A small, cheap tablet is not very hard to find. But too often, there are trade-offs to be made: shoddy construction, unimpressive hardware, or features left on the cutting-room floor. The $99 Toshiba Excite Go is a shining example of this: in a race to the bottom rife with casualties, Toshiba has skimped on the most significant feature of all: the screen.
The Excite Go is a sleek little tablet. At just 7-inches across with a weight of 12.5 ounces it’s easy to hold with one hand, though it’s a bit bulkier than the Nexus 7 (2013), which weighs just 10.23 ounces.
The Excite Go sports a 7" display with a screen resolution of 1024 x 600, or what was common on last year's budget tablets. It runs Android 4.4 on an exceedingly powerful 1.3GHz quad core Intel BayTrail chip with 871MB RAM, 4GB of accessible storage, a weak camera, and a minimum of ports and card slots.
