I love it. I have three other Lenovo products

Summary: In general, I love it. I have three other Lenovo products, and every one of them is great. However, I had it for two days, and the screen turned off and wouldn't turn back on. I called Lenovo, and they are fixing it under warranty, very happy about that, but unhappy that it quit so soon after getting it.
Summary: This is one of the lightest and sleekest of the eight-inch Windows tablets. You get a full operating system with millions of apps (desktop apps + modern apps), in a touch-friendly and fluid operating system (Windows 8.1). Plus it comes with the full suite of Office for free. I highly recommend the 64GB version as 32GB will leave you thinner on space than you'd think. The only thing to make this tablet better would be a full-hd resolution (though the 1280x800 isn't bad.
Summary: This is a replacement for a Miix 2 8 8-inch 32GB. The original device developed a crack in the screen that spidered across the entire device. The touch interface died soon afterwards. 32GB is inadequate for Windows 8. There is little flexibility regarding the download location for apps. So, I quickly filled the 32GB available and couldn't redirect to the memory card. The device is well constructed. Though, I'd prefer more rigidity.
Summary: All I do with this is light surfing/music listening. I'm Windows centric so Android is a pain in the ass. External printer support up and running in 5 mins. Android? (Takes a paid utility) Added a 64G SD, (slot is twitchey) enough room for music, portable apps etc. BT mouse added no issues and I like a mouse input better than poke. Like the full version of windows included would be better if it was x64, next time. Remember its a tablet small light easy to carry.
A good machine, hobbled only by the lack of native Windows 8 apps.

Summary: The tablet itself is good. I would say great, but the battery life is a little less that expected (and considerably less that promised). If you can live in the world of Windows 8, the tablet is a dream to work with. If however you have to spend a lot of time on the desktop with legacy apps, well.... the experience is less that ideal and really needs a stylus to work for any length of time because everything is so small when scaled down to the 8" inch screen.
Summary: I hate to rate something low because I have issues, on the chance it's just my specific one that had problems, when overall it was a nice little unit so rating a 4. If I didn't have the issues I would have rated it a 5 The screen is bright and vivid, sharper then the ASUS Vivo Tab Note 8 which I replace this with. (Other then that, I preferred the Asus, for subjective reasons I won't go into as it is things you can compare.
