The Lenovo A10's offerings are simple, but its smooth performance and solid speakers make it a compelling budget option.
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 W4-820-2466
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.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro ( 8.4-inch)
The premium specs and high-end feel of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 make it well worth the high price.
Asus Transformer Pad TF701T
Despite its bulky design, the Asus Transformer Pad TF701T is one of the best 10-inch Android tablet values available, but it's worth your time to also look closely at its competition.
Asus Transformer Book T100
The Asus Transformer Book T100 revives the Netbook value proposition (and Netbook usability issues) in a budget-price 10-inch laptop that doubles as a tablet. You won’t love it, but for sheer bang for the buck, it’s hard to beat.
Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9
With everything that was great about the HDX 7 and more, the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 isn't just a great value, it sets the standard for a media consumption tablet.
LG G Pad 8.3
With its speedy and reliable performance, the LG G Pad 8.3 is a solid small-sized tablet, but it can't outpace the smoother, less expensive Google Nexus 7.
Google Nexus 7 ( Jelly Bean)
Thanks to its stellar performance and affordable price, the Nexus 7 is the Android tablet to get.
Acer Iconia W3 ( 64GB)
The smaller 8-inch Windows 8 tablet is a form worth exploring, and the Acer Iconia W3 can be fun to use, but it's also buggy and held back by shortcuts and lackluster features.
