US electronics retailer Micro Center has started selling a 7-inch version of its Windbook Windows tablet after launching 8-inch models earlier this year. More importantly, the new WinBook TW70CA17 model is on sale for just $59.99, which is the lowest price we have seen yet for a new Windows 8.1 tablet.
The tablet has a 1280x800 resolution display and an Intel BayTrail-T Z3735G quad-core processor with a clock speed of 1.33GHz. It contains 1GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage, along with 2 megapixel cameras on both the front and rear of the tablet.
Micro Center is still selling its two 8-inch Winbook tablets as well; with one priced at $99.99 with the exact same hardware specs as the 7-inch model, and the other for $139.99 with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. As we have reported before, these prices and devices are only available for people who travel to one of the 25 Micro Center retail store locations in the US. Do you think a $59.99 tablet will be worth the price?
