"Many tablets come with 4G options, but today we’ll just be looking at the cheaper WiFi-only models, since 4G coverage can be expensive and most universities have WiFi across their entire campus.


"If you’re a newbie to the tablet world, don’t forget to check out our Tablet Buying Guide: Summer 2013 before you get started. Right now, we’ll be starting off with the most inexpensive tablet and working our way up the price ladder."
