Laser MID786

TechLife Australia - - BARGAIN HUNTER -

EX­TREMELY AF­FORD­ABLE.

AVAIL­ABLE FOR JUST $79, the Laser MID786 makes even the most af­ford­able e-reader look ex­pen­sive. The lit­tle tablet mea­sures in at 7 inches, is 12mm thick and weighs 211 grams. It runs An­droid 6, with a quad-core All­winer A33 1.34GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of stor­age.

While the 1,024 x 600 screen isn’t nearly as nice for read­ing books, it can play back video. The Laser tablet it­self is some­what plas­ticy, but feels ro­bust enough to throw in a hand­bag.

It has a for­wards-fac­ing cam­era, Wi-Fi, Blue­tooth and mi­croSD card slot. The in­built au­dio is pred­i­ca­bly tinny, but it does have a 3.5mm head­phone jack as well. Of course, com­pared to an e-reader, the big dif­fer­ence is bat­tery life, and the MID786 will only last 7 hours or so be­tween charges.

For those who read a lot of books, the Laser MID786 isn’t the best choice, but con­sid­er­ing the very low price, it makes for a de­cent multi-use tablet.
