Regular slate tablets are not for you. No sir/ma'am, you demand flexibility and utility from your electronics. Lenovo's Yoga line might be more accommodating for your needs, since it uses a unique chassis that combines a kickstand, an ergonomic handle, a massive battery pack, and a pair of stereo speakers into one bulbous side of the device. Today's Best Buy deal of the day is the 8-inch Yoga Tablet, on sale for $70 off.

That still makes the Yoga Tablet 8 $179.99, which is a bit of a tough sell for a device with a 1.2Ghz Mediatek processor, 1GB of RAM, and a pedestrian 1280x800 screen, putting it at about the same technical level as the original Nexus 7. Yes, you get a 5MP camera and MicroSD card slot and the aforesaid unique physical design, but those lackluster specs are going to start weighing it down when a bunch of applications are thrown in. It doesn't help that the tablet is still running Android 4.2.

Still, if you want a tablet that will literally stand up to the competition, the Yoga Tablet 8 looks like a decent choice. This is the most generous discount we've seen on this model so far, beating out Best Buy's previous one-day deal late last year by ten bucks. The retailer is offering free shipping, or you can opt for in-store pickup. Again, this is a "daily deal," so get moving if you want to take advantage of it.

    Sorry Lenovo but iPad Air is better.

    • shojus

      An iPad Air also starts at $499 for a 16gb configuration w/ no expandable storage, so I don't really think we are comparing this to an iPad Air as this is several hundreds cheaper.

      • Somedude

        You are right. But even at this price, I would not buy this one

      One other Android tablet on sale this week is from the site — TabletMaxx – which has the Pipo M7 Pro on sale for $179 – regularly $259 – and features a quad core processor, a full HD 1920×1200 Samsung brand screen display, a battery with 8+ hours use (6300 mAh); plus Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Google Play preinstalled. It also features, a MicroSD slot, HDMI and Bluetooth 4.0. You’d be pressed to find a much better deal on a device that matches most specs of the $350 LG- G Pad and Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 tablets.

        Yes but i am not a big fan of specs. I am fan off a well polish system, a smooth experience and smooth apps. Thank you for the recommendation my friend.

  • Cory Wilson

    Really look forward to what moto can do for these guys


    I have the Lenovo Yoga 12 laptop, and it's awesome! I haven't tested this tablet, but if it's half the awesomeness of the laptop, then go for it, people! :)

    • m477

      It's crap.

      • SSDROiD

        Well then, we disagree :)

        • m477

          I was talking about the tablet. It's sluggish with a terrible display. I know that most of the lenovo laptops are great.

          • SSDROiD

            Oh, hahaha. A simple misunderstanding! :)

  • JazzEspresso

    it is really bad guys...my friend got this one, after 3 weeks usage, it was become soo slow, he eventually returned it!!, also it is 1024 x 600 resolution, not 1280x800!!

    • nofearofimaginarymen


      1280x800 according to the manufacturer. I have never used it so I cannot comment on how the thing performs.

      According to best buy, it is 1024x600 but every other source is 1280x800. Probably a typo on Best buys part unless they happened to have a lower end model.

    • Hari Uday

      Uh huh... I own this tablet and it's totally 1280*800. At least stop making rumors....
