At A Glance

The IdeaPad K1 makes a strong case for itself with its usability enhancements and snappy design. The inaccessibility of the microSD card slot, the poor speakers, and the tablet's relative heft are all drawbacks, but may be minor inconveniences given the value you get with its useful preloaded apps and 32GB of storage for $500.
