Am thinking of buying an inexpensive ($400 or under) Lenovo tablet (not phone) with touch screen simply to watch how-to videos on youtube and to watch continuing education videos from home via my wireless router. I'd prefer windows 7, not 10 or chrome. I'd also want it to accept sdram cards. It doesn't have to have a cdrom, as I have a usb one. Recommendations?

All Lenovo (and other vendors) consumer tablets (Miix and Yoga) have issues because there is no longer any quality control and no testing (and no support). Typical issues are that wireless devices stops working after wakeup from sleep mode and so on. The reason is pending bugs in BIOS and drivers because nobody has ever tested these devices before the release. Sometimes an update (if Lenovo bothers) helps but it is better to check issues in Lenovo forums for particular selected model before the purchase (there is famous Yoga 2 10 tablet wake up issue Lenovo has never resolved).
Depending on your display size preference, Miix tablets (or rather 2-in-1 with detachable keyboard) seems to be a good option.
I am not sure whether the USB port on tablet can deliver power for an external CD ROM. It is a bit awkward setup these days
