Is it any good?

32GB sounds too small for doing much

Depends on what you are looking to do. 1280x800 res/Atom Z3735F/2GB RAM/32GB eMMC is pretty standard for these low-end machines. It'll be fine as an email, facebook, youtube, netflix machine.

You can add a bit more storage using the microSD slot if needed.

You need real patience with this notebook, I find it too laggy for my taste.

$250 - 50 - 80 = $120

Can I also apply my points ($60 value) and expect to pay basically $60 for this 2-in-1 tablet?

50 is gift card for future use
80 is points for future use when you pay in full 250
and tax is base on 250, which is 32 (you use points or not, you still pay 32 tax)

Decent price with the Addons of the Giftcard and exyra points.
Same specs as the Asus t100 Laptops, Which once in awhile you can find for about $100-150.

These things are basically Coffee time killers.

I bought one at the source on clearance for $125 for my son. He uses it for travel on planes as its light- 2.5 lbs including the keyboard. Great for surfing the web, watching movies, MS office. Shuts down in 3 seconds and boots in 10 seconds.

It has a micro SD slot so you can store movies on that.

Also if you remove the keyboard you have a 10 inch tablet.

How well does it run office?

Did you load the full version on to it or use office online?

Office runs well, offline and online.

Anything remotely modern runs office well.

Same here. Bought Source refurb unit for myself to look at and dump GoPro footage when on vacation. No problems with unit. Not a speed demon for general purpose duty but portability and if it gets lost or stolen on vacation not going to feel too much pain.

It's not, plenty for tasks regular people use it for (email, browsing, basic editing, office...)

I have a (different) tablet with a z8350 and 4GB. I find it a tad slow for browsing (thanks advertising scumbags for taking more resources than the actual content).
It's excellent for reading pdfs or annotating, and a touchscreen is incredibly useful for interacting with files.
I'm only making an assumption on this tablet's performance based on the fact that I have a tablet with its next-gen processor. On my tablet, win10 eats up like 1.6GB of ram on its own.

I realize that I'm making an unfair comparison in terms of cost, power and formfactor but the latency in average interaction is definitely noticeable when you compare it to even a sandy bridge era laptop (2011 or so?).

These Z3735F devices need to be gone from the market. They are painful for anything more than 1 webpage at a time.

Walmart $40 stick is Z3735F. Lenovo stick is Z3735F.

Atom and 2gb or 4gb of ram is perfectly fine for general OS (Win10) navigation and use, and multi tab web browsing as long as you use Edge. General productivity works well too, Office 365,OneNote, and / or Libre Office, Netflix and YouTube work well, and even some old steam games run well. Steam in home streaming from a desktop works flawlessly. As long as you go in with tempered expectations, devices with these specs are great. I have a Lenovo yoga tablet 2 and an Asus Transformer Mini and they are both great for light home use, including light productivity. A $200 price point for this is just fine imo.

It's really tough at this price point. My cousin has this laptop? notebook? and I don' t think I could use it. My dad probably could.

I usually have at minimum 5 tabs open at a time, itunes or spotify, and it blows my mind that any laptop these days can't handle that with ease.

But, at this price point, I would say this would be a secondary or backup only. Like if you needed a beater for travel. It would be very difficult if this was my daily driver. I recently bought a chromebook and it's the same thing. I wouldn't want it as my primary, but to take it on trips and travel, it's totally acceptable.
