That $60 WinBook Tablet Is Still $60

Earlier this month, we reviewed a 7-inch WinBook tablet running Windows 8.1 that cost just $60. Our verdict was that it's an amazing value. The catch was that the price was part of a promotion at Micro Center stores that was good through Jan. 25.

In the updates department, the sale is over, but the price remains the same. In fact, the price now also applies to online orders, as well, meaning this little PC isn't just for those within driving distance of one of Micro Center's two dozen locations.

Also, in case you were wondering, the TW700 Tablet we tested still works one week later.
