Review: Lenovo IdeaPad K1

23 August 2011
  • Excerpt: I paraphrase Andy Warhol when I say: Eventually, everyone will build their own tablet computer. Like the scourge of reality television, manufacturers far and wide are trying to muscle into the tablet world, each producing a machine about the same as the last.
  • Pros: Available in black, white or red. Largely thoughtful list of preinstalled apps will be of value to novice users. Solid performance. Textured back provides a nice grip; easy to hang on to. Relatively inexpensive at just 0 for 32 GB.
  • Cons: Navigation can be difficult. Just shy of six hours of battery life under full load. Volume buttons are tough to reach.
