Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 – $200, was $230

You’ll need to buy a keyboard cover to enjoy its full potential, though, but you can still maximize its capabilities with the included Bluetooth S Pen. This stylus magnetically attaches at the back of the tablet for storage and charging and lets you do a variety of things — from pausing and skipping at a press of a button to taking notes, signing documents, and doodling.
Complementing its performance and versatility is a stunning AMOLED screen. It packs a 2,560 x 1,600-pixel resolution that makes everything appear crisp and maintains a perfectly readable interface even in direct sunlight.
