Is the Amazon Fire worth it? My laptop is on its last leg.. it is actually only a 2 year old macbook air but I think there are real hardware issues due to it being flash based and I don't have applecare anymore. My husband has the ipad mini and loves it... I just need something so I can surf the web and do email/online bills.

Oh and I also do quite a bit of online shopping and online coupon clipping/printing.
