This is the 8 inch version of the x98. the differences are size, retina display, an $80-90 cheaper.

$139 with 5 day shipping. I found  few video reviews, mostly directly to performance like running games under 8.1.

I'm still struggling over whether to order one of these or not. My big hurdle is how to justify my insane practice of buying tablets,  just because, to my wife.  She thinks I'm  nuts already.   Why do I need this?  Well, it does run a full version of windows 8.1.  It comes with microsoft office for one year, from what I've read I should be able to install quickbooks on it so I could write and send estimates and invoices when on the road.  But, I hate working  when we go away for a few days so,maybe I should just buy new boots. But I want one.  Its a cheap hobby really.  A couple hundred bucks every six months or so.  Plus I do have a Touchpad I could sell.

Actually if this works as well as a friend of mines review says I may be trimming my tablet collection way down. Probably will end up with just the Mini, Fire HDX, and this.

I'm thinking if I really wanted to take advantage of the windows aspect of it i should go with the x98.  Marry that to a Bluetooth  keyboard and mouse and you have a pretty justifiable laptop replacement.  The 8" screen on the 80h might be a tad small for that use.  But then you are spending200 bucks which i wont do right now.

The cool thing about these tablets is they still have hdmi out.  So connect it to a monitor, bluetooth keyboard and mouse.  That keeps the usb port available to keep it connected to the charger.  Then you've got a pretty fair desktop pc set up.

For the $200 the x98 is a steal no doubt. The closest comparable name brand is in the high $600 with no 3g or 4g.

So I am really curious about what a windows based tablet could be used for.  I just bought a new pc so I am discovering windows 8.1 for the first time.  So far it has been kind of a game of hide and seek.  I'm figuring it out little by little.  So how could a tablet with 32 gb on board run windows and all the various applications.  My new pc has a 1 terrabit hard drive and 8 gb ram.  Granted the pc will hold every document, picture and song I've aquired over the last twenty years.  But still.  Will this really run windows as well or nearly as well as a pc?

There is one thing about Tinydeals. You can spend hours browsing all the junk they have.

Have you considered a Win 8.1 set top box? They have them with the same specs as these tablets so you just add a mouse/keyboard and connect it to your TV.

My need (if I really had one) would be for accessing quick books while out of town.  So a laptop would be handy.   But a 10" windows tablet with a keyboard would probably work pretty well too.  I'm really thinking about getting that 98x dual boot.  I have several trips planned in the next few months and it would be nice to send out invoices while I'm gone.  I have guys in the shop but I am the only one that handles the books.
