A different deal may appear each time you click into their site.

- Toshiba Encore 7" Tablet for $49 in-store early
For this morning only, Microsoft Stores are selling a certain number of Toshiba Encore Mini 7-inch Tablets for $49 in-store.
They are also throwing in a free MicroSD card for free.
Quantity varies by location, and the $49 price is expected to go up to $79 by 12noon.
See your local Microsoft store hours for opening times.
According to a Cnet review, "if you're interested in running full Windows 8.1 on a tiny tablet for cheap, the Encore Mini is available now."
Beware, however, this tablet only has 1GB of ram which is barely enough to run the included Windows 8.1.
The reviews of this tablet are fair to poor, with most people mentioning its underpowered processor and RAM for the Windows 8.1 operating system.
That being said, it can take MicroSD cards, which can add up to 128GB of additional storage at a low cost, something that an iPad cannot do.
Also, it does run Windows 8.1 apps, while slowly, it is the cheapest tablet around that can do that.
