Maggie Award for Best Regularly Featured Web Column/Consumer
I'm not going to tell you the Fire HD 8 is better than the new iPad Mini ($400), which has a better display and is significantly zippier. But at this price the HD 8, refreshed last October with some minor updates, costs an eighth of the price of the iPad Mini. And at $50 it's our top pick for a budget tablet.
