    The school has suggested a device - Mecer Fundi 2-1. can be used as a laptop and tablet. I can get for R4 700., including an active stylus in the box. Only 1 year warranty.
    if I were you, I'd take a look for Dell or HP laptops-tablets

    A bit late for that now!
    Anyways the Mecer was sent in for a warranty repair the week of the lockdown. The one hinge is faulty. No repairs have been effected as the supplier is closed. The race to get it back in time for school will be the challenge.

    A tablet with a hinge?

    That is a notebook not a tablet. Even Mercer refers to it as a notebook.

    Lets hope you get it fixed quickly - the kids are really going to need it when they get back to school.
