My daughter's ASUS Transformer was something like £130 for a nice little tablet with dockable keyboard included. If you bought the next model up with 4GB of ram and a bit more storage it was about £250.
    Yes that was definitely the case. I think it might be changing though now. I've seen a few better spec'd ones now but only a few no name Chinese brands. I think Microsoft are getting less and less bothered by Windows licensing earnings but there are also less and less manufactures chasing the bottom end of the market - certainly no decent ones anymore. I see OP is going with Android which makes sense but just a word of warning if anyone sees my posts about cheap windows tablets - just make sure its not Windows RT! Quite a few of those kicking about at the £80~£100 mark second hand and they are worthless (stuck on the old version of Edge with no better browser options and no effective support). A good example of this is Music magpie wanting £160 for a surface 2 - https://www.musicmagpie.co.uk/store/...8-9a5b1b2a9f61 - Only the pro are full windows in these early models so this is £160 overpriced.
