Personally I love the Basic Kindle for reading. It is so light.

The problem is you have 2 different technologies. The e-ink are far superior for reading books. The Fires are just multi purpose Android tablets. I personally have a Toshiba Thrive which has a lot more to offer than the Fire. It just depends on what you want on your device.

Agreed about the Basic being small and light. And it's inexpensive enough that I don't worry much about losing it or damaging it, so I often take it with me, when I probably wouldn't a Fire.

There are many people who don't consider the Fire to be a Kindle at all.

What do you want your Fire to do, or do better, that would call for an upgrade?

I'm not sure if it makes sense to say the Fire isn't a Kindle but a discussion about which Kindle is best probably should be divided into e-ink and LCD Kindles.

For e-ink I think the Paperwhite is the clear winner. I've had a Kindle Keyboard, Kindle Basic, Kindle Touch and now the Kindle Paperwhite and as much as I liked the earlier ones this is, to me "the Kindle".

My first programming job was on a Univac 9400 computer with 80k RAM. No screen. Punch cards for input. A printer for output. Going back from the Paperwhite to an earlier Kindle would be almost like going back to that Univac from my Windows computer. :)

I have both the Fire and the Fire HD and the differences aren't so drastic there. The Fire HD is the obvious better device in a lot of ways but I still find myself using whichever is at hand.

Ugh. I really hate it when people delete their posts. Why start a discussion if you're just going to delete everything you say?

This person has been posting a lot this evening, asking questions that could mostly be answered by reading the product pages. Not sure why they deleted these posts though...

Indeed.

Why are you giving personal opinions of other customers when that has nothing to do with this forum.

Why are you starting threads and then deleting your posts? This is a public forum, and within the guidelines, we can all discuss whatever we wish...
