To see if some hardware can compete with another hardware, don't look to the price or what some fanboi are saying. Just go look to some benchmarks: go look at Quadrant, Neocore, GLbenchmark etc. figures and judge for yourself.


Yes, please do show us these benchmarks showing that a kindle fire is close to an iPad2 in performance.

Let alone build quality, UI responsiveness, app selection, long term support, etc.. Cmon now let's not delude ourselves.
I drive a Hyundai, it's nice and gets me where I want to go, but I accept it's not the same as a INSERT_PREMIUM_BRAND. No sense in justifying what isn't true.

Yes, but a Honda's pretty darn close to an Acura
Toyota's are pretty much lexus'

Those are probably more apt comparisons that the ones you were considering. Might be slightly less good in some areas you probably don't care about unless you're an asshole, but pretty much the exact same thing.

Plus, the fire is an Amazon product, they've done a pretty good job supporting kindles. I don't think they'll ever be End of lifed.
