Nextbook NXW10QC32G Detachable 2-in-1 Tablet
Nextbook NXW10QC32G is a budget 10.1 inch Windows 8.1 tablet with a detachable Pogo keyboard by E-Fun Inc. It is priced very competitively for what it offers as a large tablet- sure it is not a Surface Pro with an Intel i5 CPU and is more of an entry level features machine but you’re getting a quad core Intel processor, full Windows 8.1 operating system and a solid keyboard with a functional touchpad so you can do what you do on an entry level laptop, ample storage space on flash memory flash, via SD card slot and Cloud based OneDrive and 12 month subscription to Microsoft Office 2013.
Nextbook 10.1 comes with the quad core Intel Atom Z3735G (2MB cache) at 1.33 to 1.83 Ghz speed for basic daily tasks like internet surfing and video streaming, 1GB DDR3L memory that may limit your ability to multitask efficiently but you can still open a few browsers and a couple of apps at once, 32 GB flash memory (OS takes up 4 GB so you have 28 GB left but still plenty for a tablet) plus up to 64 GB via the integrated microSD card slot and Windows 8.1 operating system. It is a great system overall that is easy to set-up, that works fast and the battery seems to last long as the Atom Z3735G has a TDP of 4 watts.
10.1 inch touchscreen with a regular 1280 x 800 pixel resolution but IPS panel with wider viewing angles offers decent picture quality when you’re viewing photos, watching movies or playing games.
