Lenovo just launched a new wallet-friendly series of Android tablets. Here's a breakdown for each of them below:

The A1000 = $149.99 at Best Buy
  • 7-inch tablet with a 1024x600 screen
  • 1.2GHz MTK dual-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 16GB of storage
  • Android 4.1
  • A microSD Card Slot
The A3000 = $179.99 at Best Buy (This one is identical to the A1000 but offers a more powerful quad-core processor for your 20 bucks.)
  • 7-inch tablet with a 1024x600 screen
  • 1.2GHz MTK quad-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 16GB of storage
  • Android 4.2
  • A microSD Card Slot
The S6000 = $279.99 at Best Buy
  • 10.1-inch 1280x800 IPS display
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 1.2GHz MTK 8389/8125 quad-core processor
  • 32GB of storage
  • Android 4.2
  • A microSD Card Slot
Hmmm.... seems intriguing. The 10-inch device especially seems like a decent bargain if you are in the market for a tablet of that size. What do you guys think?

It's worth noting that the prices have fluctuated during the time of this article. Best Buy has all of these tablets at the listed prices above, but Amazon has them slightly different. Amazon has the A1000 ($151.20) and the A3000 ($183.20) a little bit more, but has the S6000 for only $249.99. That's a real bargain for a 10-inch tab.

We included quick links to the tablets above if you want to take advantage of these deals.

I've been spoiled by the display on the iPad and am afraid if the resolution is not at least 2560 x 1600 Nexus 10 quality, it won't be adequate[FONT=Roboto, arial, sans-serif].[/FONT]

Only 1GB?? I just don't get it. Everyone knows with only 1GB most systems will eventually bog down with apps running in the background. Don't get me wrong...if there is NO bloatware installed (yeah, right!), then 1GB is probably plenty for most users, but for the power-users even in that scenario it will suffer from lag.

Low priced tablets are not marketed to "power users". They are marketed to the 90% of customers who are not "power users". I would buy the A3000 at $200 if only the resolution were 1280x800.

I agree, 1GB is simply very low RAM capacity.

However, Lenovo is becoming more competitive over the last years and it is supplying great value for the price not only for tables, but also for smart phones.
