Windows may not be the best operating system for tablets, due to the scarcity of high-quality, tablet-specific (touchscreen-friendly) apps in the Windows Store.

But with Microsoft offering Windows licenses for free to makers of small-screen devices, you can pick up a halfway decent Windows tablet for cheaper than a budget Android tablet these days.

Case in point: Amazon is currently selling a NuVision 8 inch tablet with Windows 10, an Atom x5-Z8300 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 1920 x 1200 pixel display for just $67.

While you might have a hard time finding tablet apps for the device, that’s a pretty good price for a tablet that you can use to surf the web, watch videos, or take notes on the go. The Edge web browser can also function as an eBook reader thanks to EPUB and PDF support, so depending on your needs, you might not even need to look for third-party apps to get your money’s worth out of this cheap tablet.

Here are some of the day’s best deals.

  1. The hardware is pretty bad, I think the only good Atom processor was the x7 that was used on the Surface 3. The combination of X5 and the flash drive used in those tablets is not good.

  2. If you’re curious about the 9.7″ Windows PC, someone else has it on eBay for $21 plus $9 shipping.

  3. Ughhh so tempting to upgrade my Windows Tablet and these are indeed very cheap… I’m not concerned about the lack of touchscreen apps from the store since the main reason I use Windows is for Win32 apps anyways. Is the performance of the Atom x5 in these significantly better than the Atom Z3735? My current tablet has 4G connectivity but I can live without that if the performance is better.

  4. Win10 and 2GB RAM is a joke, and not a funny one. The similar 9.7″ tablet has this ‘warning’ as one of it’s key selling features: “If tablet freezes or runs sluggishly – may be due to overloading the processor, running too many apps at the same time, or using the tablet while updates take place in the background.” Multiple open browser windows makes it crawl. Browser and email at the same time kills these tablets. Microsoft email client kills itself randomly. All the time CPU is close to 100%, RAM close to max usage and trashing the painfully slow disk. I like the HW, but hate the SW.

    1. I have the older version of the tablet and as long as you know what it is for, it’s not bad. I use it to read books, browse a few websites on the go and sometimes to send a couple of emails or edit a few documents. It serves its purpose that way. When I need a more beefy experience, I either turn to my laptop or desktop or remotely connect to them through TeamViewer or Microsoft’s rdp.

    2. Equally laughable is the 32GB storage- I have a different brand, but same specs, and have installed windows updates, and Chrome. After a year, the device has run out of disk space.

      This is slightly exacerbated by the fact that it dual boots Windows and Android, but I’ve NEVER booted the device in Android.

      I hate to say it, but Windows 7/8/10 in 32GB is just a bad idea.

    3. Yeah, I only included these because they’re *so* cheap that you could think of it as a single-tasking device that comes with built-in apps that you can use for web browsing, video playback, eReading, etc.

      If you want to use it as an actual Windows PC, you can do it… but it’ll be painful.

    4. Dude, it’s $65. What can you buy for $65? Also, I had a Dell Venue 8 Pro for many years that had the same basic specs and while it was not a speed-demon, it worked for basic tasks just fine – even with full desktop apps like Office 2016 and even Photoshop CS4. My sister uses it to this day as a drawing machine (with ArtRage 4) because of the active stylus support. The bigger issue is that with 32GB of eMMC you’d have to plan really carefully when the annual several GB updates come around (or you could just not update).

      1. $65 is a waste of money if the item you spent it on ends up gathering dust on a shelf somewhere. I bought a NuVision tablet a couple of years ago and that’s where it ended up very quickly. It wasn’t the speed that was the issue, but Windows itself, making for a terrible tablet experience at those specs.

        1. You can’t expect to buy an iPad-grade device for $65. Or for $100. What you do get is a full Windows PC. A really cut back one, but a full Windows PC nevertheless. Hook it up to your TV and use it as a multimedia-center. Or connect a pair of Bluetooth controllers and play some retro games. It can play anything up to GameCube at full speed. Install linux on it, or Android x86. It has an open bootloader. You can even hack a full OSX install on these things. If it’s in your drawer, you didn’t need it in the first place, it’s not because of the hardware’s limitations.
