Microsoft is serving up Windows 10 tablets for $49 and $59, but only on Friday


Microsoft is currently in its fifth day of its 12 Days of Deals sale event on the Microsoft Store, offering discounts on specific hardware each day or one day only. For Friday, the company is serving up Windows 10 devices at up to 70 percent off their original price. Two of these are Windows 10 tablets costing a mere $49 and $59, which typically sell for $129 and $149, respectively.

Here are the specs for both:

Note that these tablets are based on the “Signature Edition” of Windows 10 Home, meaning customers will find absolutely no bloatware from NuVision on the devices, offering a clean install. Also note that customers who purchase these tablets may need to grab a MicroSD card as well, given that Windows 10 Home will eat up a large portion of the internal storage. The maximum capacity offered by the MicroSD card slot isn’t provided on the product pages.


As for which tablet is a better buy, that’s a good question. The cheaper W560L model has a slightly lower clock speed than the W610L model, but a slightly faster graphics clock speed. The W560L’s memory is slightly slower, too, and it’s not as thin and light as the W610 version. If anything, customers are shelling out an extra $10 for the W610L’s overall lightweight size. Other than that, they’re nearly identical.

If you’re looking for a slightly larger Windows 10 2-in-1 PC, Microsoft is also knocking the price off HP’s x2 10-p092ms with a detachable keyboard. It too offers Windows 10 Home Signature Edition so that customers don’t have to deal with all the resource-hogging, unwanted software OEMs such as HP and Dell like to slap on their PCs. Here are the specs for this model:
