Summary: Update to Win 8.1 made it impossible to charge when the keyboard is attached. Called Lenovo with this issue and they acknowledged it was a known issue and then asked me to pay 89.00 to downgrade back to Win 8. Until there is a fix for the issue I would not recommend purchasing if you are going to use the Lenovo keyboard with this item.
Pros: Awesome having a regular OS. Does everything I expect it to.
Cons: None that I can think of if you stay with Win 8 OS.
Great Tablet, but don't waste your money buying the Lenovo Keyboard
4 December 2013
Summary: I travel a lot and needed a substitute to a full size laptop. Something that also has a great battery life, so I could do work or watch a movie on an airplane, without worrying if the battery would die before I was done. I found the Lenovo Lynx tablet with the optional keyboard and was excited. I absolutely love the tablet. It is small, lightweight, and portable, with a nice size screen and an 8 hour battery life. It is exactly what I need.
Summary: I returned this device to newegg. There was strict condition that only return for replacement and no refund. I was expecting replacement. When that item reached to Newegg, they were sold out and Issued me full refund Which is not fair. Newegg has promised me return for replacement and when they were sold out and they also increase price, They issued me refund. This is not fair on newegg part.
Pros: I bought from Newegg but refurbished version and this tablet is according to price it is affordable and it is not Windows RT but full Windows 8. Full operating system with compatibility for all programs.
Cons: No keyboard dock included- That is additional cost and Keyboard dock is costly. I had problem with the device- video playing was not smooth. There was time lag in video playing. If you touch browser or word document, onscreen keyboard will not pop up automatically like android device. You need to touch keyboard Icon.
Pros: Decent pricing - Beats the surface with regards to features and Windows supports.
Cons: Battery went poof after 3 months of ownership - would now only hold charge for 15 minutes - Looks like there is some serious design with the power system of this tablet. The power system is very picky on which Micro USB charging cable.
Summary: Will never complain with the price I paid. Its nice to see these available at this price point.
Pros: Finally an affordable full Win tab. Boots quick. 30gb of the ssd are used. Bright clear screen, descent resolution Runs MTGO which is mainly why I wanted this. Its slow through the game but serves the purpose. If I needed speed I know I need to spend the money for something faster. The little Atom that could has 4 threads and runs cool 28 -37 (yes it runs core temp). Haven't done any benchmarks but I will and report back. Keyboard responds well.
Cons: Screen resolution and screen size causes compatibility issues with some web sites in landscape mode. Luckily you can unlock the screen and go portrait. Keyboard doesn't have F functions? No Ctrl in the &123 side of the keyboard? These may be settings im missing but not from what I can tell.
Summary: This is a tablet folks. Don't be expecting to game on an atom. Any old games that could run are probably so old that they'll have compatibility issues with Windows 8. This is essentially a more productive version of an iPad. Great for web browsing and general productivity with the ability to do plenty more with the full windows 8 installed.
Cons: -on screen keyboard sucks. but thats what you should be expecting
Summary: all in all glad i got it and will update the review as time goes on, also i am writing this on it right now
Pros: Lite, very easy to hold for extended periods.
Cons: only 1 con and therefore 1egg off, the build quality is great on most of the tablet, but the small speaker grills on the sides weren't on right and the fabric was actually sticking out the sides, i had to cut the part sticking out off, quality controll was off that day i guess, not enough to send it back tho
Summary: I own Ipad & Android tablets so I wanted to see how a Windows 8 tablet worked compared to the other two. With the 4th discounts this was the perfect buy. To me it took a bit to get used to the windows format it did not seem as intuitive as Android/IPAD but once I used it for a while I got it. If you have other windows devices at home it seamlessly works with them. Printing is a breeze.
Pros: -Long battery life
Cons: -Microsoft App-store... Not many apps out there
Summary: If you're looking for a gaming rig or any other type of strenuous application; a tablet most likely isn't what you want. If you want to always have a computer at your side without lugging much weight/space around this is a great tablet. It won't handle even moderate desktop gaming well. But since it runs windows 8 I get the fun of apps and the utility of an operating system. My first day I installed Eclipse and now can happily code outdoors for hours at a time.
Pros: -Long battery life
Cons: -The back feels delicate, but you should be getting a case anyways.
