Decisions! Decisions! Decide!
Kindle Fire or Tablet?
My next step is to evaluate the resources available to me. I have $150 now in my savings. I have my mom to drive me to the store and I have a computer to shop online. I can look online at reviews and see what other customers thought about each product. I also have a bank to use if I decide that I don’t want either product. I can save my money for something better.
After I estimated my resources, I am now going to consider my alternatives. I can buy a rebuilt Kindle Fire for $130 at Best Buy. Another choice I have is to buy a d2 Pad Android 4.1 7" tablet from Big Lots for $90. I know that the Kindle can search online, play games, and store books. The tablet can play games and search online as well. I know people who have the Kindle Fire, but I do not know anyone with that brand tablet.
After I considered my alternatives, I gathered information. I searched online and looked for cheaper tablets and sales on the Kindle Fire. I also checked reviews from other people on the quality of both products. The cheaper tablet had a review of 4 out of 5 stars and I found it for $56 with free shipping. The only problem is that there were only 9 reviews, so there are not many opinions. The Kindle Fire also had a rating of 4 out of 5 stars, but there were over 8,000 reviews, so there are a lot of opinions to go by.
After gathering information I felt like I was ready to make my decision. I decided to buy the Kindle Fire. I chose the Kindle Fire because I knew a lot of people who had one and loved it and I had enough money to buy one. Also, some tablets require a media plan and Kindle Fires do not. I will also have enough money left over to buy a few aps.
I chose to buy the Kindle Fire and I think it was a good choice. I can search online, play games and read books on it. I had enough money for it and I really enjoy it. In the future I will use the 4H decision making process to help me make decisions.
