We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget question is coming to us from Pavel, who seems to be primed and ready to splurge on a bargain-bin Android tablet during the impending Black Friday rush. If you're looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.
"I've been looking into getting myself a tablet, but being a high school student, I don't have the money to go buy an iPad. I was wondering if there were any good Android tablets under $200. If there were any expectations, it would be a 7- or 10-inch screen and that the OS doesn't lag from basic tasks, because I've seen many of these tablets lag on the app drawer. Peace and love."
Here's our advice: "good luck." Every sub-$200 Android tablet that we've touched lags somewhat, but it's definitely possible to find some units that are more snappy than others. You've got a number of low-rate options if you're cool with fighting the Black Friday crowds, but otherwise, have a listen at the readers below in comments. Keep things helpful, alright folks?
