More people are interested in the Kindle Fire HD, which starts at $199. But for those who don't want to spend that much, Amazon is running a Cyber Monday deal on the entry-level Kindle Fire (8GB), which was updated a couple months ago with a faster processor.

Enter the promotional code "FIREDEAL" at checkout and you can pick up the "new" Kindle Fire for $129, or $30 off its list price. That's a pretty nice deal, though I'd personally opt for the Fire HD.

This is the second time in the last few weeks that Amazon has offered this discount, and I suspect we'll see it again before the holiday season is through. There's a limit of one unit per customer, and while the deal is scheduled to run all day, Amazon reserves the right to end it any time -- or if supplies run out.
