The upgraded Kindle Fire may be enticing with a $159 price-point, but power-hungry users may need a bit more. If you are a fan of 7-inch tablets, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 is your best bet. It has all the great specs that the Kindle Fire HD family members share, and comes with a very attractive $199 price tag.

The tablet features a 1280×800 7-inch display, a 1.2 GHz dual-core OMAP 4460 processor and all the new awesome features Amazon touted during the announcement. We have managed to get some hands-on time with this little guy and can tell you that it performs very well for its price, while it won’t have you flying through apps and websites.

Without further ado, here is our very own Chris giving the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD a go:

Not bad, right? Sadly, Amazon didn’t let us play around with the 8.9-inch versions of the Kindle Fire HD family, but you can expect it to be relatively similar. Save for that stunning 1920x1200p display – boy is that HD!

Either way, if this is the one for you, you can go ahead and pre-order it at and it should ship directly to your doorstep by November 20th.
