Lenovo Miix 2 8
13 March 2014
Summary: With its attractive, compact design and sub-£300 price tag the Miix 2 8 is one of the new Windows tablets that provides a more affordable alternative to the Microsoft Surface. It can't go head-to-head with the iPad and Android tablets in terms of apps, but the Miix 2 8 may well appeal to Windows users who want a pocket-size tablet that will also allow them to view their Office documents when they're out and about.
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: The 8in form factor for Windows 8 tablets is proving a popular one. We can see why, as this screen size is big enough to use Windows comfortably, while still making the tablet portable enough to carry around all day. The Miix 2 8 is another 8-inch tablet running the full version of Windows 8.1. The Miix 2 8 uses a quad-core 1.3GHz Intel Atom Z3740 processor, and is no slouch.
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
Excerpt: Lenovo may have just announced its Android-powered Yoga tablets , but the company is also about to launch a new addition to its Windows 8 tablet family, the Miix 8. On show at the Gadget Show Live in London, we went down to get a hands on impression. The 8in tablet runs the full 32-bit version of Windows 8.1 and is powered by one of Intel’s brand new Bay Trail Atom processors, the quad-core 1.3GHz Atom Z3740.
Summary: Miix 8 lider av samma problem som alla andra Windows 8-maskiner och av samma problem som andra åttatumsplattor med systemet. Men det betyder inte att hantverket bakom är dåligt för den sakens skull.
Pros: Office inkluderat Bra batteritid Hyfsat prestanda
Cons: Windows 8 Adapter krävs för USB Ingen videoutgång
