Not a bad little PC/laptop/tablet. Bought two of them a few weeks ago for the same $89. Obviously low-end, but the fact that it's a "real" Windows PC for under $100 is amazing. I gave one to my son to take to college classes for notetaking. Since the whole campus is covered in WiFi, anything he types into OneNote immediately syncs to the expensive, full-sized laptop in the dorm room he does his real work on, and if he drops/breaks/loses this, we're out $89.

I own the Nextbook Flex 8.9 (paid $70 a few months ago), and I gotta say, that size keyboard and touchpad is not fun to use. If it's going to be used for typing, it kind of defeats the purpose. I'd go with a 10 or 11.6 inch model at a minimum. Cheap models can be had at similar prices. Refurb 11.6's only cost $120-150.
I do think it's funny he owns a laptop, but needs another one to take to class? Wasn't that the point of getting a laptop in the first place...?

This tablet is far lighter than most notebooks, even the lighter ~3lbs Airs, Yoga 700s, etc.
Pretty much the only notebook that is near this weight range is the smallest LG Gram.
Add notebooks (paper), books, writing supplies, lunch, etc into a backpack and you'd understand why having an ultralight tabet with a good keyboard for fast typing is a great 2nd device to have.
Keyboard is one of the better ones I've tried. Faster than the Surface's, reliable, non-flexing. The angle the tablet is docked is decent, leaning backwards enough to allow the screen to be easily viewed.

The Keyboard is an extra. Great deal. Looks like I'll wait for the Nextbook Flex 8.9 for lower price.
