#ad I received a Nextbook Flexx 11A Windows Tablet to facilitate this review. Thoughts are my own.
We don’t really need a lot of gadgets to survive. As long as we have one or two that help us get connected when we need to — especially when it comes to work and family stuff — we should be good. But there are times when I prefer one gadget over another. Like when I’m working on any document on Microsoft Word or Excel, or Powerpoint, I would always still prefer working on a laptop or desktop with an actual keyboard than on a tablet or cellphone. It’s just a lot easier.
The Nextbook Flexx 11A is the the answer for those of us who prefer the interface of a full-on desktop PC, but need the portability of a tablet.
It supports Windows 10 OS and comes with a pogo keyboard that can be disconnected any time (so you can use it as a tablet), and connect (so you can use it as a laptop when you need a high-performance, complete mobile computing solution).
The Nextbook Flexx 11A has an 11.6” screen which is a little bigger than standard size tablet and pretty much the same size as small laptops. It has 16:9 aspect ratio and 1366 x 768 resolutions (IPS), so the Flexx 11A delivers great image quality for any user no matter the age.
Another thing that I love about the Nextbook Flexx 11A is that it has 64GB of internal memory that can be expanded by another 64GB with its microSD card slot. I mean, really, who can’t use some extra storage, right? I’m glad I won’t have to worry about having to delete photos and videos — at least not for the next year or so!
You can do with the Nextbook Flexx 11A pretty much anything you can think of doing on a desktop PC or a tablet. With its built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support for easy internet connection, you can go ahead and listen to your favorite music, watch videos on Youtube, read ebooks, play games, do work or homework, research, or update your social media pages.
It has easy access to the Windows Store, which offers hundreds of thousands of music, movies, games, and social apps, as well as tried-and-true Microsoft legacy apps that businesses around the world have successfully used for years. A huge plus for any business traveler!
You can do all that — and you don’t even have to shell out anything more than $200! Yes! And Walmart currently has special value pricing for it, so now is definitely the time to think about buying one.
Now, I’ve been using my new Nextbook Flexx 11A for a few days already, and I must say I’m loving it. I have not encountered any problems with it in the days that I’ve used it as my main laptop. No, it’s not as fast as my Macbook Air. Obviously, it would be unfair of me to compare this $179 tablet PC to a $999 computer. But this Tablet/PC works and gives me the features I want and need. So yeah, I would definitely recommend the Nextbook Flexx 11A to anyone who’s on a budget and wants a computer that can give you the portability of a tablet and the interface of a laptop.
Update 10/13/17: As I continue to use the Nextbook Flexx, I notice that there are times when it takes 2-3 seconds for it to respond to clicks — especially while playing a game. I guess the system may be having a bit of a hard time having to deliver both heavy graphics and sounds in addition to my quick clicks. So I should say that this tablet PC isn’t really for gaming. I don’t have issues when simply browsing the internet or working on a Word document, but I’ll probably go back to my iPad for games and maybe anything that requires fast clicks.
