  3. Why are old crappy windows 8 tablets so expensive?

So long story short, I need an Intel-anything with windows.

Something I can interface quickly without a monitor solely for using adb on my phone. I don't need the device to be fast, responsive, or even good, just do one specific task I couldn't do on my phone.

I remember buying one of these pieces of junk, like the toshiba encore and dell venue. Brand new out of the box they were $55 on eBay, this was 2015/2016.

So in 2019 I'm thinking, okay, surely some jagoff is going to have this paper weight for 15 bucks, right? no big D...

Nope.

The cheapest used model is $70, new are $500. Wth? I've had these, they're awful. Why are they so expensive?

Where can I get a working windows tablet for less than $25?!

Actually you think Walmart has a good return policy on laptops?

Wal-Mart's return policy on laptops is short-term but very lenient. As long as you have the receipt and any damage was not clearly user-caused you can bring it back for a full refund.

I won't debate if windows 8 was great or not... Just the Intel Z3735 series and below didn't do the OS any favors.

With any hope I wish I could return it the very same day.

Im asking people around me to borrow their laptop for 5 minutes and they act like Im up to nefarious deeds. I just want to flash TWRP on my phone.

Probably for businesses. I worked with a company that used them, still uses them, kinda refuses to update.
