Small Windows 8.1 tablets are an amazing value for business

[featured][/featured] There was a time a hundred bucks might get you a decent computer accessory like a high end mouse, or speakers, but a full-fledged computer? Unheard of until now.

Recent price breakthroughs in Intel-based tablets and special offers from Microsoft have produced a slew of great tablet deals at $100-$200 for full-fledged Windows 8.1 tablets in the 7- to 8-inch display range.
