Is $99 for this tablet/keyboard a good deal?

For just one to carry around to use in hot spots for a quick web check and what not.

Seems like it.

Well specs wise it's like the original iPad mini but only $99 so why not? For the uses you named it'll do just fine.

For an Android tablet you're going to want at least 2GB of RAM and a 2GHz processor. Ever since Jelly Bean Android has been quite resource-intensive. My last phone had better specs than that tablet and it was sluggish as f***.

Yeah I was gonna say, that tablet isn't going to run modern android terribly well. My nexus 7 with a Tegra 3 (1.5ghz quad core) feels really choppy compared to my 3 year old iPhone.

It says quad core in the name but if you look at the specs it's just a 1ghz single core. Couple that with up to date android and it's going to be rough, to put it lightly.

If it's anything like most tablets I've seen in that price range, it's not worth buying.

I can't comment on the performance, but the screens on these low-end tablets typically have awful viewing angles. I recently quit my retail job, and we had one from an off brand that you needed to tilt the screen to see it clearly. I doubt this one would be that bad, but I can't imagine it's very good.

If at all possible, save for just a little longer and move up to the $200 bracket and pick up something like the Nexus.

In fact, here's a much, much better tablet for $130:

It's probably a hunk of junk that isn't worth buying. My family bought a tablet like that and it's way too slow to be of any use running anything. Even the internet browser lags up every time a webpage is visited and the viewing angle sucks. Just spend the money on a faster more powerful tablet or don't bother.
