Pendo Pad 8

Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has received glowing reviews (we reviewed the original Surface Pro) but not everyone can afford it. Perhaps you are just a student who don’t use resource-intensive programs like Adobe Premiere Pro or AutoCAD. Or perhaps you just want to introduce tablets to your parents who have grown accustomed to using Windows.

Whatever your reason is, if you only need a tablet for casual use such as web browsing and basic document writings, you may want to have a look at Pendo Pad 8, a Windows 8.1 tablet with a $199 price mark.

Sure, the specs are probably not for everyone but it may satisfy those who want a Windows 8 tablet.
