Back to school: Best tablets

An inexpensive tablet can assist your studies, we round up the best available.

Heading back to school or university? Why not aid your studies with an inexpensive tablet?

If you can't afford an iPad, there are a range of tablets available that won't break the bank. Most of these are Android tablets and you can find them at retailers for far less than their original RRP: examples include the Motorola Xoom, the Acer Iconia A500 and the Toshiba Tablet AT100.

Acer Iconia Tab A200

Don't let the Acer Iconia Tab A200's budget price fool you. For less than it's $350 asking price you'll get an Android tablet that does what most other Android tablets will. The dull screen and relatively small hard drive are downsides, but considering the price tag, these are both faults we can live with.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
