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:
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.
