Hell of a deal.  But I can't use a darn tablet.
Has Windows 8.1 and comes with a micro SD card and Office 365
for one year.  The Office 365 comes with 1 terabyte of Onedrive.

It's $149 now but will be on sale the 27th for $99.

Click Here for the current tablet.

Click Here for the Black Friday deals.
It's several pages into the ad.

yep, that's a good deal for sure. I don't really need a tablet but if i were to get one I'd probably swing for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0" Tablet 8GB. It's $179 and would basically be just a bigger version of my phone. Should be some good buys this holiday season.

Just bought one online.  Honey's not going shopping today
breaking a long string of yearly participation.

I'll enjoy seeing it and playing with it a little but it's really
not for me, Honey encouraged me to buy it and stood here
at my shoulder shouting directions through the whole
transaction.

EDIT: Used my gift cards.

Can't believe I'm saying this but I'm waiting for my wife to return to help
me set up the Windows tablet.  Got it named, a keyboard popped up
on screen.  I'm at tying it to a Windows account, hadn't decided but
there's no on screen keyboard anyway.

And I haven't been paying much attention the last few months, a no
name tablet for $99 isn't an special deal.  At the Microsoft online store
they have:

Toshiba Encore Mini WT7-C16MS Signature Edition Tablet - $99
7-inch Toshiba Encore Mini at the MS Store. It runs Intel’s leisurely Atom Z3735G chip (more info) and comes equipped with 1GB RAM, 16GB of memory, a microSD slot, and a micro USB slot. The device should come with an attached pencil sharpener so your fingertips can manage the 1280-by-768-pixel screen. It also includes front and back cameras and 802.11n wireless with Miracast (Microsoft’s more expensive and less used answer to Chromecast

HP Stream 7 Signature Edition Tablet $99

7-inch HD IPS touchscreen 800x1280
Intel Atom Z3735G quad core
1GB memory/32GB SSD
Includes Office 365 Personal1 for use with 1 PC and 1 tablet ($69.99 value)

LOL! You and Ma get that thing up and running? Certainly there's an onscreen keyboard. Might have to invoke it in some way (little keyboard button on the bottom?)

Getting Honey to help was a momentary illusion.  Should have known
better.

Just got a call from her at RadioShack, I'd mentioned a mini USB to
female USB so I can plug in a USB hub or at least a mouse or
keyboard depending on what I needed at the time.
She was talking to some lady there and had found a mini SD to
SD adapter and wanted to make sure it was the right thing.
No.  Finally the lady told her all she had was a complete cable
for$29.99. No.  Forget it Honey.

Had it up and running anyway by myself.  Found the little button
for the onscreen keyboard and downloaded and installed
Teamviewer but it was the portable one.  Got it on the 24 inch
monitor anyway and got quite a bit done.  Tried to install
Teamviewer but it said the one I was using to install it had to
be closed first.  Can't see it or work it with just the tablet.
Aggravating, I'll do more later.
