Tablets have become steadily more affordable and more popular over the last few years and you can now purchase many different tablets for under $300.
Even better, many 10-inch screen tablets are now being sold for less than $300. These tablets are typically excellent for gaming or watching movies on the road, but finding the right one for you can be tricky because there are so many tablets to choose from.
Save some time by considering these seven 10 inch tablets first:
1. Asus Transformer Pad 10.1-Inch Tablet & Keyboard
The biggest advantage of this tablet is that you can essentially transform it into a laptop. Asus has become known for producing the best transforming tablets in the industry and this product is definitely one of the top tablets in its price range. With a 1200 x 800 screen resolution and Windows 8.1 this tablet is great for all kinds of things: office work, playing games and even watching HD movies.
You can purchase this tablet and keyboard combination for $299.00 or less if you manage to get it on sale.
2. Acer 10.1 Inch Switch Laptop

It also runs on Windows 8.1, providing access to many different office and productivity apps as well as a wide variety of games. Combined with a 1280 x 800 pixel screen resolution and HD display, this is one of the best all-around tablets you can purchase for less than $300.

3. Samsung Galaxy Tab S
This tablet features a beautiful 10.5 inch HD display screen and 3 gigs of RAM so you can watch HD videos, play games and use just about any Android-compatible application smoothly. It also comes with 16 GB of regular memory, a little bit higher than most models in the same price range.

4. Acer Iconia Tab 10
You might recognize Acer as a fairly well known laptop brand and their tablets are quickly gaining recognition too. This particular tablet features a 10.1 inch screen and runs on Windows 8.1, providing almost all the same functionality you would enjoy from an Acer laptop. If you’re looking for a tablet with office functionality as well as a large display, this is definitely one of your best options.
The only drawback of the Acer Iconia is that the display has a somewhat lower resolution than other tablets on this list. Still, this tablet is pretty great all around, and at roughly $210 it’s definitely worth considering.
5. Lenovo Tab A10
This tablet features a 10.1 inch HD screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800. It runs on Android, offering some office functionality and access to hundreds of apps and games. Quad core processing makes this tablet great for both gaming and watching HD video.
If you mainly want a tablet for gaming or watching movies on the go this is definitely one of the better choices available. You can find it on sale for anywhere between $240 and $299.99.
6. Amazon Kindle Fire HD10
The Kindle Fire HD10 is built to be an excellent entertainment tablet, perfect for reading ebooks and watching movies on. It features a 10.1 inch screen with a 1280 x 800 display resolution and space for a micro SD card so you can increase the memory by up to 128 GB. You’ll also get free unlimited storage in the Amazon cloud.
This tablet doesn’t really offer any office functionality but is one of the best entertainment tablets priced under $300. You can typically find the Kindle Fire HD10 on sale for $259.
7. Samsung Galaxy Tab A
All right, this tablet’s screen is only 9.7 inches, but it earns its place on this list with the same high quality other Samsung tablets are known for. It runs on Android, providing some office functionality and access to countless apps and games. You can also add a micro SD card to give the tablet up to 128 gigs of memory.
Unfortunately the screen resolution on this tablet isn’t very high, so if you want it exclusively for watching movies on the road you should probably consider another tablet on this list. If you’re still interested, you can purchase this tablet for $297.
