Lenovo has entered several mobile tablets into the tablet fray and while the IdeaPad Tablet K1, and ThinkPad Tablet are great options, the new Lenovo IdeaPad A1 is very arguably the best budget tablet money can buy.


As a budget tablet, one of the most impressive features of the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 is its price. The average price for a modern tablet ranges from $499 to $999 dollars and with prices as high as $1,000, there’s no wonder why lots of consumers are on the hunt for a great budget tablet. Unlike normal tablets, the Lenovo IdeaPad A1’s price is very impressive, and while you’ll be able to find great budget tablets at under $300, the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 costs less than $200 at only $199 bucks.

Vibrant 7 Inch Display

One of the first visually noticeable features of the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 tablet that is bound to grab your attention is its vibrant 7 inch touchscreen display. The Lenovo IdeaPad A1’s 7 inch display is ideal for watching movies, playing games, reading eBooks, running apps, browsing the web and more. While larger 10+ inch tablets offer more screen real estate, the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 tablet’s screen is easier to hold, store, and take with you while you’re on the go.

Decent Hardware

While it’s great to have a budget tablet, most budget tablets fail horribly in the hardware department, but the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 actually boasts quite a few admirable hardware features. The Lenovo IdeaPad A1 tablet features a single-core Cortex A8 processor, 512MB of RAM, a 3 Megapixel rear-camera and VGA quality front facing camera, and can hold up to 32GB of storage space.

Full Android 2.3 Gingerbread Support

Hardware is very important for virtually any electronic gadget, but when it comes to tablets, the battle is usually won on the software front. The Lenovo IdeaPad A1 runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but unlike other budget tablets that boast Android 2.3 Gingerbread support, the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 isn’t saddled and has full access to the Android Market and over 250,000 apps.

Great Build and Form Factor

You usually get what you pay for when it comes to budget gadgets – and one of the first things to go with budget is form factor and build quality. The Lenovo IdeaPad A1 is built for durability, is aesthetically appealing, and feels as though it cost a lot more than $199 to own.
