Amazon Web Services Kindle DX

The Amazon Kindle DX's bigger screen results in a better overall reading experience, but the trade-off is a much larger device and this won't suit everyone. It is a very similar device to the original Kindle and which one you choose will depend on personal preference.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
