Would this $35 Amazon Fire tablet be much better than my cheap generic Android

At first I thought no, because I'm not an Amazon Prime member. Then I found out that you could add Google Play with a

little effort.

 

I'm thinking the biggest difference is the processor.

 

My current generic tablet (big markdown at the time):

 

CPU Type ARM Cortex-A8 CPU Speed 1.2Ghz

Amazon Fire:

 

CPU & RAM Quad-Core 1.3 GHz with 1 GB of RAM

1. I am not a Prime member and do not intend to be.

 

2. My internet is a slow dsl. I can't really stream anything other than youtube videos.

 

3. My current chip is single core (as far as I can tell).

 

Essentially I'm wondering what the quad core would most improve? They both have 1G of memory.

 

Thanks

Well, it's now $50 again so it's not so important.
