How cheap is too cheap? That's the question you may be asking yourself as there is a new Windows 8.1 tablet on-sale now that pushes down on the pricing floor for these types of tablets.
The device, called the iView SupraPad i700QW, costs $59.99 and can be bought from Newegg right now. So, what do you get for the price? Well, the specs are quite similar to every other cheap Windows 8.1 tablet and include an Intel BayTrail CPU running at 1.33 GHz, 16GB of memory, 1024x600 7in display, 1 GB of DDR3 RAM, 0.3 MP front and 2.0 MP rear cameras, MicroSD card support for up to 32GB, 2800mAh battery and of course, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi support.
As with the other low-end tablets, this device does come one year of Office 365 which includes 1 TB of OneDrive storage. So, if you need a license for Office 365, think of this as buying the subscription and getting a free tablet because at this price point, it's the same as the cheapest offering for stand-alone Office subscription packages.
Or, another way to think of it, you can buy 1 TB of OneDrive storage for $59.99 ( DropBox charges $99 for one year) and you get a free tablet and a free subscription to Office 365.
The reviews of the device are exactly what you would expect for a tablet at this price point. The device is only good for entry level tasks as Windows 8.1 takes up most of the storage of the internal 16GBs which means an SD card is just about mandatory. Also, battery life is said to only last around 3 hours as well.
