In just a few short years, tablets have changed the way millions entertain themselves. Free time has been forever changed by those fun-sized computers, making it easier than ever to check out television shows, movies, ebooks, and games from the comfort of the couch. But, that’s not to say all tablets are created equally – some are multimedia powerhouses made for the coffee table, while others are ready to go wherever you go on a moment’s notice. And many now allow you to enjoy all the features and programs available on a traditional laptop – from Excel to Powerpoint and more. Of course, it always helps when they’re powered by Intel processors, guaranteeing long battery life without sacrificing the processing power you’ll need for the cornucopia of entertainment you’ll be enjoying.
Dell Venue 7 – For Those Always On the Go
If you need your tablet to be a constant companion, why not get one small enough to fit into some pockets? Public transit commuters and jetsetters alike will love the Dell Venue 7. It’s tiny, but it packs more than enough punch to handle high-quality gaming and blockbuster movies for anyone on the bus to work or flying off to their next destination, thanks to a dual-core 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor. The $150 price tag is looking awfully nice, too.
Lenovo Miix 2 – For the Whole Family
Need a tablet that the whole family can share? Everyone will be pleased with the Miix 2. With a powerful Intel processor and a display that shines, the Miix 2 will suit everyone’s needs – including privacy. Each family member can carve out their own little niche on the Miix 2, with separate profiles that can be accessed using facial recognition software. A brand new 1.8 GHz Intel Atom 3700 series processor doesn’t hurt, either. This 8’’ Windows 8 tablet is modestly priced at $300.
The HP Omni10 is built for more than just entertainment. With a cutting-edge 2.39 GHz Intel Atom 3700 series processor, a stunning Full HD display, and all-day battery life, this tablet is made for people who need to get stuff done on the go. The Omni10 is the embodiment of the work hard, play hard mantra – for the businessman or woman who doesn’t need the extra weight of a laptop weighing them down, this $400 Windows 8.1 tablet is hard to top.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 – For Entertainment Lovers
Know someone who can’t rest until they’ve watched an entire season of a TV show straight through? They need a Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 – a $360 10’’ tablet that makes for comfortable viewing on the couch or bed while still having a big enough screen to properly enjoy all the action. It’s lightweight, too – even after three, maybe even four episodes, their arms still won’t be that tired from holding it. That tiny frame houses a powerful 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor and also includes a year of Boingo wireless access.
Acer Iconia W4 – For the Chatterbox
Mobile tech has made it possible to communicate with anyone from any place, at any time. And, some of us take full advantage of that fact. The Iconia W4 is perfect for them – at home, a keyboard stand makes typing those late night emails a breeze, while a top-notch anti-glare display allows for instant messaging in broad daylight – no squinting required. Either way, there will be no concerns about performance – not with an exceptionally powerful quad-core 1.3 GHz Intel Atom 3700 series processor. And, at $300, you won’t be breaking the bank, either.
