Now that all five of my kids are in school, coordinating computer time in the evenings can get a bit tricky when they all have online homework. My laptop is off limits (they've had one too many accidents to be trusted with it), and the designated kid laptop is currently in need of repair (see?!?).
Which leaves my only my husband's laptop to be shared among the five, inevitably leading to a lot of arguing. They do have iPad Minis, but without a keyboard, they don't play well with the websites my kids are using to complete their work... When a Windows representative emailed to ask if I'd be interested in trying out one of the new Nextbook 10.1 tablets, it was a no brainer!
Featuring a detachable POGO keyboard, the 2-in-1 Nextbook Windows tablet is perfect for my kids' homework needs. It's actually also perfect for the activities my husband uses a computer for, namely email, Internet searches and YouTube videos. Priced at $179 currently, it's an incredible value -- plus it comes with a free one year subscription for Office 365 Personal, which includes 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage, and 60 Skype world minutes per month.
Larger than my kids' iPad Minis, the Nextbook 10.1 Tablet is probably more on par with the full size iPad. I was a little surprised by how heavy it is in comparison, but at the same time, it's nice to have a tablet that feels more sturdy.
The screen resolution is great, and the keyboard is very comfortable to type on. The keyboard removes effortlessly, taking the Nextbook from netbook to tablet quickly and easily, and 32GB of memory is gives you enough space to download a multitude of apps and/or media.
The Nextbook 10.1 Tablet features include:
- 10.1” 1280 x 800 IPS screen with capacitive multi-touch and expanded viewing angles
- Windows 8.1 Operating System
- Quad-Core Intel® AtomTM Processor (2M cache, up to 1.83 GHz); 1GB DDR3L system memory
- 32GB internal storage; expandable via microSD card up to 64GB
- Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity options
- Front webcam and 2 megapixel back camera with microphone
- Micro USB port, mini HDMI port, audio jack
- Preloaded software including Nook for Windows 8
All in all, I think the Nextbook 10.1 Tablet is a great option for families with school-aged children. The Windows Nextbook 10.1 Tablet should be able to keep up with all of your needs, and the storage is easily expandable via a microSD card up to 64GB as your needs increase.
Note that the Nextbook 10.1 Tablet is out of stock online right now but can still be purchased in store at Walmart.
I'm so thrilled to share that Windows has provided me with a Nextbook 10.1 Tablet to give away to one lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader!
