Summary: The Lenovo Miix 10 is sadly a mixed bag. While we love the physical keyboard case, some of its quirks let the whole device down and it does fall short when being used as a tablet: there just aren't enough finger friendly Windows 8 apps at the moment. There's also a few niggles we felt with the keyboard case too: similarly to Lenovo's Yoga range, the actual keyboard is very annoying to feel when you fold back the keyboard, and it doesn't fold back properly either.
Excerpt: The Miix 10 is an Intel Atom Window 8 tablet that comes in at $479, but our hands on time with the unit was less than stellar. From build quality to pricing point it was hard to get excited about the Lenovo Miix 10. Read on to learn more about Lenovo’s latest Windows 8 consumer tablet.
Summary: Keyboard-tablet. The little Miix 10 wants to be a tool for devoted Windows users: the advantages of a tablet's mobility but without having to rethink operations. The manufacturer adds a keyboard-case in the box so that typing emails is normal routine. The competition cannot offer this for less than 500 Euros (~$666).
Pros: Very bright, color-rich IPS screen, Good battery runtimes, Expandable storage capacity, Viable keyboard, Low weight, Lenovo includes the keyboard as standard in the box. The key's typing feel lacks feedback but is satisfactory otherwise. A bright screen that is only marginally dimmed in battery mode.
Cons: TFT's inclination angle too steep when on keyboard dock, Keyboard dock obstructs micro USB, Very few interfaces, Poor computing performance, No gaming performance, The TFT's inclination angle is too steep and we would like to be able to adjust it. A micro-USB port on the keyboard dock would be ideal.
Excerpt: Lenovo Miix is a 10.1-inch tablet running Windows 8. It has a 1366x768 pixels resolution display, 2GB of RAM, Intel Atom dual-core processor, 64GB of internal memory, 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Conclusion: The Lenovo Miix is more than capable of serving the needs of some people, but it's a definite niche. If the question is should the average person get this instead of an Ultrabook (even a low-end one that comes in at a similar price point), then the answer is no. The Asus VivoBook S200 is almost certainly a better bet.
