i've got the 6th Gen, same 1.3 processor, same 1.5 ram. I can't do much with it and wouldn't buy another one.

Yay!! I'm not in the market for a new Fire since I have an old version, and honestly like some of its features offered back then even if it's slow, but I rarely use it other than for digital comics, digital cookbooks and color needs.

I'm salivating waiting to hear - and hopefully not be disappointed - of any new released e-ink models this year. Here's hoping but you never know. They are trying to push their Alexa devices quite a bit, which gives a bit more incentive to release another fire that supports it, so that doesn't necessarily guarantee other e-reader releases.
