Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx review: a decent Windows 8 tablet, but not Lenovo's best
8 April 2013
Summary: The moniker Lynx sounds a bit ferocious, but Lenovo's newest IdeaTab is hardly that. It's a reliable performer with a bright IPS display, and its price tag is reasonable, but the Lynx isn't the best-designed, longest-lasting or most feature-rich low-powered hybrid. For that, you don't even have to look outside Lenovo's wheelhouse: the ThinkPad Tablet 2's long battery life and comfortable keyboard make it our reigning favorite.
Pros: Solid performance, Bright IPS display
Cons: Uncomfortable keyboard deck, No rear camera, Shorter battery life than the competition
Summary: The Lenovo IdeaPad Lynx is not really as cost effective as some of the lower-end Intel Atom Windows 8 tablets on the market, but for just a few hundred dollars more other tablets offer way more in terms of performance and build quality. Users who are looking for a Windows 8 tablet that is geared at productivity will find the Lenovo IdeaPad Lynx wanting.
Conclusion: The Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx offers all the things we like about Intel Atom Windows 8 tablets: long battery life, silent operation, long standby and a thin and light design. But its looks detract from an otherwise solid experience, and I fear that it may not get a long look from buyers when more visually appealing tablets beckon.
Pros: Thin and light, long battery life, optional keyboard dock doubles battery life.
Cons: Not a gorgeous design, keyboard dock could have more ports.
Conclusion: The Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx is a decidedly middle of the road tablet: slow performance, decent battery life, so-so screen. The design won’t win any awards, but we do like that a keyboard dock with extra ports is available. It’s not the best Atom-based tablet we’ve tested — that honor goes to the ThinkPad Tablet 2 over on the business side – and it’s more expensive than the runners up by $50. The bigger display offers more drawbacks than benefits, in the end.
Pros: Lightweight and thin, Includes USB dongle, Good battery life
Cons: Build quality doesn't feel sturdy, Widescreen aspect ratio throws off balance, Few ports, Narrow viewing angles, Windows 8 not a good tablet OS
Excerpt: Lenovo makes a wide range of tablets running both Windows 8 and Windows RT, as well as some cheaper Android tablets too. However, the new Lynx is a top-of-the-range Windows 8 model that focuses on stylish design and entertainment features.
Summary: Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx è un tablet con sistema operativo Windows 8, display da 11,6 pollici, risoluzione HD, processore dual core Intel Atom Z2760, 2 GB di RAM, 32 o 64 GB di memoria interna e dock tastiera opzionale
