Amazon's Paperwhite e-reader just dropped to $100

This sweet pricing drops our favorite e-reader back down to its last lowest price. You can get $20 off other Kindles today, too.

Nothing says “I love you” more than the gift of digital books. Or at least, that’s what I tell my wife when I want a new e-reader. Anyone looking for a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift should take a look at Amazon today: The online retailer—as well as other retailers like Best Buy—are selling the Kindle lineup for $20 off. 

You can pick up the base Kindle for $60, the Paperwhite (Wi-Fi) for $100, and the Kindle Voyage (Wi-Fi) for $180. Note that these prices are for the models that display “Special Offers”: aka advertisements. You’ll have to pay $80, $120, and $200 (respectively) for the ad-free versions.

If an e-ink reader isn’t to your liking, the Android-based Fire and Fire Kids Edition tablets are also on sale. You can get $10 off a Fire tablet, or $20 off either a Fire tablet two-pack or a Fire Kids Edition tablet.

Of the bunch, our recommendation is of course the Paperwhite. It’s currently our top pick for best e-reader, and it’s back at the lowest price we’ve seen for it. While it lacks some of the luxury features of the Kindle Voyage—like PagePress, which allows you to turn the page by pressing on the bezel, as well as auto-adjusting screen brightness—the Paperwhite still offers a crisp 300ppi display and an manually adjustable light for reading in darker environments. Most people should find it a solid, satisfying e-reader.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
