Deal: £179 Archos 101XS Gen 10 tablet

It doesn't have the allure of the Apple iPad tablet but then, it doesn't cost as much. The Archos 101XS Gen 10 tablet is destined to those who want something good looking without necessarily breaking the bank or punching a hole in your pocket. Tesco is selling it for £179 with a £20 discount code (TDX-HF4X) that expires on Sunday plus 179 Clubcard points and free delivery.

The device comes with a 10.1in display that can show 1,280 x 800 pixels. There's a dual-core system-on-chip from TI, 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, HDMI, a quad-core Mali 400MP GPU, front and rear cameras, a six-hour battery life and an 8mm thick chassis that Archos says "binds [the] fibre casing to a strong metal frame".

Optionally, you can purchase a cover that attaches itself magnetically to the device and doubles as an ultrathin keyboard. The Coverboard, as it is known comes with a kickstand that converts the Archos 101XS into a rather enticing ultraportable device.
