I realize this is a Mac site and I'm typing this on my iPad. But we are looking for a lower cost tablet for my father. He doesn't have a lot of tablet experience and probably wouldn't do anything too demanding. I'm skeptical of all the android devices out there. He has a kruz tablet and it is horrible. The reviews of the fire seem to be decent for a $200 machine. He's not a gamer, so I doubt he would do any demanding gaming. He enjoys YouTube and will probably use email and some basic apps as well as book reading. Is the scroll lag a big deal? Looking for some quick comments on the kindle fire. Thanks. I see QVC has the supernova tablet for $179 today as well. But like I said I'm skeptical.
