Every once in a while, a majorly discounted Android tablet will make its way onto our pages. One of those instances was the Lenovo IdeaPad A1, and it's been talked about here twice. One time was obviously for the announcement; the other, though, was for an unfortunate raise in price

This time marks another raise in price, although this time brings some good news: the tablet is back in stock. A few days after the previous raise, the tablet went out of stock due to demand. But now, you can get one for yourself for a mere $250. 

Even with the price raise, it's still a great deal. There's a 1GHz TI OMAP processor in there, as well as 512MB of RAM, and a 7-inch 1024 x 600 display. All of those specs come together to run Android 2.3. The A1 even has a dedicated GPS, along with WiFi and Bluetooth. 

$250 gets you quite a bit for the IdeaPad A1, but if you're more concered about the ecosystem that you'll be getting yourself into when buying a tablet, you might want to look at the Amazon Kindle Fire; you'll be getting all of Amazon's streaming media services natively there.
