Apple and Microsoft: “All tablets that aren’t total shit are $100 or more.”

We’re gonna play MythBusters for a second and tell you that that’s simply not true, and Amazon is the one to prove it.

If you’re shopping for a tablet but are doing so on a budget, just know that the Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet is $30 off and just $49.99 today — and it has literally never been cheaper.

The tablet market was truly turned upside down when Amazon debuted the Fire tablet. Getting an HD display, Dolby Atmos audio, and hands-free Alexa for about 13% of what the cheapest iPad costs is a pretty amazing feat — and Amazon claims the HD tablets are twice as durable as the iPad, too.

Today’s deal is on the 8-inch model, offering the perfect happy medium size between the 7-inch and 10-inch models. Inside the HD 8, you’ll find a 1.3 GHz quad core processor 1.5 GB of RAM, and 16 or 32 GB of internal storage. It’s not the tablet for heavy-duty endeavors like graphic design or exporting videos, but for Netflix, Spotify, Facebook, or checking home security cameras, it’s golden.

There are over a million apps and games to choose from, and if you’re a Prime member, you’ll also get free access to over 1,000 movie and TV show titles, songs, and books.

Need a bomb Valentine’s Day gift that won’t completely put you out? Here’s your answer. Regularly $79.99, you can save $30 and get the 16 GB model for $49.99. (This all-time-low price is guaranteed to garner some attention, so hop on before it sells out.)
