These days, a tablet isn’t a status accessory, it’s practically an essential. Whether you need to get your kids a tablet for their coursework or need one for work or as a laptop replacement, there is truly an option for everyone. Since we know that tablets can be pricey, these budget-friendly alternatives should be on your shortlist.

This tablet has a fast 1.3 gigahertz quad-core processor and offers up to seven hours of activity on a single battery charge. It also features a front and rear-facing camera, dual-band Wi-Fi and offers hands-free capability with Alexa.

We like that this tablet is available in black and pink and comes with key Google apps pre-installed. You’ll also get a 1024 by 600 IPS display and auto-adjusting screen light, meaning it’s easy on the eyes. This choice also provides 8 hours of battery life for mixed use.

With 13 hours of runtime between charges, this tablet is perfect for long trips. Users can expand the storage by up to 512GB thanks to the added micro SD card slot. With room for everything, this slim, comfortable tablet is great for those seeking great screen visibility while on the go.

We like that this tablet comes with 20 replacement nibs so you never get sidelined. A great gift for the budding graphic designer, this tablet allows 8,192 levels of pen pressure sensitivity, which is perfect for artists.
