Don’t call this a review — it’s a public service announcement. iRulu touts its $199 Walknbook 2 (W20) detachable 2-in-1 as a budget productivity machine, but it’s more likely to produce a headache than your next quarterly report. Its Atom processor can’t handle multitasking, and its keyboard and touchpad are among the worst I’ve ever used. The detachable display is surprisingly colorful for a 2-in-1 that’s this cheap, but its weak performance and awful usability make it impossible to recommend.
Nearly everything about the Walknbook’s design gives me pause. While I appreciated the bright-green tablet (it also comes in orange), it looks like it’s from another era. It has a giant, black bezel around the 10.1-inch screen, with a Windows logo on the bottom (the kind you saw on Windows 8 tablets). The black back is an extreme fingerprint magnet. It features the iRulu logo in gray, as well as prominent Intel and Windows logos and a lot of ugly text that other companies go out of their way to hide, like the model number and wattage details.
