Summary: I got this a couple of months ago, with 128Gb of storage, and it has massively exceeded my expectations. I was really just looking for a portable tablet that might also let me run a bit of desktop software in a pinch but the ThinkPad 8 (TP8) is good enough to be the only PC many people would need.
Summary: This is the ONLY 8" windows tablet with 1920x1200 resolution ! All others 8" windows tablets only have 1200x800 resolutions which is really lame/weak when you can see the pixels on the screen! This tablet with 1920x1200 resolutions is even sharper than your 22" desktop monitor! I just checked my 22" desktop monitor and it only has 1680x1050 resolutions.
Summary: This product was in "pre-order" mode at Amazon for too long, so I ended up getting it directly from Microsoft. This isn't a verified purchase. I wanted a media device to replace my (well loved, much used) Kindle 8.9 HD, but with a modern Windows environment that would synch to my laptop and cell phone. Kindles are excellent, but limited.

Summary: got this tablet a while ago, i have to said its FANTASTIC!!!! bought the 128GB SSD version, and it FAST, love the Atom Z3770 QUAD CORE , much better than the Z3740. I love how Lenovo Included the Thinkpad 8 Cover that came with the Tablet. They Also include a FULL version of OFFICE, which is a nice DEALS. Everything is Perfect.

Summary: This tablet is Great, it FAST, came with 128GB SSD, and a super High Res 1920 x 1200 IPS Screen The Built Quality is Great, if you own any of the Thinkpad lines, you should know its build quality. The Screen is Super Crips and Clear, the Intel Z3770 is FAST, much FASTER than my OLD Dell Venue 8 Pro which has Z3740. NO Complains what so ever ...!!
Too much of a compromise, but may still be the ideal choice for some

Summary: I got a Thinkpad 8 to use as my general travel device to cut down the bulk and weight in my carry-on. My thinking was that this would be a device I could use casually for play from the couch, as well as (reasonably) productively when not in my primary work locations. However, this turned out to be a pretty crippling compromise.
Summary: I have been using a Toshiba Encore for months as my primary computer, using a Y cable with power and a dock. These Bay Trail machines are very capable devices. However at the writing of this review, the TP8 has been out for nearly 5 months, and Lenovo cant even deliver them. Now that the Encore is $205 with prime shipping, it makes the TP8 even more pointless.
