Microsoft Windows is struggling to compete against Google Android and Apple iOS in the tablet market, but the company is steadily growing a following. For consumers operating on a budget - and seeking a Windows-powered tablet device - there are a few different models available for $100 or less.

The Toshiba Encore Mini, Hewlett-Packard Stream 7, and E-FUN 8-inch Nextbook currently are Windows 8.1-powered tablets available for less than $100, with functionality that includes being able to open and use Word documents and play Xbox games. These devices also have one year of Office 365 for free, along with 1TB of Microsoft OneDrive storage space.

Despite a low price tag, the tablets have just 32GB of storage and typically don't have high-resolutions - and typically have limited connectivity.

Windows saw a massive 67.3 percent year-over-year growth in 2014, and now accounts for 4.6 percent of the tablet market, according to the IDC research group.
