    Default Best sub £200 tablet

    My mother is looking to buy a tablet, she was looking at the Lenovo Yoga but reviews suggest it's not brilliant.

    Anybody have any ideas on what's a decent tablet in that sort of price range?

    We have had a couple at work to play with - full windows 8.1 for sub £200 is a bargain. Obviously it has a couple of issues but if you wanted Full windows on a 8" you cant really get cheaper.

    They are end of life-ing them in the next month or so and will be releasing a new version soon (apparently keeping with a similar price model)

    I'd buy another nexus 7(2013).

    Does she want brand new? I'd look for a 2nd hand 32gig lte model if I was you.

    Or, I'd also stump for a Nexus.

    Failing that, the Tesco Hudl.

    I think you need to determine what size screen she would prefer first. And determine what she is going to use it for mainly !

    I thought about that but I think the conversation would end up getting nowhere, just the best combination of features/spec in the price range is I think the way to go.

    An iPad 2 is definitely achievable for [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    I've bought both my parents iPads and they love them to bits. Android tablets are for enthusiasts, not tech challenged parents.

    For a lot of people especially the elderly a bigger screen is very important. GTI has nailed it with the iPad choice for none tech Savvy older people. I also bought both my folks iPads and they love them as they are pretty foolproof to use. I think my Mum who is 80 would struggle with an Android tablet to be honest. Again you need to look at the needs and the ability of the User.
