That would depend on what you want it for and what your budget is. The Kindle Fire is the most expensive at $199.99 and is pretty much like a combo of an ipad and e-reader. I'm not sure how difficult it is to learn the controls, buot I don't imagine it would be hard. The kindle Keypad (what I'm answering this on xP) is around $119.99 and is more of a basic e-reader with internet acess, though no Java. It is also in black and white, and resembles paper. It, unlike the Kindle Fire, is not touch screen, and has a full keybourd without symbols, which is a seperate button. You can also play mp3 files on it. For like 20 more bucks, you can get it in 3G version. It also comes with a user guide on paper and on the system itself. You do need Wifi/3G on all Kindle to upload books, along with an amazon acount. The cheapest and most basic of all of them is the basic Kindle Touch. (It is also sometimes called just the original kindle.) This does not have internet acess (I think) except for the book store. It is completely touch screen. The other variation of this has no toch screen, but only three or so buttons. These are about $69.99. Hope this helps your decision =)

I think I've seen them in Best Buy and Office Max. You can also try Target/Walmart. You can call your local stores to see who sells it, then you can go over, ask all the questions you like, and spend some time testing it to see which one you feel most comfortable using.
