Amazon’s Fire line of tablets is one of the most affordable ways to dip into the experience, with some models starting well under $100. You can choose from a few sizes — seven, eight, or 10-inches — and all tablets run Amazon’s own Fire OS. You won’t find the familiar Google Play Store here, but you should be able to get by with the Kindle app, Prime Video, and more.

There aren’t many deals on the Fire range right now, but you can make some savings on the productivity bundles, which include a keyboard case and Microsoft Office 365.
