Working from home as a full-time blogger, I feel like if I’m not parenting my 2 ½ year old and 4 ½ year old, I’m working on my laptop. If I’m not on my laptop, I’m multitasking cooking, cleaning, driving my son to school while simultaneously checking my phone or tablet for work related emails (not while driving of course).
When I was given the opportunity to try out the new Nextbook Flexx 11A 2-in-1 tablet with Windows 10 AND give one away to a lucky reader, I jumped on it. First, I love the price point of this tablet. It’s priced at just $179.00 on Walmart.com. Head HERE to view this laptop. Secondly, I loved the idea that this tablet functions as both a laptop and a tablet giving us a lot of bang for our buck.
I wanted to test out this tablet and see if this tablet would allow me to work both home and while I’m on the road. I also wanted to see if this tablet would be family friendly and if my kiddos can use it while on roadtrips. My children don’t use tablets much but when we are on longer roadtrips, it’s a treat for them to watch movies on their tablet. I was curious if this Nextbook Flexx 11A 2-in-1 tablet would meet all of our needs.
Setting up the Nextbook Flexx 11A was a breeze. I had to charge it and then once turning it on, the screen gave me both audio and visual instructions on how to set it up. Within less than a few minutes, I was ready to use the tablet. Setting up Wi-Fi was a breeze as the introductory instructions walked me that process as well.
One of the first things I noticed when holding the Nextbook Flexx 11A is that it is lightweight. It is less than 3 pounds. It has Windows 10 and has a pogo keyboard. You can use the keyboard attached to the tablet like a laptop – or you can remove the tablet from the laptop and hold just the tablet using the screen as a touchscreen. It has a large 11.6” screen, 16:0 aspect ratio and 1366 x 768 resolutions (IPS). The Flexx 11A includes USB 2.0, microUSB 2.0, and microHDMI ports as well as a headphone jack. It has front and back cameras; music player; popular media formats; and up to eight hours battery run time.
The Nextbook Flexx 11A is perfect for all family members. I love the fact that I am able log into wordpress and work on my blog, use Microsoft word to type up documents and use Facebook to work my blog’s Facebook page. Using the Flexx 11A, I was able to work from home, while waiting in the car line at my son’s school and while using WiFi at local coffeeshops.
As a family, we have enjoyed using Flexx 11A as a tablet to listen to music and watch shows and movies on Hulu & Netflix. My kids are still too young to use social media and play many games but as they get older, this tablet will allow them to do this. We went on a two hour roundtrip roadtrip and the Flexx 11A kept my kiddos occupied as they watched a movie using just the tablet screen.
The Nextbook Flexx 11A has easy access to the Windows Store where you can download free apps and paid apps. Windows Store gives access to countless apps including music, movies, TV shows, books, games, and reference and educational materials. And if you are traveling with your tablet, the Windows Store can provide access to current and Microsoft legacy business apps, including the popular Microsoft Office suite of applications. It comes with 64GB of internal memory and you can add another 64GB with its microSD card slot so there is plenty of memory available.
We love this tablet. We will get a lot of use out of this tablet both at home and while on roadtrips. If you have tried the Nextbook Flexx 11A, leave a comment and let us know what you thought!
