Black Friday 2013 Tablet Buying Guide

Black Friday Tablets $150 and Under

Our Pick

Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7” (16GB)
$99.99 at Best Buy

Though there's still debate over whether a tablet should be a catchall device or more specific in its design, if you're looking for a tablet for $150 or less, you're probably not seeking a heavy-duty product to get work done. If entertainment consumption is your primary interest, our pick in this price range, the Kindle Fire HD 7", should suit you just fine.

Although you're stuck playing within Amazon's ecosystem, that's not necessarily a bad thing. Amazon still has the largest eBook selection compared to competitors Barnes & Noble (Nook) and Sony (Kobo). If you add in Amazon Prime, which features a ton of free TV, movies and other perks (at $80 a year), you'll be happy with it, especially considering that Best Buy has sliced $100 from the original price.

Honorable Mention

Acer Iconia 7.9" 16GB Android Tablet
$99.99 at Staples

At Staples, you'll be able to pick up a decently equipped Acer tablet for just under $100. Specs include 16GB of on-board memory (memory is expandable to 32GB), 7.9" XGA multi-touch IPS display, Bluetooth capability, front (0.3 MP) and rear (5 MP) facing cameras, and Android Jelly Bean. Thanks to an $80 Black Friday discount, this tablet is an affordable entry into the tablet world and a worthwhile option if you prefer the Android ecosystem over Amazon.
