It’s official. You can now get a small Windows tablet with long battery life and support for desktop and mobile apps for less than the price of a new Google Nexus 7.

While most 8 inch Windows tablets have starting prices around the $300 mark, we’ve regularly seen them go on sale for much lower prices — and at the moment you can pick up a Lenovo Miix 2 8″ tablet from Best Buy for just $200.

The jury’s still out on whether Windows tablets are truly competitive with iPads or Android tablets. There aren’t as many tablet-friendly apps for Windows as there are for Android or iOS, but the Windows Store has a growing number of decent apps. But Windows tablets have their perks — try running the full versions of Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, QuickBooks, or other desktop apps on an iPad or Nexus tablet.

Here are some of the day’s best deals.

  1. Try running full versions of Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, QuickBooks, or other desktop apps on a windows 8 tablet. Putting a keyboard/mouse on it makes it no longer a tablet.

  2. I call Windows software, “programs”, and not “apps”, to indicate
    the “full strength” or “commercial grade” of the Windows software.
    I will allow “applications” to describe Windows software (never to be shortened or abbreviated to “apps”). I think the small Windows
    software was called “applets” by someone before. Somewhere
    in all this is “widgets”.
