In  2013 I was given a Lenovo tablet that has since done very little work but suits one of my needs perfectly. Trouble is that it now needs a repair -(about $USD65 to repair a loose micro USB power connection) but I don't know whether it's worth repairing or I should replace it.

The unit has 2GB RAM and is running an Intel Atom CPU Z2760 processor @ 1.8 GHz with 48 GB storage supplemented by a 30 GB SD Card. It is running Windows 10 Pro and is equipped with MS Office Pro including MS Access (not transferable). It also has 3G Connectivity.

Can anyone tell me whether this is an absolute  low end unit that is well out of date or one that would cost a substantial amount to replace and may be worth the investment?
