Tis apparently the season to get great deals on older tablets. You can pick up an 8GB Nexus 7 for as little as $100, a Lenovo IdeaPad A1 for even less, and even the recently-launched Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 for nearly $200 off its list price.

There’s a catch — many of the best deals are for refurbished products. But still, it’s a good day for bargain-hunters to do some tablet shopping. And you have to activate a Total Defense Premium Internet Security package to get that Nexus 7 rebate.

CowBoom is also offering the best price I’ve ever seen on pre-owned Kindle Touch 3G eReaders.

Here are some of the day’s best deals.

  1. I gott the IdeaPad A1 recently and would recommend people stay away from it. I upgraded it to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich without problems, which also did away with the annoying Lenovo circle program launcher.

    However, trying to update the preinstalled Amazon Kindle app (so that some childrens’ books can be downloaded) failed.

    Just now, the A1 hard crashed when trying to sync the Kindle app with ebook purchases made on a PC. (I had to let the battery run down to restart) It had successfully been doing daily syncs up to now.

    Some apps, like EssentialPIM, won’t install at all, causing the A1 to continuously loop the boot screen, without completing the boot process, again requiring the battery to run down to restart.

    The A1 is an el cheapo Lenovo device, with a single core Mediatek CPU and heaven knows what other nonprime components. It hasn’t been sold for very long, and the cheap innards are probably the reason why.

  2. Whoo, $100 Nexus 7 8GB after rebate seems like a no-brainer, at-first. Take a closer look and you’ll see that it comes with a string attached: Total Defense Premium Internet Security Bundle. The terms say you must have an active subscription with Total Defense to claim the rebate. Does anyone have experience with this program?

    On the other hand, the Ideapad looks really good at that price. All instant savings and free shipping.
