The Kindle Fire HD 8 is one of the most affordable tablets for the money. 

It features an 8-inch 1280 x 800-pixel touchscreen, 2-GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.

As we note in our Amazon Fire HD 8 review, we like its fun Alexa features and USB Type-C charging. We also like its impressive battery life which endured 13 hours and 49 minutes during testing.

Amazon wisely outfitted its latest Fire HD 8 tablet with a minimum storage capacity of 32GB. That's double the size of last year's base model Fire HD 8

Weighing 0.8 pounds, 8.0 x 5.4 x 0.4 inches, the Fire HD 8 is lighter, but thicker than its competitors like the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus (1.09 pounds, 9.7 x 6.8 x 0.28 inches) and Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite (1.1 pounds, 9.6 x 6.4 x 0.3 inches). 

Simply put, if you're looking for a lightweight tablet for streaming movies, shows, music, reading, and gaming, the Fire HD 8 is a solid choice. 

If you're a multitasker, you can get the Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus for $79.99 ($30 off).  It sports the same specs as the new Fire HD 8 except that it packs 3GB of RAM instead of 2GB. 

There's no telling how long these HD tablet deals will last, so we recommend you act fast to snag one on the cheap.
