You can buy a Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet for $139.
The Nextbook Flexx 8.9, from budget tablet maker E Fun, is a 8.9-inch tablet complete with detachable keyboard, priced at sub-Chromebook levels. It’s not exactly a performance powerhouse, but as Liliputing reports you really can’t complain for the price.
The budget device runs Windows 10, and is powered by a Quad Core Intel Atom Z3735G Bay Trail processor. It offers 32 GB of solid state storage and 1 GB of RAM — which isn’t a lot, but enough to run Windows 10 competently if you don’t go overboard with multitasking.
The detachable keyboard has a single USB 2.0 port, so you can plug in a mouse or USB card while docked. The tablet body itself has a micro USB 2.0 port and a MicroSD Card slot, so you can add more storage if you need to, and Bluetooth 4.0 support for your wireless speakers and input devices.
There’s even a micro HDMI port, meaning with an adapter, you could hook this thing up to your TV or any other display. Not bad for a $140 tablet.
If you’ll mostly use the device for browsing the Web and working on the occasional document, it’ll get the job done. Speaking of working on documents: this device comes with the mobile version of Microsoft Office, not the full desktop version. Considering that Office Home & Student 2016 actually retails for $10 more than this device, excluding the desktop software probably makes sense.
The Nextbook Flexx 8.9 comes in your choice of black, blue, or purple. You can buy one right now at Walmart, if you’re so inclined.
