HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Tablets are increasingly in the mix when it comes to necessary school supplies. Unfortunately, they can sometimes carry a hefty price tag.

If you’re looking for some more affordable tablet options, check out some suggestions below, organized by price.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (approx. $125) – Great if your child is mostly in need of an e-reader. Syncs with Amazon’s large textbook library.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (approx. $300) – A solid, well-rounded tablet. Runs programs simultaneously and includes a stylus – great for jotting down notes.

Apple iPad mini (approx. $400) – Good for students who are already fans of Apple, or connected with an iPhone. Boasts an easy-to-use interface and other tools.

Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (approx. $800) – A tablet with more significant computing power. Works as a laptop with a pop-out keyboard for note-taking. Folds up for easy portability.

    Um, those last three are NOT affordable in the realm of the college student budgetary guide. Please get your priorities straight when it comes to what you think a student can afford vs. what’s a popular buy.
