My wife's netbook is about dead and we've come up with three options on what to do. I'm interested if anyone has any experience with a Kindle Fire and what it's true capabilities are since every store only has a demo program that is nothing more than ad for the thing. 1. We fix her netbook, the power port isn't making a connection most of the time when you plug in the AC adaptor. It's about $65 to fix and might buy another year or so out of it. 2. Kindle Fire, Really the only things she uses her netbook for anyway is facebook, pinterest and online shopping. She's also a big fan of Ebooks which she currently reads on her phone. 3. We buy her a new moderately priced and spec'd laptop, something like this. http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0386509 I guess my biggest hesitation is I don't know how well the browser works with those sites on the Fire or if it would be worth it to spend the extra $80 for the actual laptop. What are your thoughts?
