Deal: £170 Toshiba AT300 SE quad-core Android tablet

You can source a decent branded tablet via Argos' eBay outlet for a mere £170 (plus £3.95 delivery), one which is refurbished but comes with a 12-month warranty and 170 Nectar points. The Toshiba AT300SE is an Android tablet that runs on a quad-core system-on-chip, the Nvidia Tegra 3, clocked at 1.3GHz.

The rest of the specification sheet reads as follows: 1GB of RAM, a microSD card reader, a 10.1in display with a 1,280 x 800 pixel display, Wi-Fi, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, up to eight hours battery life, a rear 3-megapixel camera and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel one, 16GB onboard storage and a weight of only 600g.

There is an increasing number of quad-core tablets on the market offering similar functionalities (i.e quad-core SoC and a HD display). So if the size of the display is irrelevant to you, then it might be worth shopping around. You can get the Google Nexus 7 tablet for example for around £120 (although it lacks the rear camera and the expansion slots). You can read our review of the Toshiba AT300-101 here.
