Cheap Tablet? ~$100

Hello,
I'm looking to get my dad a new tablet as his previous one broke a few weeks ago.
Any suggestions/deals for a tablet around $100?

The Samsung tablet (E lite) has very bad reviews. Can't upgrade past Android 4.4 either.

I bought this Acer Iconia One 7" for my kids for $90. The will go back to that price on BF.

Damn, I was looking at the E Lite...
You'd recommend the Acer over it? There's a doorcrasher deal at Staples for $77 for the acer (https://www.redflagdeals.com/flyers/the ... 17-100839/)
But I don't really want to deal with the crowds hahah. If there's nothing better i'll probably just line up as well

Have a further look at the E lite. Maybe things that bother me would be fine by you. Most stores are offering that one for the same price from what I've seen, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding it. I think Costco's regular price is $90, but I could be mistaken.

Thanks for posting the staples link. I hadn't seen that one. It's a bit of savings over the BB one that I bought so I may need to consider it, especially since I bought 2. Looking at the comparisons, the one from staples has a better screen. The one from BB has a better processor and battery life. Other than that, they look to be the same : https://www.acer.com/ac/en/CA/content/c ... .LEKAA.001

You could always buy online and avoid the lines. Amazon will likely have price drops on these tablets as well on Friday.

Edit: Just saw the link and ad you posted was from The Source and not Staples. Make sure you don't go line up at Staples that day...Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

A lot of LG Gpads will likely come into the market after BF with the Freedom and Fido promos. Last year I was able to get an LG Gpad 3 for $130 (I think).

Pretty great tablet so far.

Looking for a tablet to take on vacation so I can leave my laptop home. Will only use for emails, googling stuff to do and maybe storing some photos. Ideally cheap but not a total piece of crap.

Any suggestions?

I don't know how savvy your pops is with technology. I recently purchased the tab e lite for my folks. They just do some light surfing, email, watch a few videos and skype and it meets their needs. They're satisfied with it, and have had no complaints. I picked it up at Costco for about $90.

^^^Can anyone comment on the quality? Inflated regular price or decent for basics?
