    This is a very broad question, eBay has a bunch of Tablets that will run Win7 in the $300-500 range. Acer has the W500 that is $549/new....

    Almost any tablet built in the last 4-5 years will run Win7, my lowest was a Fujitsu U810 (800 MHz CPU/1 GB of RAM).

    Are you looking for a slate or convertable?

    I was looking for something less than $300. Any style is fine.

    Im seeing it for around $500. Nm, i'll just find something used off of ebay. Shame, theres a ton of android slates for only a couple hundred, windows slates seem to be at least double that.

    Windows tablets tend to require more expensive hardware currently, x86 CPUs, more RAM and disk and often have pen digitizers.

    The higher hardware needs of Windows is one big reason why Microsoft is holding the line on Windows hardware requirements for Windows 8 and developing an ARM version that'll run on cheaper are hardware.

    That said there are a ton of cheap Android devices out there that suck with some exceptions like the Nook Color. The better Android devices tend to start at about $400 USD.

    Under $300? You could get an HP TC4400 for that, or if you're lucky, a Lenovo X61t/X61 Tablet. (Search for both"X61t" and "X61 Tablet", especially since listings that show up under one may not show up under the other.)
