I would strongly recommend getting a Surface ( if you can).
I bought an Asus T100 for 130 GBP second hand 18 months ago. I STILL haven't found anything that replaces it. It plays back 4k videos flawlessly, has 10hr battery life, a very active user community, can video edit at a push & has USB recharging. I see no reason to 'upgrade' to a Surface...nice though they may be. They have shorter battery life, all the DPI scaling issues of a high resolution Windows device & require a proprietary power adapter.
In short...some of us don't need to spend $500+ to get everything we need in a computing device. I also enjoy not having to worry about whether my devices get lost or stolen
I haven't been happy with windows' performance at 2GB.
Got the Nextbook Flex 11 and literally can't get my hands off it. I have an Android Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, 2 Acer laptops and a lenovo laptop and 2 Samsung phones and I find myself using this the most, it's just perfect and very solid. The keyboard is also very well built. If only Wimdows was as good and smooth as Android, then it would be really excelllent. Don't get fooled by the major brands like Acer, Lenovo, Dell etc... this has the same for cheaper and you won't feel guilty for having spent good money for nothing.
