Microsoft cuts 40% off Windows 10 tablet with stylus and 10.1-inch Full HD screen; now $149

If you're on the lookout for an affordable Windows 10 tablet with a stylus, you may be interested in a deal currently available at the Microsoft Store.

Microsoft has slashed $100 (40%) off the NuVision Solo 10 Draw, which features a 10.1-inch display with Full HD resolution, and comes with a 'digital pen' and a free sleeve for the device. Now priced at just $149, it's available in three colors - blue, pink and silver - and with a body that's just 8.3mm thick, it's slimmer than some smartphones.

Key specs of the NuVision Solo 10 Draw include:

  • 10.1-inch IPS LCD with Full HD (1920x1200px) resolution and 10-finger multi-touch
  • Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB eMMC storage (plus microSD card slot)
  • 2MP front-facing webcam
  • 5MP rear camera
  • 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi with Miracast support
  • microUSB 2.0 port
  • microHDMI port
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • 260 x 159 x 8.4mm; 520g

As you might expect of such a low-cost device, there are a couple of downsides. You'll get eMMC storage, rather than the superior SSD; and the manufacturer's stated battery life of "up to 6 hours" is likely to be far lower in real-world usage. Even so, the NuVision tablet still seems to have plenty to offer for the price, especially considering Microsoft's latest Windows Ink improvements in its new Windows 10 Creators Update.

There's no indication of when this deal is due to end, so if you're thinking of going for it, it might be best not to wait too long before doing so.

If you've got a bigger budget to work with, you may wish to consider Microsoft's Surface Pro 4; the company is currently offering a free Surface Dock worth $199.99 with all models in the US.
