Pipo W11 tablet – $ 269.99 at Banggood
(£ 212.40 / AU $ 383.51)
Pipo isn’t a budget brand, but given that the W11 is less than half the price of the Microsoft Surface Go 2 – and has superior performance, storage, and connectivity – it’s worth a look.
The new Surface Go 2 Microsoft’s Tablet Got Solid Rating From TechRadar; We have described it as “an excellent, affordable Windows 10 tablet with a premium design that can be found in the company’s more expensive devices.”
However, if you want something even cheaper, check out the Pipo W11, which is around half the price of Microsoft’s tiny tablet.
Pipo is not a household name, but we have known the company since 2014 when it first introduced the company Pipo W2 Tablet. The W11 follows in the footsteps of this 6 year old device that ran on a little known operating system called Windows 8.1 at the time.
The W11 also comes with a keyboard cover and pen for the princely sum of $ 269.99 (£ 212.40 / AU $ 383.51). For comparison, the cheapest Surface Go 2 configuration with a pen and keyboard cover costs $ 568.97 – more than double the price.
The W11 is convincing in terms of performance, as its Celeron N4100 CPU outperforms the Pentium 4425Y of the Surface Go 2 according to the CPUBenchmark. It’s also superior in terms of storage (Pipo’s candidate has 64GB of eMMC plus a dedicated 180GB SSD) and connectivity (the W11 has three more ports than its rival).
On the other hand, the Surface Go 2 has a smaller screen with a higher resolution that produces sharper images, as well as a larger battery capacity and longer battery life, higher resolution cameras, faster Wi-Fi / Bluetooth and is far lighter.
Companies looking for a cheap Business tablet Because of their return policy, free tech support, and in-store assistance, they’re likely on the Microsoft device’s side too.
