On the bargain (but functional) end there are some tablets that, with some tweaking, can do a lot of stuff:

~$110 NEW Ainol Elf II or Ainol Aurora
Dual Core Cortex A9 w/ Mali-400 Graphics, Android 4.0 ICS and Capacitative Touch 1024x600 screen. The Aurora has an IPS screen, & mediocre front camera. Connections: Mini HDMI, Micro USB, Micro SD Card
Some Apps it runs nicely: Skype, Netflix, Hulu, Kindle, Google Play, Pandora, plenty of 3D games

~$70 Refurbished Elocity A7+
Dual Core Cortex A9 (Tegra II) w/ Tegra 250 Graphics, Android 2.2 Froyo, & Capacitative Touch 1024x600 screen, & mediocre front camera. Connections: Full-size HDMI, full-size USB (for flash sticks, mice, keyboards, or USB hubs), Micro SD Card.
Some Apps it runs nicely: Skype, Netflix, Hulu, Kindle, Google Play, Pandora, plenty of 3D games

There's a chance tablets like these (great for kids or friends you don't want to spend tons on) may go a bit cheaper. I suppose this isn't as much a prediction as a bottom-line for comparison.
