If you are getting a tablet rental, you are probably doing so because you need a device which is compact, easy to use, and lightweight. There are a whole lot of tablets out on the market, and depending on whether or not you will need a specific operating system for your event, there may be a whole lot of tablets for you to choose from. One way to narrow down your search for the perfect tablet rental is by searching through tablets by weight. Since having a tablet which weighs five pounds isn’t very practical in most occasions, this article is dedicated to showing you some of the lightest tablets out on the market – or specifically tablets which all weigh under one pound.
Sony Xperia Z4
The Sony Xperia Z4 is large but light, weighing less than a pound in both WiFi only and WiFi + cellular data variants. The Xperia has the largest display size in this article, coming in at 10.1 inches. If you are interested in this device, keep in mind that it runs on Android so if you have software which requires iOS, consider the next tablet on the list.
iPad Mini 4
While Apple’s new iPad Pro is quite powerful, it weighs in just over one pound so I couldn’t put it on this list. However, if you need a lightweight iOS device the iPad Mini 4 may suit your iPad rental needs. The Mini 4 comes equipped with a 7.9 inch retina display and weighs .66 pounds for the WiFi only model and .67 pounds for the WiFi + cellular data model.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 9.7”
Weighing in at .95 pounds on the WiFi only variant, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 narrowly squeezes into this article. The S3 boasts a 9.7 inch Super AMOLED display. Samsung has been testing around with some new ideas with their tablets, and the S3 comes with a stylus called the S Pen and can also be coupled with a keyboard.
HP Pro Tablet 608 G1
The HP Pro Tablet 608 is what some might dub an “oldie but a goodie”. The 608 released back in 2015, but it is one of the only Windows tablets that I could find which weighs less than a pound. The 608 comes equipped with a 7.86 inch display and a version of Windows 10.
