Summary: Everything seems to work and be just what I need - an inexpensive version of my Surface Pro 3 for international travel. The only downside is that the screen is sometimes not as responsive as I'd like. I've purchased a very small traveling mouse to help with that. I set it up with Microsoft Onedrive, so that I'll always have the files I absolutely need with me and any work I'll do will sync back to my Surface later, and access to everything else that won't fit on this...
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 the perfect daytime tablet. Apps are quick and responsive, it runs Windows 8.1 with a full desktop mode so you can run almost any desktop software available plus the battery life is very good. The problem is the screen brightness, it's set way too high even after going in to the settings and lowering it to 0. I've never experienced this with any other tablet I've owned or used before.
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.
