​Amazon Fire 7 Tablet

Best Budget Buy

The Amazon Fire deserves a spot on this list not for its cutting-edge hardware, but its $50 price tag, which successfully pushes the boundaries of tablet bargains. Even though it's a decidedly affordable device, the 7-inch Fire tablet is a surprisingly snappy performer that's perfect for web browsing, social networking, and streaming the retail behemoth's vast library of movies and TV shows.

Unsurprisingly, the slate can be best enjoyed with an Amazon Prime subscription. There are four colors to pick from — black, yellow, red, and blue.
