What Is The Best Tablet For Your Budget? Via Acumor
Tablets remain hot. In fact, most computer experts predict that by 2015 tablet sales will overtake the combined sales of laptops and desktop PCs. That has led to a crowded tablet marketplace, with manufacturers flooding the shelves of retailers with tablets of all sizes and price points.
Deciding which tablet is right for you can be a challenge. Fortunately, the Christian Science Monitor recently ran a list of the best tablets for every size budget.
Hannspree 13.3-inch tablet
For the more budget-minded consumer, the Christian Science Monitor recommends the Hannspree 13.3-inch 16GB Android tablet. The paper calls this tablet a great laptop replacement for casual users. And its price of $199.99 is a solid bargain. This tablet is no weakling, either, with the Monitor reporting that it is powerful enough for both work and play.
Refurbished iPad Mini
If you don’t need a full-size iPad, the Christian Science Monitor recommends that you look for a refurbished iPad Mini. Refurbished iPads come with the standard one-year Apple warranty, which is good. The 32GB WiFi version of this tablet can be found from the Apple Store in a refurbished version for just $419. That price might seem steep, but for an iPad Mini, it’s quite affordable.
Microsoft Surface Pro 10.6-inch
The Microsoft Surface Pro might get some bad press, but the tablet is actually a good one for anyone who wants to use it for work. It’s also a solid choice for students who need it to complete homework assignments and reports. The Monitor reports that it’s possible to find a Surface Pro 10.6-inch 128GB Windows 8 tablet for $679 at the Microsoft Store.
