Although it may be a tad superficial, when we buy expensive gadgets, we want them to feel expensive. Even if we know they’re well-made, we still want a little heft to tell our caveman brains that we’re holding something structurally sound. This has been an issue with Amazon’s Fire 10 tablet, so now they’re releasing an aluminum version with a silver metal finish.

The great thing is that this version doesn’t cost any more than the previous Fire 10, starting at $229.99 for the 16GB model. A new 64GB version is available for $289.99 and that can also be purchased in the aluminum casing rather than the plastic.

Other than the metal, it’s the same old Fire 10, with its 10.1-inch display, quad-core processor, stereo speakers, 5-megapixel camera, and a microSD slot. The new version is available right now.

I would always prefer a metal version of whatever I’m buying. I’m clumsy, and I tend to drop things, and I’d rather my gadgets get banged up and dented rather than shatter beyond repair.
