Not much has changed on our list since last month, but we do have one notable addition to the list, the Galaxy Tab S3. Samsung had introduced their new tablet, and it definitely belongs on this list. Sadly, not much else happened, we did not really see any other notable launches when it comes to tablets and 2-in-1s, but that doesn't mean that we don't have some rather compelling suggestions for you. That being said, let's dive in, shall we.

10. NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1

The NVIDIA Shield Tablet K1 was introduced way back in November 2015, but considering we didn't really see that many great tablet and 2-in-1 offerings since then, this tablet still made the list. The NVIDIA Shield Tablet K1 is still a compelling offering if you're looking for an affordable tablet, as it's currently priced at only $199, and can be purchased through Amazon. You're getting an 8-inch display here, 2GB of RAM and the tablet already got the Android 7.0 Nougat update.
