So I have been in the market for a tablet and have been heming and hawing over what to get. I love the price of the Kindle Fire as well as the size but I like the processor and the functionality of an iPad not the price though. In my researching I talked to a friend who has a Nook 16GB. She loves it and uses it for casual browsing, kids play games etc. Nothing heavy duty. She paid a little under $200 and at the time that was a good deal. Well right now you can do much better by going to CowBoom. You can grab a 7" Nook for $89.99 (preowned). Pretty good for a nice little tablet. Maybe Santa will bring me one????
Ebates is running 1% cash back right now as well.
