The premium Kindle Fire HDX tablets don't usually seem like a great value to me, but maybe they're worth picking up this holiday season with today's sizeable $125 discount. This deal is only valid today (December 15th) and it covers several flavors of the previous-generation Fire HDX.

The 3rd gen HDX tablets are still for sale on Amazon, but they're pretty similar to the new ones. The price is only $30 less than the new tablets most of the time, but with $125 off you can get the 16GB WiFi version for $224 (with special offers). The 16GB LTE version can be had for $324 (special offers) or $339 with no special offers.

The 8.9-inch LCD on this tablet clocks in at 2560x1600. Inside is a Snapdragon 800 and 2GB of RAM. It doesn't have Google services, of course, but it's still a capable piece of hardware at a good price.
