With the Asus ZenPad Z170C 7" Tablet you'll be able to browse the web and stay entertained comfortably and easily, on the move or while relaxing at home.

Smart processing

An Intel® Atom™ x3-C3200 Processor helps your ZenPad run smoothly so that daily computing stays fun.

Android 5.0 gives you a fantastic experience - its bold, colourful new design looks great and features layered windows for simple and intuitive menu navigation. Notifications for messages, emails and updates now appear over the top of the screen, so won't interrupt you browsing the web or watching a film unless you want them to.

If you have several Android devices, all your data and options automatically transfer between them, so you can move seamlessly between your tablet and smartphone and instantly pick up where you left off.

Other improvements include estimated battery life and charge times, plenty of new quick settings like Flashlight and screen cast, and Smart Lock which keeps the tablet unlocked while it's within a certain distance of a trusted device such as a smartwatch or PC.

A screen for easy computing

Use your apps, navigate through web pages and display photos with ease on a 7” IPS LED display. You'll always be able to find what you're looking for.

This 10-point multi-touch screen offers an intuitive user interface – combined with a 1024 x 600 resolution and comfortable 178° viewing angle, the ZenPad Z170C is the ideal blend of great visuals and practicality. Asus TruVivid technology delivers a better visual experience, with brighter, more vivid colours and details.

Good storage and battery life

The 16 GB internal memory allows you to store music, pictures and other essential items on your Asus ZenPad Z170C for easy access. The tablet's built-in battery offers up to nine hours of use from a full charge, so you can work and play for longer.

Great for photos and video chats

Use the 2 megapixel camera on your ZenPad Z170C to take photos and videos of special moments with family and friends – or unexpected things that are happening right in front of you.

A 0.3 megapixel web camera on the screen side of the tablet allows for clear web chats – carry the tablet around the house while you talk, or just prop it easily on your lap while chilling on the sofa.

Light and portable

Take the ZenPad anywhere without hassle. It's just 8.4 mm thick and weighs only 270 g, so it won't add much bulk to a bag or backpack. You'll look good using this tablet thanks to its sleek design and black finish.

Enjoy everyday computing more with an Asus ZenPad Z170C 7" Tablet.

I bought 2 of these, one for me, one for the daughter... Firstly, they are horrendously slow, could be because of all of the ASUS crap on there...... Got rid of what I could - still painfully slow.... The daughter found hers exactly the same...... My one after a couple of weeks wouldn't stop loop rebooting - so returned for a refund... The daughters is just sat gathering dust - her old mobile being much better than this... It may be "only" £59.99 but the fact it only has 1GB of ram means pretty much most apps will struggle and as tech time quickly passes by this will be obsolete very soon.... So my advice is to shop around and find something with more RAM as you'll get better quality of use and more life out of it.

I'm not sure it's just the ram that causes issues...
I got a couple of the Lenovo tab 7's from Argos for the kids when they were 49.99, and we've found them just fine. There ARE better out there, of course, but for 50 notes, they manage great, and with only 1024x600 resolution, 1gb isn't as limiting as some think.

1GB can be a very big problem these days. you'll find that just operating without any apps that most tablets / phones will be using around 0.5gb with their OS and background tasks.

If you dont mind a tablet / phone being slow then 1GB is fine but if your looking to use it in 'real time' then i wouldn't consider anything less than 2GB.

Pretty sure this is the model I have which is now just a basic comic reader due to the incredibly poor performance of the thing.
And it's not just the 1gb RAM - the Asus software is endless and unnecessary. No support from the community either so impossible to debloat. Battery is OK and it's well built, but in all honesty I wouldn't pay £30 for it. Avoid

Not sure what you mean by no community support as this has been rooted: http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/development/asus-zenpad-c-7-0-z170c-p01z-root-method-t3311752

You could then use titanium backup to freeze or force uninstall bloatware

CAN BE limiting is the key.
Don't buy a 50 quid tablet expecting 'performance'....
As I said, the 1gb tabs we got the kids are absolutely fine for the use they were intended for. iPlayer, kids games, Spotify, all fine. Can't speak for these obviously, it would appear they are more hindered, but buy according to requirements. If you need power, space and performance, don't spend 50 quid to get it.

Yeah I tried that method. It didn't work for me.

Good price for a very basic tablet and as said above DO NOT expect decent performance from this

I agree, I have the bigger brother Zenpad 8 inch with 2 GB ram and it's great, but 1gb ram just isn't enough for mainstream use.

There are better tablets out there in this price range.
