Asus Transformer Pad TF103C with keyboard bundle
With Asus' slickest user interface yet, included keyboard, and a competitive starting price, the small but chunky Transformer Pad TF103 is an attractively affordable tablet hybrid.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 ( 8-inch, black)
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 is a smooth-performing midrange slate, but it's overpriced compared to similar tablets.
ASUS VivoTab Note 8 M80TA
The 8-inch VivoTab 8 is a Windows tablet that doesn't particularly stand out in a crowded field, until you discover the Wacom stylus tucked inside its body.
Acer ICONIA W4-820-2882
The 8-inch Acer Iconia W4 has a few advantages that help it stand out from a crowd of similar devices, including great battery life and enough ports to support basic productivity. It's also much better -- and less expensive -- than last year's W3 model, so it earns bonus points for that.
Dell Venue 8 Pro
The Dell Venue 8 Pro comes close to being a great pocket-size mini-PC, but a misplaced button and missing accessories feel like unnecessary errors.
Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8
Though it feels well-built and has a handy kickstand, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet’s poor performance makes it hard to justify even at its low cost.
Asus MeMo Pad FHD 10 tablet
The Asus Memo Pad FHD 10 is a well-priced large tablet that doesn't compromise on useful extras.
Google Nexus 7 ( 2013, Jelly Bean)
Thanks to its stellar performance and affordable price, the Nexus 7 is the Android tablet to get.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 ( 10.1-inch, white)
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 is a sleekly designed tablet but, with more powerful and cheaper options available, it feels like more of the same, rather than an upgrade.
