Linx brings the Surface design to cheaper tablets, starting at £200

Linx has been offering great value Windows tablets to the British public for a while now but its latest releases are taking things up a notch or two. Coming in both 10- and 12-inch form factors, its latest Windows 10, the 10V and 12V bring the Surface design to cheaper tablets.

You're not going to get hardware to rival the Surface 3 and Surface Pro really, but you do get that now iconic kickstand design with a detachable keyboard. Linx isn't the first to produce a 'Surface clone,' but offerings from the likes of Lenovo and ASUS are somewhat pricey. Especially compared to these from Linx.

Across the board you're looking at Intel Atom x5 processors, with the bottom end being a 10-inch 1280x800 resolution display, 32GB of storage and 2GB of RAM. Going up from there options will include 4GB of RAM, 1920 x 1200 12 inch displays and 64GB of storage. By no means the highest end stuff you'll find but the most expensive model tops out at £349.99, while the cheapest 10-inch model costs £199.99. You'll get full sized USB, microSD and HDMI out on all, though. So not lacking in connectivity.

For those attracted to the Surface design but don't want to pay the higher prices, these could offer an interesting solution. Linx tablets in the past have been pretty solid devices, if lacking in glamour. They're set to start shipping at various dates in October and November.
