Back to school time is almost here, and the student on your list may find a tablet to be the perfect gadget to take back to the dorm. Tablets won't replace laptops or desktops, but they make a fine addition in the backpack to do things at a moment's notice. All of the tablets on this list are capable to do online work, read books and watch videos, among other things.
All of the tablets can be found online, often with big discounts off the MSRP. Most of them can also be scouted at big retailers such as Best Buy and Staples. The gallery shows the five tablets up close, and since using keyboards can extend the usefulness of them for students those are covered, too.
