You don't have to spend a lot to get a great Windows 10 tablet.

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, but 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 that aren't worth your money, so we rounded up the best affordable Windows 10 tablets. All of them are worthy of your attention.

Updated March 28, 2017: While most of our list still stands, we removed an older option and introduced a new one from NuVision.

HP Envy 8 Note

HP Envy Note 8

The Envy 8 Note from HP is an interesting one, because you can have a full-sized keyboard to use with it. But you also get a teeny-tiny laptop experience.

In fact, it's only the size of the actual tablet that would stop you from trying to replace your laptop with it. The 1080p display measures eight inches diagonally, and it's all driven by an Intel Atom x5 processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage.

With an aluminum frame and audio tuned by Bang and Olufsen, the Envy 8 Note certainly stands out from the crowd. It's also packing LTE connectivity to truly be a mobile productivity machine. It probably won't replace a laptop, in part due to size and part due to a lack of ports, but you can definitely get things done on this PC.

Chuwi Hi8 Pro

If you're prepared to take a risk on a product from a brand about which you've no idea on reputation or customer service, you might actually be surprised. And that's not only because the Hi8 Pro boots into both Android and Windows. It's packing a 1920 x 1200 resolution display, USB-C and an Intel x5 processor for little more than $100. That is crazy value.

You can get an official, optional keyboard case, but you can also do better by finding your own. If you're chasing a bang-for-your-buck tablet, the Hi8 Pro should place high up on that list.

Dell Venue 10 Pro

Dell Venue 10 Pro

Getting a cheap 10-inch Windows tablet is a little harder because when things get bigger, so too does the price. Well, most of the time. The Dell Venue Pro 10 slips in easily under $200 and still offers plenty to entice the tablet buyer.

Besides having a 10-inch display, the Venue 10 Pro also supports Dell's own Active Pen inputs, albeit with an additional purchase. Also optional is a keyboard dock to transform it into a highly portable laptop.

The processor inside is a little weak, but it comes well equipped. There's a full-sized USB port, a microSD card slot, Micro USB for charging and a Micro-HDMI output to plug into a bigger screen. Priced similarly to some smaller tablets, the Venue 10 Pro can offer a little more productivity without damaging your wallet.

Lenovo Miix 310

Lenovo Miix 310

This tablet has 64GB of storage, optional LTE, a great keyboard and excellent battery life. All of these are things you'll get with Lenovo's Miix 310, which may look a little plain but has it where it counts. You also get the benefit of a 10-inch display, which means it's plenty possible to actually use the Miix 310 to get some light work done.

The display is 1280 x 800 resolution, which isn't the highest, but given the price point it's about right. And the quad-core Atom processor and 2GB of RAM should lead to a fairly smooth Windows 10 experience. The 33Wh battery supposedly gets up to 10 hours of life, and even though it's pretty slim and compact, there's a Micro-HDMI output to plug into a bigger display.

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 under $100, 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.
