Brad is also going to get a Kindle Fire. He's wondering whether to get the Fire HD, which is a bit more expensive. Leo says yes. It has a higher resolution and a much faster processor. So for another $40, it's definitely worth getting the Fire HD.
Brad also needs to get a router and wants to know what to get. Since Brad lives in an apartment, it may be a good idea to get a dual band router that also uses 5.0Ghz. He can use WiFi Analyzer on iOS or Android to see what frequencies are available and that people are using. That way he will know what's best for his area.
