They're good for the money...
It'll do web / video consumption, Office computing and light gaming (store apps mainly although I have had Burnout Paradise running on a similar tablet at acceptable frame rates).
For high end gaming, Media Server duties or video editing, I'd look elsewhere - the CPU, GPU and RAM won't be up to those tasks.

Probably better getting an Android tablet in that case, would be easier for them to use and probably much better with the apps
Personally I'd be looking for 2gb of RAM. There are plenty of used Windows tablets doing the rounds on ebay - I picked up an 8" unit last week for £36 and it's in mint condition and works really well so far.

But if you just want it to browse the net then this should be fine. These users will be fine with 1gb of ram and the odd slow down, but for power users it's too limiting. Horses for courses but heat from me

This is a budget tablet thread.
We understand that something 4-5 times this price will likely be better.

How about posting your first deal for a similarly priced iPad.
Mmm, tempting.

I've been after a 10+ tablet simply to read comics on and nothing else. Seems fairly decent for this.

I replied with his particular use case in mind being children for which an iPad is much better even if more expensive as it's a lot easier. Why waste money on something the children aren't going to be able to be productive on. This would be my recommendation m.ebay.co.uk/itm…RCH

With respect, that is a very silly comment. iPads cost 4 times as much and to be candid they are not much better (we have two iPads).

And will last 4 times as long with 4 times nicer screen and be 4 times more usable for a child.

And its 1000000 times more limited.

Surely it goes without saying the quality of an item costing 5x as much is going to be better?.

A budget Android tablet would have made a better suggestion but a Windows tablet will suit some children very well indeed.
It works with Flash websites, it can run "proper" (x86) software and it readys them with a familiarity of a proper OS for when they will want / need a laptop.
Don't underestimate how quickly kids pick up technology - it's us foagies that resist change
In the 1st photo Mila Kunis is CAKED in make-up, yuk! But I`d still sh*g her (given the chance) X)
I was considering getting one of these tablets last week @ £50, have ordered one today with the extra 15% off just to see how it handles Xbox one streaming

I've got a Linx 8 and it didn't fare so well when I tried it but when I stated this last time on here, someone else with a Linx 8 said the opposite.
It might come down network setup - best of luck

Well, from personal experience I would not agree with any of those claims. Some people think it is wort paying four times as much for a sexy badge, others are happier to get much the same usability for a quarter of the cost (less when one considers the cost of proprietary peripherals and repairs).
Don't get upset about this issue, no one one has been disrespectful to you, they have just pointed out that an iPad is very poor value in this market.

This is a pretty good point. Whilst we have a couple of iPads, they will not be replaced when they expire, instead we will use the Windows 10 tablets we have acquired in the meantime. There is an educational advantage for my son (aged 11) in having the same interface as his laptop, desktop and the computers at school, which think is really important.

Whilst I respect your opinion I do believe the iPad would be better suited to a child. Indeed the children of the next generation are going to wonder why we go through the trouble of desktop operating systems when iPad is so much better. IOS is the future, Windows and osx are the past

​a locked platform is the future
I think for kiddies (thinking of my six year-old niece particularly) the Hudl 2 or similar is the way to go.

But - I think we underestimate how quickly children pick things up - some children will be able to use Windows desktop (the App Store is rubbish) - especially if they're used to PCs. My niece can navigate Android perfectly well, she either plays games or watches continuous Minecraft videos on Youtube

Why does every tablet, phone & console thread turn into a bloody fanboy soapbox?
All formats have their merits, you make a decision based on your requirements and your budget - you don't have to justify your choices by slagging off the opposition
