Should you spend nearly $300 on a new Kindle?

The old ones are still pretty darn good

The new Kindle Oasis has a sleek profile and comes with a fancy leather case that gives Kindle even more battery life — but it also starts at $290. As my Verge colleague Katie Boehret wrote in her review: for that price, you might think you'd get dinner and a bottle of wine with your Kindle. Meanwhile, you can still get a pretty great, older Kindle for $200 (Kindle Voyage) or less (Kindle Paperwhite). So is the upgrade really worth it? "We" debate.
