    Ok so I have £200 max to spend on it so I'm not expecting an ultimate flash one. I primarily want one to use for university - to write notes, download powerpoints/documents and be able to edit/highlight them. I'd love it to come with Microsoft Word but I understand that's probably not realistic for my price range. I think I might have a free download of it anyway (I got a free download for my laptop in the summer from the uni) so maybe a tablet that's able to have it on? Regardless, it needs some note writing/pdf download function.

    Any suggestions what tablet I should look at, or any particularly function I should look for when researching it?
    edit: I guess a keyboard would be helpful but I'm not bothered to be honest

    Does it have to be a Windows tablet? That Linx 10 linked above me is pretty decent, just the other day it was £30 from Staple after cashback once you trade in an old tablet, other than that its £80 instore I believe.

    But if you want to actually use say those stylus's, there are very few tablets which are that good. One of the best at it is the more expensive Samsung tablets. The Samsung Pro 10.1 occasionally comes down to about £200-£220 and has plenty of power.

    Might want a keyboard if you're going to be doing much writing on it!
