The concept of the 'best tablets under $200 / £200' might sound a little contradictory at first glance. Can any tablet under $200 possibly be any good? After all, the top-specced tablets from the likes of Apple and Microsoft – and Wacom for drawing tablets – can easily cost over a grand. Well actually, you can get decent tablets for this price, as long as you're expectations are realistic.

Below, we've picked out the best tablets at under $200 for both general uses and for drawing, ranging from the cheap to the even cheaper. We've evaluated the tablets based on our own hands-on reviews and feedback from our network of contacts. We've considered the power and performance they offer for a budget price, the quality of the screen and any extra features (See how we test and review for more details of our process). The first five devices are tablets for general use, but below that we move on to the best tablets for drawing under $200
