If e-readers are more your type, the Nook GlowLight is down to a rock-bottom $99.
If you're hunting for a sweet deal on the latest iPad Air 2, don't hold your breath. You will, however find a refurbished Apple iPad 2 on sale for $229 at GameStop. Though it doesn't have an HD Retina screen or a TouchID fingerprint sensor, the iPad 2 is still a great vessel for your favorite iOS apps in the Apple ecosystem.
Slated to go on sale for $99 with the additional bonus of a 16GB microSD card, the Toshiba Excite Go is one of the best budget deals this Black Friday. If you're looking for an inexpensive slate to load with movies or games for your kids, the underpar screen and modest performance isn't as much of a deal breaker.
Amazon's latest budget tablets, the Fire HD 6 and Fire HD 7, are on sale at a long list of retailers, including starring roles as doorbusters. The portable 6- and 7-inch tablets make great gifts and feature a user-friendly interface with lots of kid-oriented functions.
The LG G Pad 8.3 is a premium Android tablet that suffered from a high price-tag when it was first released. Now you have the chance to pick one up for as low as $199 at Sam's Club.
It's slim and lightweight, with smooth performance to match its sleek looks. Though it comes in a pure Android version, the model on sale features LG's Optimus 3.0 overlay.
Samsung has more tablets than the Duggars have children, so for brevity's sake, I condensed the long list of Galaxy Tabs on sale this holiday to include the best models and cheapest deals.
At the top of the high-end list is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, which boasts the most brilliant screen of any tablet. A 16GB model can be found at Sears, Staples or Best Buy for $399, and an upgrade to the 32GB version at Best Buy only costs $50 more, at $449.
Starting at a low $149, Best Buy is also offering the productivity-geared, multiwindow-capable Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4. A similar worker-bee-friendly alternative can be found in the Galaxy Note 8, priced a little higher, at $239 via Newegg.
Every member of the latest line of midrange Samsung tablets is on sale this Black Friday. The performance and builds of these models aren't anything to write home about, but anyone interested in a solid tablet for casual use should consider one -- especially at these cheap prices.
Last but not least, the 10-inch Galaxy Tab 4 is going for $249 and -- you guessed it -- it's a doorbuster at Toys R Us and Kmart. It will also go for the same price at RadioShack, Staples, Office Depot, Sam's Club and Sears.
Tablets aren't known for their audio quality, however the Lenovo A10 looms above the quiet crowd. In addition to front-facing speakers (which are more rare than you'd think) the 10-inch tablet features Dolby powered speakers and a matching app for fine-tuning to your listening pleasure. You can pick up the $199 Lenovo A10 from Lenovo's own online store.
The Memo Pad FHD 10 houses 32GB of internal memory -- twice what most tablets on this list offer -- and it comes with a proprietary folio keyboard case that would usually set you back $100. It's not exactly a cheap deal, but it's a good one for anyone interested in the complete package.
