It used to be that a good Windows 10 device cost an arm and a leg, and the cheap ones were rubbish. But that's the past. Today there are plenty of affordable, quality Windows 10 tablets to choose from, so picking the best one for you is more difficult than ever before.

Be it a small tablet to toss in your bag or a big one to replace your aging laptop, you don't have to spend a ton to get what you need. There are some pricey options that aren't worth your money, so we rounded up the best affordable Windows 10 tablets. All of them are worthy of your attention.

A great deal

Chuwi Hi10 Pro

Chinese brand Chuwi is doing some great work in providing affordable, yet good quality Windows 10 products. The Hi10 Pro is a 10.8-inch tablet with a full HD IPS display powered by an Intel Atom x5 processor.

Add to that 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM and you've got a fair amount of power for $206. You even get USB-C, there are an optional keyboard and active stylus, too. You also get a dual-boot option for Android, if that sort of thing appeals to you.

Affordable Surface

Microsoft Surface Go

While more expensive than some budget Windows tablets, a special shoutout has to go to Microsoft's Surface Go.

For $399 you get the Surface experience on a smaller scale, with a 10-inch Pixelsense display, the traditional Surface kickstand and optional type cover and pen. It's everything that we love about a Surface but for less money. You'll get 64GB or 128GB of storage and 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and now, finally, a USB-C port.

As a tablet this is potentially the Surface to go for as well. It's small enough to toss in any bag and comfortable use while sat on the sofa or while travelling to watch a movie. And with a Surface Pen you've got a great, highly portable digital notebook.

The Surface Go is set to ship from August 2 in the U.S.

Great price

NuVision 8-inch

You may not get the same build quality here as with a Lenovo, Dell or HP tablet, but what you do get is an incredible price for the hardware.

For your money, you get an Intel Atom x5 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and an 8-inch, 1920 x 1200 resolution display.

Throw in a microSD card slot, around six hours of battery life and something that weighs not much more than half a pound, and you have a great, inexpensive Windows 10 tablet to throw in your bag and take anywhere you go.

For $129 you can bundle this tablet with a 64GB microSD card to expand your storage, which is a pretty great deal.

Sleek

Fusion 5 10-inch

This 10-inch tablet from Fusion 5 costs less than $200 and is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom processor.

It's not the greatest looking device out there, but with 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM and plenty of ports to connect things, as well as HDMI out, you've got a sleek, lightweight little PC for not a lot of cash.

It's available in the U.S. for around $180, and you can pick it up for the same price elsewhere in the world, such as Europe. If you're looking for something a little bigger, there's an 11.6-inch version for $250.

Looks great

Chuwi Hi8 Pro

The second tablet on our list from Chuwi is the Hi8 Pro, a smaller, more portable tablet that still packs some great hardware at a terrific price.

As you'll guess from the name it's an 8-inch tablet and the star feature is the 1920x1200 resolution display. It looks great and for $140 is pretty special. The rest of the tablet is what you'd expect at this price, with an Intel x5 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

It also has a dual-boot option that offers an Android 5.1 experience which you can take or leave. More interesting is the USB-C, so you're ready for the future standard as well as the ability to hook up to an external display and use it like a little PC.
