What Are the Lightest Tablet PCs?

Last updated: July 2023

It’s going to make your tablet owning experience much more pleasant if you choose a nice, light one that feels more like holding a piece of paper than a dumbbell. 

Tablets are great for half an hour, then they start to feel heavy. After an hour, your shoulder starts to complain. After four hours your entire arm literally pops out of its socket and plops to the floor.

So for most people, weight is a factor they should REALLY take into account before buying a tablet. It can make all the difference between a good tablet buy and a tablet goodbye.

All the tablets in this table weigh less than 1 pound.
