The Toshiba Encore mini was designed for light duty. It’s the sort of tablet someone has in their lap so they can browse the web or check their social networks while watching TV, and it can handle this very well.

Naturally, a device intended for this kind of casual use needs to be very affordable, and the Encore Mini passes that bar with flying colors: Its list price is just $119, and at the time of this review could be easily found for $99.

The poor screen and lack of internal storage hampers the tablet a bit, but handicaps like those are par for the course with low-cost devices. Those looking for a tablet without any flaws are out of luck in this price range.


  • Low cost
  • Decent performance


  • Poor-quality screen
  • Very little internal storage

Bottom Line:

At just $119 or less, Toshiba’s Encore mini is not a bad choice for those who want a Windows tablet for very light use.
