This is really a 2-in-1 because it's a tablet that comes with a detachable keyboard, and a year's subscription to Microsoft Office, and it runs the Windows operating system. (The version we tried was running Windows 8.1, but it will be upgradeable, and by the time you purchase one, it should come with Windows 10 installed.)
The tablet comes loaded with gaming software (including two-player versions of the Kurio Motion games) and it has parental controls, but it uses the Windows Family Safety program that allows parents to control time of use and Internet and app access.
As a tablet it has an 8.9 inch touchscreen, and impressive 1280 x 800 resolution, 1 gig or RAM and 32 gigs of storage, which is expandable, and it all runs on the Intel Atom Quad core processor. The set up is easy and intuitive, though Kurio provides a comprehensive instruction booklet.
Clearly, this isn't a toy, but it will be ideal for late elementary and middle school students. The design is handsome and sturdy, and the keyboard is easy to handle. The keyboard is definitely on the small side, but that's good for young hands. This is also a great value for families who want to provide an appropriate level of technology that's fun and practical. Best of all, it's kid tech that acts like big tech, and that can be very important to kids.
The set-up guide is comprehensive and extremely useful.
