Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today’s list is headlined by a deal on Amazon’s latest Kindle Paperwhite, which is currently available for $100. That’s the typical sale price Amazon likes to slap on its e-book reader every now and then, but it’s still good for a solid $30 discount.
You can check out our review of the Kindle Paperwhite for more in-depth feedback, but the short take on the 10th-gen e-reader is that it’s the obvious choice for most people in this market. It’s still light (6.4 ounces), thin (0.32 inches), and easy to use, with a massive library of things to read. The 6-inch display is still sharp (300 ppi), bright, and evenly lit, and it now sits flush against the display instead of having a cheaper recessed look.
The big upgrade with this particular model is that it’s now waterproof with an IPX8 rating, so there’s no need to worry about dropping it in the tub or getting it soaked by the pool. It can now play Audible audiobooks back through Bluetooth headphones, too—though there’s no headphone jack—and its battery should last for weeks before it needs recharging.
The caveats here are the Paperwhite’s lack of dedicated page-turning buttons—you’d have to pony up for the $250 Kindle Oasis to get that—and its continued use of microUSB for charging instead of the newer USB-C standard. Support for some alternative e-book files like EPUB is still missing, and, like a lot of Amazon products, this discounted version of the Paperwhite will show you ads. More storage is always nice, too, though the 8GB of internal space here should be fine.
If you’re not in the market for a new e-reader, we also have deals on eero mesh routers, iPads, Apple Watches, Nintendo Switch bundles, and more. Have a look for yourself below.
