Lenovo Miix 2 8 Review
7 March 2014
Conclusion: I’ll give credit where credit is due: Lenovo has attempted to make a decent, low-cost 8-inch tablet that runs a full copy of Windows 8.1. The use of aluminum as part of the Miix 2 8’s slim design is great to see, and its overall size is quite comfortable, striking a great mix between portability and usability.
Conclusion: The Lenovo Miix 2 8 is an affordable Windows 8 tablet with good battery life and features. Just make sure you always have access to the Internet, as local storage is a little light on this tablet.
Pros: Compact. Over 8.5 hours of battery life. Affordable price. Includes Office Home & Student. Small text in desktop mode. Easy to hold and use.
Cons: Small SSD. Only 9 GB of storage free after initial setup. No docking keyboard option. USB Host requires dongle. No HDMI or DisplayPort.
Summary: The Miix 2 is a very capable tablet but not a tablet for everyone. It can be complicated or cumbersome for some folks but it is very powerful and versatile. If you need a simple and elegant device just to run apps and games, you might be better off with an iPad or an Android tablet.

Excerpt: Last week we showed you the Venue 8 Pro , Dell’s first foray into the 8-inch tablet world running Windows 8.1. This week, we have Lenovo’s answer: the Miix2 . Available at Amazon and costing $299 with 32GB of internal storage (64 GB optional available), these two devices have more in common than differences. Still, there are a few variances worth noting.
Excerpt: The Lenovo Miix 2, this 8" version, is a Windows tablet that reviews describe as a decent low-cost option for those who want to skip Android or the Apple iPad . It has an attractive and compact design according to Cliff Joseph of PC Advisor, and other reviewers agree including TechSpot's Time Schiesser who praised the use of aluminum as part of its slim design. This tablet isn’t all about looks, though.
Pros: Affordably priced, Runs the full version of Windows 8.1, Great looks and slim design
