Lenovo IdeaTab S5000

Lenovo's S5000 carries a lighter load than any 7-inch tablet before it

Lenovo goes lighter than any slate before it with its latest 7-incher, the S5000. At 0.54 pound, the Android 4.2 tablet is lighter than even the iPad Mini and Nexus 7 (2013). Its other specs, however, don't exactly achieve high watermark status -- but it is fairly cheap. Lenovo says it'll cost €199 (roughly $260 or £170).

The S5000 features a 1,280x800-pixel resolution IPS screen with 360 candelas per square meter brightness. That's not as sharp as current high-end 7-inch screens from Google and Kobo, but unless you're completely accustomed to 300-plus ppi (pixel-per-inch) screens, you likely won't notice much difference.
