    I am in need of a low cost tablet around $100. I mainly want to use it to show stuff to some old people. They can't see / hear my cell phone too well and it's a pain to have to get them out of the chair to come into my bedroom to see something.

    Here's my requirements for something and maybe you can recommend a tablet?

    - Is it really a big difference to get Android 4.2 as opposed to 4.1? I heard 4.2 runs a lot smoother. I'm not sure about any features it has. So, I'm looking at 4.1 at least, unless 4.2 is really that much better.

    - At least 7" screen

    - My cell phone has 1GB memory and a dual core 1.2Ghz processor and I'm happy with it's performance, so I think this tablet should have that or better.

    - Obviously it needs WiFi built in.

    - Need to mainly surf web, YouTube, etc, but will also do some games.

    - Need to be able to install Google Play store if it doesn't already have it.

    - I prefer something I could go pick up in store, but if the deal good from a reputable place online I'll buy there.

    Since the new Nexus 7 has just come out, you can be sure that the outgoing model will become much cheaper--my guess is that the 16 GB model will drop to around $150 (new, not refurbished). The Nexus 7 is still the best value out there, in my opinion. Alternatively, you could consider the Asus MeMO Pad 7", which is like a cheaper, slower Nexus 7 with a somewhat lower quality screen. But for your purposes, it might fit the bill. It's currently $99 at TigerDirect.com:

    ASUS MeMO Pad Tablet - Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, VIA WM8950 1.0GHz, 1GB DDR3, 16GB Flash Storage, 7 TouchScreen, Webcam, Gray (ME172V-A1-GR) at TigerDirect.com

    That's not bad. Already has Google Play. I think I'm gonna go for it.

    I found this on Asus website:

    Is that Jellybean 4.1 or 4.2 you think? To me that appears it's 4.2

    It looks like it's still 4.1. Asus is usually pretty good about updates, so it has a decent chance of getting 4.2, maybe even 4.3.

    Well, if you want a good one you should really have a bigger budget.
    I got a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, awesome thing. But... it costs something around 500 dollars.
    You should not expect a great device for something around 100 dollars
    Don't be mad at me, just a GREAT tip.

    It's hard to get such tab. Why don't you ebay'd for used ones? I'd recommend to get a new HP Slate 7" but it costs around $200; delivers solid performance. Have a look at more options that are acclaimed as best tablets by users and experts.
