The Kindle Fire HD 8 tablet is $60

Amazon has a bunch of devices on sale right now, including the Fire HD 8 tablet for $60.

Amazon has put its devices on sale again, and among the discounted items is something for tablet fans: Right now, you can get the Fire HD 8 tablet with Alexa for $60.

This is one of Amazon's famous "special offers" devices, which means you can get it cheaper because you have to put up with onboard advertising--not to mention the specs are mid-to-low range.

This tablet features 16GB onboard storage, an 8-inch screen with 1200-by-800 resolution at 189 pixels per inch, a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, a 2 megapixel rear-facing camera, a VGA front-facing camera for video chat, and dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. It weighs a little less than a pound, and Amazon says the battery can last up to 12 hours under mixed-use (browsing, streaming, and reading).

If you need to talk to Alexa—Amazon's personal digital assistant—it's available at the press of a button on the Fire HD 8. Similar to other Amazon devices, Alexa can provide data such as the weather or your calendar appointments, play music, or control your smart home devices.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
