Vulcan Challenger II 4 Core 8" Windows tablet with keyboard - Frys - $57 with promo code/free ship

Don't expect much for this price. The model appears to be unique to Frys, but similar tablets were sold elsewhere (like Walmart) with less storage and mixed reviews. You need to be on their mailing list to get this deal (if you're not, sign up here [frys.com] for the next one). The keyboard looks like a keyboard case, not an attached keyboard.

2GB memory
32GB eMMC storage [howtogeek.com]
4 Core Atom Z3735G CPU
1280x800 IPS screen

Manufacturer's site [vulcanelectronics.com] for the less capable model (not this one)

This, http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Ato...tom-Z3735F, says the F CPU variant found in this tablet only supports up to 1GB RAM, but this tablet has 2GB.

The Fry's description and the OP say it has the G version

Does it come with the detachable keyboard in picture? Or is the keyboard separate purchase?

Normally they do until stock runs out for shipping, then in-store only. When I posted the deal this morning it was available to ship.

Yes, the keyboard is included, as noted in the thread title and the OP.

Will ship for free (just placed my order). In CA it comes out to around $67 due to $5 recycling fee and tax. Might be good for taking on trips for movies/internet browsing.

I just received mine. This is a solid piece of hardware. The tablet and keyboard seem like they will put up with a lot. They are pretty weighty considering the size. Windows 10 seems rather snappier than some other Windows 10 tablets I have played with.

The only issues I have with it are the screen. It is only plastic and scratches easily. Mine is slightly warped around the corners and was scratched by the keyboard. Do not store with keyboard, or store facing away from the keyboard, or place a microfiber rag between the tablet and the keyboard.

Edit: The screen does not seem to scratch from the keyboard. The keyboard is made of plastic and is less likely to scratch the screen. The scratches I am seeing, I am guessing, came from the build process of the tablet (which were minor). It looks like it may scratch easily, but I have not made any new scratches. Sorry to have jumped to conclusions here.
