There was a pretty Slick Deal on the Amazon Fire about a month ago. I bought an HD8 for pretty much the same purpose as you and it works great. It's not an Ultra 4K /3d/Virtual reality screen (my kid's iPad mini is way better), but it works just fine for putzing around. Better than taking a chance with a similarly priced generic tablet.

I know a bunch of people were buying these things en masse to resell on eBay. You can probably find something there. You will pay more than they got it for in the deal, but if it's new it's still be cheaper and just as good (relatively speaking) than the big $$ ones on Newegg.

If you can hold out to Black Friday, there'll be plenty of choices (although no less overwhelming choice wise)

Good luck!
