I have a refurb Dell Latitude 10 ST2 Windows 8.1 Tablet from eBay that I like ok, but was wondering about similar sized tablets with faster processor that are also inexpensive.


Bought the Dell to see if I even liked using a tablet. (Like new for $74)

It is marginally adequate, but pretty slow on the internet.

Generally speaking, the faster the CPU (central processing unit), the higher the cost.


Low-end Windows tablets, (like yours), usually run on Intel Atom CPUs. High-end units are more like laptops in that they are often running Intel's Core i3, i5 or i7 (the fastest) CPUs. Even though these do draw more power and require extra cooling hardware, they allow you to get real work done. Between these two are Intel's Core M CPUs. They're more like the Atom in that they don't require extra cooling, however, they are more powerful.
