Lenovo IdeaPad K1 tablet PC with keyboard for less than £180

At £180, Ebuyer has the best deal for the IdeaPad K1 tablet PC, which Lenovo is clearing out. Also known as the M715MUK, the nifty little device comes with a free keyboard docking station.

Although some will argue that the Google Nexus 7 is probably a better bet at £159 with a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 system-on-chip and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 offers significantly more bang per buck.

Other than the bundled keyboard docking station, there are more than 30 popular Android apps thrown in for free (some of them, like Documents to Go, are apps that have been paid for).

The tablet is a bog standard Android tablet based on the ubiquitous dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC clocked at 1GHz. There’s 1GB of RAM, 32GB onboard storage, Android 3.1 Honeycomb, a 10.1in 1,280 x 800 display, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a microSD card slot, a mini HDMi connector, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and a 5-megapixel rear one.

Lenovo claims that the tablet will stay on for up to 10 hours and, although it is thicker (13mm) and heavier (750g) than the competition, it remains one of the best value for money tablets on the market.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
