For the latest of our festive giveaways, we're bringing together fun and productivity, offering you the chance to win a Windows 10 gaming tablet and a handy mobile keyboard!
The Linx Vision is an 8-inch tablet with a twist: it comes with a distinctive dual-analog Controller System, including ABXY action buttons, D-pad, trigger controls, and vibration feedback - all of which are compatible with Windows Store gaming titles, games streamed to tablet from your Xbox One, and even Steam gaming on Windows 10.
Linx promises that the tablet "delivers an elite standard in design and craft to create the most immersive gaming experience with an intuitive controller system that is comfortable to use over long sessions."
The Linx Vision has a polycarbonate body with aluminum alloy chassis inlays; check out some of its key specs:
- 8-inch LCD touchscreen with HD (1280x800px) resolution
- Quad-core Intel Atom x5-Z8300 (Cherry Trail) processor
- 2GB RAM
- 32GB storage (plus microSD card slot)
- 2MP front and rear cameras
- WiFi 802.11ac
- microHDMI 1.4 port
- microUSB port
- Pogo pin
- 3.5mm headphone jack
- 6000mAh battery
- 214.6 x 134.7 x 9.9mm

But alas, we don't always have time for fun and games. So for those occasions when playtime must end, and you need to be productive on the move with your new Windows 10 tablet - perhaps to write a long email, draft a Word document or edit an Excel spreadsheet - we've got you covered.
In addition to the Linx Vision gaming tablet, the winner will also get a Microsoft Universal Mobile Keyboard! It's designed to work with tablets running not just Windows, but also Android and iOS. You can pair it with up to three devices running three different operating systems via Bluetooth, and easily switch between them.
The keyboard cover includes an integrated stand for your device too, and you can even detach the cover, putting a bit of distance between the keyboard and your screen, for a more comfortable experience as you type. Close the cover, and the keyboard automatically switches off to save power.
The Universal Mobile Keyboard makes productivity much easier than having to type at length on a touchscreen!
Be aware that the prizes we're giving away are UK-spec. That means you'll get a UK power adaptor with the tablet and a UK-layout QWERTY keyboard... but don't worry - the prizes may be UK-spec, but our giveaway is open to all of our readers across the globe.
