As far as internals go, try to get at least 2GB of RAM on any non-budget slate (and most budget ones, to be honest). At least 32GB of storage should be enough to keep you comfortable, but if your device supports microSD cards, 16GB isn’t unmanageable. (For what it’s worth, the iPad’s lack of this support is likely its biggest weakness.) Processing power and battery life are hard to judge on a general basis, so again, look for feedback for a given device to get a general idea. The newer your Apple A(X), Qualcomm Snapdragon, Nvidia Tegra, or Samsung Exynos chip is, the better it’ll usually perform. Most devices with MediaTek processors have relatively low power. As far as other ports go, it’s hard to say anything is truly essential, but having a few USB, microUSB, or microHDMI slots rarely hurts. Same with supporting 802.11ac WiFi, or Bluetooth 4.0 or higher. You can pad some slates with 4G connectivity as well, but the monthly fees are probably only worth it if you really plan on carrying your device all the time.

Nobody needs a tablet. The best of them get close to blending the productivity of a laptop with the portability of a smartphone, but unless you splurge on something like a Surface Pro, they usually end up being weird approximations of the two. If you want to get work done, you’re usually better off with a laptop. If you want to read things on the go, you’re usually better off with a smartphone. (Or at least a big smartphone.)Instead, most tablets are still best for luxury. They're something for your in-between time, when you’re sitting around and you want a more convenient way of throwing on a Netflix stream, opening up an e-book, or playing a game of Plants vs. Zombies. They’re simpler to start up than laptops, and fitted with bigger screens than smartphones. They don’t replace the two, but they can be convenient sidekicks to both.Still, because a tablet isn’t essential to most people’s lives, it’s totally understandable if you don’t want to overpay for one. Luckily, you don’t have to. Although the highest-quality iPad Airs and Galaxy Tabs cost $400 or more, there are still a handful of worthwhile options in the $200 range. So, per usual, we scoured the web and did some hands-on testing to find them. (With one minor yet worthwhile exception, which we'll explain below.) We also gave them our usual BI Rating.

In doing so, we looked for the obvious. You won’t find strong enough performance to get a ton of work done, but in this range, you’re looking for a media machine anyway. The build doesn’t have to be made of high-end metals, but it should feel comfortable and well put-together. You want enough storage space, along with software that, at the very least, doesn’t get between you and your stuff. And of course, you want a good screen — colorful, bright, and, ideally, sharp. With few exceptions, that screen will be around 7 or 8 inches. With all that out of the way, here are our favorite affordable tablets you can buy today.Update (2/11/16): We've completed our first major refresh of this guide. The Nvidia Shield Tablet K1 is our new top pick among budget Android tablets, while the Amazon Fire gets a mention as an ultra-cheap option. We've also updated our Apple iPad mini 2 entry to further explain why it's been included here.First, we’re going to cheat a bit. If you can pony up an extra $70 to get Apple’s entry-level iPad, it’s the only almost-budget slate that's worth the plunge. The iPad mini 2 is technically the weakest of Apple’s current crop of tablets, but two years into its existence it’s held up well.

Its metal-and-glass build is still refined, tightly constructed, and pleasant-feeling in the hand. Its 7.9-inch, 2048x1536 IPS display isn’t as vivid or deep as the world-beating (among non-OLED options) panels of the newer iPad mini 4 or iPad Air 2 — mostly because of its lower maximum color gamut — but it’s still impressively sharp, and it’s still miles more fine-tuned than the vast majority of tablets in the budget range. Compared to those slates, it still comes off like a notably higher-end product. The main reason we’re breaking our $200 guideline, though, is because the mini 2 runs iOS 9. As we’ve said before, Apple’s mobile OS is far and away the best operating system for tablets. It’s constantly easy to navigate, it doesn’t force the risk of delayed updates, and it recently added split-screen support, giving the mini 2 a measure of multitasking ability in the process.Most importantly, it’s still something of the default among app developers — if a major app (or game) launches or makes a major update, you’re almost guaranteed to see it as soon as it hits, if at all, on an iPad. Android has closed the gap in terms of app quantity over the years, but it still presents that risk, especially when it comes to new games.

iOS also has decidedly more apps that are optimized for larger displays. Explore Android far enough and you’ll still see a few too many apps that are either awkwardly laid out or presented like they’re on a blown-up smartphone. That sort of annoyance is rare here.The only major downsides are that paid apps tend to cost a dollar or two more, and that Apple’s first-party apps are routinely less inviting their counterparts from Google, Microsoft, and the like. Otherwise, we’d say the added convenience is worth a premium. All of this means that, display discrepancy aside, the iPad mini 2 isn’t that far off from the iPad mini 4. The primary concern is that its specs are aging. But while its two-year old A7 chip and 1GB of RAM will never be as robust as Apple’s latest hardware, iOS is still light enough for them to get you through a YouTube binging session or most modern games without much issue. For the general entertainment purposes a small tablet is meant for, it’s fine. Likewise, the mini 2’s battery can’t power up iOS 9 for as long as its successors, but the 8 or so hours of juice it gets per charge is passable.

