Whether you fancy a discount iPad, a cheap Fire HD or low-cost Galaxy Tab, you'll find today's best tablet deals neatly arranged below. All you need do is choose the one that suits your budget!

The best tablets are multi-skilled marvels. Whether you're after an entertainment hub, productivity powerhouse, portable music streamer or ebook reader, most tablets do all this and more.

They tend to be a lot more portable than laptops, too, making them more convenient to use around the home and when travelling. Prefer to clack away on physical keys? There's plenty of wireless keyboard accessories to choose from.

And with Black Friday on the way, deal hunters are spoilt for choice right now...
