An inexpensive Windows 2-in-1 -- a laptop that can be also used as a tablet -- can be the ideal purchase for the kids. It can also be a good way to get familiar with the latest version of Windows without losing the familiar version on the main PC.
Walmart has such a laptop for just $179. The Nextbook 10.1 doesn't have powerful hardware inside but the specifications aren't bad for the price. It features a quad-core Intel Atom processor, 1GB of memory, 32GB of storage, and a 10.1-inch display (1280 x 800). It has a claimed battery life of 10 hours, which is quite good for this price range.
The Nextbook comes with a keyboard dock that allows using the device as a Windows laptop. The display detaches converting it to a tablet.
The Nextbook 10.1 ships with Windows 8.1 but with the free upgrade to Windows 10 it's an even better value. The 2-in-1 format allows exploring all forms that Windows supports.
You can get the Nextbook 10.1 online at Walmart and it's also sold in stores for the same price.
