Google Nexus 7 ( 16GB, 2013)
Thanks to its stellar performance and affordable price, the Nexus 7 is the Android tablet to get.
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.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S ( 10.5-inch, white)
An exceptional screen and a long list of software goodies make the Galaxy Tab S Samsung's best tablet to date and our top Android choice for an entertainment slate.
Amazon Kindle Fire HD 6
New 6- and 7-inch Kindle Fire HDs hit a low-price milestone for Amazon tablets, while still maintaing a unique identity.
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 MeMo Pad 7 ( ME176C, black)
The new generation of the Asus Memo Pad 7 feels better made than its predecessor and packs in an Intel processor, all at a bargain price tag.
Acer Iconia A1-830
The Acer Iconia A1-830 is a sleek and simple tablet for basic use, but you need only spend $50 more to upgrade to a slate with faster performance and better features.
Acer Switch 10
The Acer Aspire Switch 10 is a budget hybrid that skips the more-common fold-back or button-clasp hinges and instead attaches its screen via a magnetic connection. It shares the same hardware limitations as other small hybrids, but can be easier to use.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 ( Jelly Bean)
It costs a bit more than we'd like, but the Galaxy Tab 3 is Samsung’s best non-Note tablet yet.
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.
