Archos 5 Android Tablet, $245

If you're intrigued by fancy tablets like the Apple iPad but don't want to lay out $500 and up, you might want to give the Archos 5 Internet Tablet a try. Our reviewers weren't exactly estatic about the device; read our November 2009 review (updated in September 2010) for details. However, if all you want is a basic computing device that can let you read e-mail, browse the Web, and enjoy your videos and MP3s, it might be just the ticket.

When we reviewed the Archos 5 Internet Tablet, the 160GB model sold for a whopping $430--which might help to explain our reviewer's lukewarm response. Right now you can get that same model for only $245 at B&H.
