is currently selling its Fire HD 8 Tablet for just $49.99 in multiple colors. Normally this would sell for around $80, so this represents a saving of almost 40%.

The model on offer comes in black, yellow, red, or blue and has 16GB of storage inside. There’s support for microSD cards if you do need more space, though – cards of up to 400GB are supported.

Regardless of which color you choose – you should totally choose black, though – you’ll get the same tablet underneath. That means there’s an 8-inch display as well as a 1.3GHz quad-core processor. And while it might not be winning any speed benchmarks compared to things like an iPad Pro, it’s more than sufficient for the tablet and its likely uses.

Those uses are things like reading Kindle books and watching Netflix, and you can even use it to sit and browse Instagram if that’s something you’re up for. There are games to be enjoyed here as well, including the ever-popular Roblox.

While this is never going to be the best tablet around, it’s one that’s available for just $49.99. That makes these things the kind of price that warrants having one in every room of the house, just in case you need to Google something. It could also act as a giant controller for Spotify and other music streaming services, too.

And don’t forget Alexa. With the Alexa app you can control your whole smart home right from your $49.99 tablet, too.
