Amazon’s most recent version of the Kindle Paperwhite is a great value at its regular $124.99 price, but buying one right now won’t set you back nearly as much. The 8GB base model (with Amazon ads baked in) is down to $84.99, which is the same price that hit during Black Friday.
Compared to the standard Kindle, which is on sale for $59.99, the Paperwhite has a higher-resolution display — and a properly backlit one at that (compared to the Kindle’s side-lit display). It’s also waterproof, something that will come in handy in case you like to read in the tub or the pool. These features alone make it worth paying the premium, even more so at this discounted price.
