For less than $200, this tablet comes with a keyboard. Is it too good to be true?

Partially. Take a closer look at the Nextbook Ares 11 by clicking through the slideshow and read the full review for all of the details.

The Ares 11 can be used as a standalone tablet, but it works best with the keyboard.

The keyboard easily comes off by pressing the button at the top.

The back of the tablet features a smooth matte finish that almost feels like suede.

The tablet houses many ports, and the keyboard adds two more USB 2.0 ports to the list.

Though the keyboard is a great addition, its functionality leaves a lot to be desired.

The keys don't light up, but the blue plastic around them does.

When open like a laptop, the Ares 11 keyboard slightly lifts. This creates a comfortable typing angle.

When closed, the Ares 11 is a bit chunky, like a netbook. Remember those?

The blue accents give the Ares 11 a fashionable look.

The power, home and volume buttons are located on the back of the top edge of the laptop.

The keyboard is a bit crammed, but typing was still easy. The addition of the touchpad is a nice...touch.
