    Not sure I'd trust that. Unless I'm missing it the brand isn't listed, which combined with the A13 chip means that it's probably a shoddy Chinese one. The specs in general also aren't close to good enough to justify the claimed 300 RRP. I'd guess it normally retails elsewhere for about what they're asking.

    Ok ive upped my budget to 75 - are there are decent 7 inchers (heh, heh) around at that price?

    Should i be loking for something higher than 800 by 600 or will that suffice?

    @ibenam At that price you're going to be making a major sacrifice in at least 1 area. In terms of resolution I would say you really want higher- 800 x 600 will look a bit blurry, but you might be hard pushed to find better for the price.

    Best all-round tablet I can find for that sort of price is probably this:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cambridge-Processor-performance-Capacitive-EARPHONES/dp/B0051GSRR6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1355998447&sr=8-2

    The specs look pretty solid on the whole, but the resolution is only 800 x 480. I can't say I've used it myself either, I'm just going by specs, price and amazon user rating.

    Or if you don't mind going pre-owned you could probably get a second hand Kindle Fire or something. It's still not a great tablet, and it's locked into the Amazon eco-system but it's a solid entry level device.

    I dont mind making a few sacrifices as it's only for the kids but do think a decent resolution is important.

    Was really avoiding the Kindle as I think Android market would be better for them.

    Ive seen a few on ebay which purport to be 1024 by 600, im guessing that would look less blurry albeit performance may suffer.

    Heads up lads - this 8" "bad boy" is apparently going for 49 on boxing day in all Tesco stores:

    Has anybody used the HP Stream 7? 99 direct from MS for the 'signature edition' (stock windows 8, zero bloatware). My launch model Nexus 7 (lollipop certainly didn't seem to do it any favours) is getting horribly long in the tooth now, and I'm thinking a full windows tablet for under 100 might be the way to go. Reviews seem generally positive, and it looks like it might be a nice bit of kit.
