Where can I get a cheap under $200 Windows 7 8"+ tablet that allows "handwritten notes to Microsoft Word" OCR ?

Maybe something like below Android purchase and then install my already purchased Win7 OS over the top ?

Hi that YouTube refers to an Android app that accesses a Windows 7 session on a cloud server over the internet. You must have an internet connection all the time, and a subscription to the service, I think Onlive Desktop is about $5/month. No Android tablets will run Windows 7 natively. Also, the remote Windows 7 session most isn't handwriting enabled ie it doesn't support ink or tablet functions, and the Office applications are not the full version by any means.

So where do you go from here? Maybe you could purchase a used HP Slate for about $300. They are heavier than a typical tablet, battery life not as long, but it is Windows 7, has a digitiser pen and is handwriting enabled, so could probably suit your application after you install Office. It has an embedded version of Windows though, so you can't us your license.

Hope that helps
...Terry
