    I recently purchased a Lenovo Yoga Tab 2 for $149 brand new. This model has better specs than the Yoga Tab 3. Mine was made in December 2015 and purchased in February. If does not come with a keyboard and it is an 8 inch Android Lollipop tablet.
    Easily used with a Bluetooth or as I'm doing a USB keyboard.

    I'd prefer an SD and USB 2.0 (ideally 3.0) slot
    GPS chip is nice, but not necessarily a must. WiFi only.
    HDMI output is a must.
    Just to remind folks what the OPs requirements are.

It was great until that last update a few years back and, like most others, I've never been able to get it to behave since, even with Crombi.
    I would go for Galaxy Tab S2. Impeccable display, fast prossessor, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, 128GB expandable. But no Sim slot. You have to use Wifi.

    The consensus has always been that the Samsung tablets way out-perform the Asus line. But well they should; they cost between half-again and twice as much.

    What I don't get is why people buy an expensive Android tablet with high specs now they can buy a Windows device with even better specs for far less money. As far as I can see, Android on tablets should be about buying a functional device that is very affordable because the OS is free. I.E. you get a designed mobile OS powering a mobile device at a cheap price.

    Just my view, but...
    If someone wants a high quality mobile device - buy an iPad.
    If you want full desktop functionality & a 2-in-1 device, buy a Windows 10 2-in1
    If you want an affordable device that is still designed for purpose, buy a budget Android tablet. It doesn't have to be from a doubtful chinese source. Acer, Asus & Samsung all produce models in that category.
    If you want an affordable, fast, completely secure, no maintenance, functional laptop - buy a Chromebook.

    I have no idea why people buy a Windows machine & then hack it to put Android on it
    Nor do I know why people still want HDMI out, now there is wifi direct, DLNA, Chromecast etc etc etc

    Also keep in mind that a "budget" machine today is roughly an order of magnitude more powerful than, say, five years ago. OK, that's very roughly. Processors are faster and have multiple cores, RAM is faster and much bigger, so is flash storage. Not to mention the improvements in firmware in that time. So if you're actually planning on using your new machine for a particular purpose, writing the great American novel or maybe just viewing the latest pics of the grandkids, a "budget" tablet now is probably as good or better than a "premium" tablet from just a few years back. And did I mention the better cameras?

    For myself, well, I'm never going to be the great American novelist, but for the stuff I do with a tablet (yes the family pics are in there), I can't beat the 700. That's why I have two myself, and the better half has another.

    The increase of power in devices is staggering. As is the quality of the apps in use. Especially for those of us who remember using 8086 cpu's...

    Yeah, I have a 486 machine in boxes out in the storage shed. As of 5 years ago, it still booted! I'd thought to donate a bunch of that sort of thing to the high school, but they aren't interested in anything historical. Nothing but the latest Windows-base stuff for them!

    I had a Packard Bell 386 running Windows 3.1 which I sold to an acquaintance for $386.

    Wonder what the OP is contemplating after the suggestions made here in this thread. I would avoid any of the budget tablets (Under $100) and stick with quality products like the Asus brand.

    By the way, there are at least 3 dual-OS tablets (Windows and Android) on the market at approx. $120.

    I don't see how that can compare - the operating systems are totally different. In my household we use various devices including the four major operating systems, and the one who gives us grief all of the time is the laptop with Windows 10. I still regret that it was upgraded from 8.1, that one at least made some sense and worked as described.