When it comes down to it, the iPad’s position atop the tablet food chain is deserved. Whichever one you pick, you get the most complete user experience, with an excellent display, in a design that looks and feels great. You don’t have to deal with as many compromises.For now, all of that still applies to the iPad mini 2, even if it is getting a bit long in the tooth. Now that its base model — which includes 16GB of unfortunately non-upgradeable storage — has dropped from $400 to $270, it’s the only Apple device in existence that could reasonably be considered a bargain. Nowadays, you can often find it for less than that.Yes, it’s a little bit pricier than the options below, but the difference in general quality, especially with regard to how better-adjusted iOS is on tablets compared to Android or Windows, is drastic enough to make it worth recommending upfront. If you absolutely cannot go above $200, however, the Nvidia Shield Tablet K1 is only budget Android tablet that can compete with — and, in many ways, best — the mini 2’s convenience. In fact, in terms of pure value, it’s the best buy you can make on any Android tablet today.

Much of that is because of how powerful this thing is. It runs on the same Nvidia Tegra K1 SoC and 2GB of RAM as its predecessor — which was also named the Shield, sold for $300, and was recalled last summer over fears of faulty batteries — and that makes it significantly more capable than any other sub-$200 tablet we’ve tested. It’s competing with the iPad Air 2s and Samsung Galaxy Tab S2s of the world more than anything else. The various benchmark tests we ran in our testing only furthered that idea. This is important, not just because it gives you a strong and speedy slate today, but because it’ll give you something decent in the years to come. That second GB of RAM is a big leg up. The Shield is particularly robust when it comes to graphics performance, which makes sense given how much focus it puts on gaming. Every game we tested was nothing but smooth, but beyond that, Nvidia’s loaded up the device with 3 free months of its (surprisingly fluid) GeForce Now cloud gaming service, the ability to stream your own (compatible) PC games straight to the tablet, and a handful of exclusive (relative to other slates) PC game ports. There’s also a handy mini-HDMI slot, which lets the Shield hook up to a TV and act as a makeshift console.

You need to pay another $60 for Nvidia’s (solid) Shield controller to get anything out of this, and GeForce Now’s limited selection makes it an iffy buy, but if you’re into gaming, these are all nice bonuses.Even if you’re not, though, the Shield gets very little wrong. Its 8-inch 1920x1200 display is sharp, bright, and rich for the money. It also uses a 16:10 ratio, which is a little more spacious than the usual 16:9 without making the device unwieldy. It’s not the thinnest or flashiest slate around, but its soft, grippy build is practical, and its front-facing speakers work well. (Though the overly recessed power button is a pain.) The 8-9 hours of battery life (with minimal gaming) is fine. It also supports up to 128GB microSD cards, which is good, since the 16GB of included space is too little for a gaming machine. And again, it’s fast.Given the price tag, the only real downside here is in the software. Nvidia’s done well to keep a near-stock version of Android 5.1.1 — with an Android 6.0 update available, though you might want to hold off on that for now — but, as mentioned above, Android itself lags behind iOS when it comes to tablet app support and multitasking functionality. The very idea of an “Android gaming tablet” is somewhat self-defeating; since so many games arrive first (or at all) on iOS, most people interested in gaming on the go are still better off with an iPad.

Nevertheless, Android is familiar for many, and Nvidia’s extra features can be fun for PC gaming enthusiasts. You’re buying the Shield for how rock solid it is as a tablet, though — this mix of power, display quality, and versatility just isn’t available on any other cheap slate.We’ve highlighted it before, but if you’re willing to invest in world of Amazon, the Fire HD 8 is a nifty little treat. Neither its 1280x800 display, nor its all-plastic design, nor its middle-of-the-road processor is going to wow you, but for a $150 slate it’s all competent and adequate. If you aren’t downloading something or playing a heavier-duty game, it runs smoothly enough to watch a video or browse the web. Its speakers are excellent, and it supports a microSD card. (Which is good, because this model only has 8GB of room by default.) It gets a decent 8 or so hours of battery life. And while its plastic coat will never feel “premium,” it is smooth, and it comes in a handful of lively colors.The best and worst thing about the Fire HD 8 is its interface. The newest version of Amazon’s Fire OS is a stark improvement over previous iterations, with a cleaner look and a homescreen that more closely resembles traditional Android. It doesn’t have the same tidy app drawer, but it’s simple enough to get around. It also features an extensive set of parental controls.

As you’d expect, Amazon’s OS is tightly wound with Amazon’s ecosystem of services. There’s dedicated tabs for your books (so long as they’re with Kindle), video (with Prime Video), music (with Prime Music), shopping (with, um, Amazon), and so on.If you’re an active Prime member, this is super convenient. Everything is presented to you on a platter; you can get to all your media with ease, and the Fire HD will serve up smart recommendations for things you might want to check out in the future. You get free unlimited cloud storage for all that Amazon content, and the OS makes it easy to stash Prime media for offline viewing. Other first-party services like Freetime (for kid-friendly content) and Mayday screen sharing (for fast customer support) have their uses as well.If you aren’t a Prime diehard, though, the fact that the whole UI pushes you toward giving Amazon money will get tiresome. Fire OS isn’t exactly helped by Amazon’s app store, either — it has most of the essentials, but it isn’t as deep or dependable as those on iOS or stock Android. Notably, there’s no Google support, which means there’s no Gmail, YouTube, or Google Play Music. On the plus side, initiatives like “Amazon Underground” get you dozens of games for cheap.
