70% Lenovo Miix review: a Windows tablet that works well as an entertainment device
Source: PC Advisor English
Its modest specification means that the Miix 10 isn't as powerful as rival tablets such as the Microsoft Surface. However, it's reasonably priced and its attractive IPS screen ensures that it works well as an entertainment tablet while still having enough power to handle basic email and Microsoft Office documents.

Source: PC World English
Lenovo's Miix 10 is a solid hybrid: It's comfortable and responsive, and the optional keyboard cover is a cut above. But so is the price tag for a generation-old processor.

The Transformer Book is not without flaws, however. It feels like a $399 device, for starters—especially its stiff keyboard dock and flakey touchpad. But it’s hard to argue with the battery life and performance for the price. Lenovo makes a great keyboard, but it’s not $180 better.

70% Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 10 Tablet
Source: PC Mag English
The Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 10 Tablet is a solid entry into the ever expanding category of Atom-powered tablet PCs. While the overall performance and battery life don't deviate too drastically from the average, it does have the downside of not being sold with any sort of keyboard, an accessory offered bundled with or sold alongside most competitors. With or without a keyboard, the Lenovo Miix 10 is a thoroughly middle-of-the-road offering, without much to distinguish it from its peers. The current Editors' Choice for Windows Tablets remains the Microsoft Surface Pro.

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.

Yet we remain enamoured with Lenovo's Miix 10. It’s a capable performer for work, and for sitting back on the sofa and keeping an eye on Twitter feeds, and it's light enough for both purposes. It falls short of an award, but by a margin slimmer than its slender frame.

Lenovo IdeaTab Miix 10 64GB

The Lenovo Pad Miix is a Windows 8 tablet with a keyboard that is remarkably slim and light. As it is less than 1 cm thick and weighs 0.6 kg, it is an extremely ultra portable Windows 8 device that is perfect for light tasks. With a understated black bezel and silver back, it looks nice enough and it certainly feels well built. Its 10.1 inch screen features a 1366 x 768 resolution, which is unusual for a tablet and makes it extremely tall in portrait orientation. It comes with an aesthetically minimalist case that houses the keyboard and folds out into a dock that holds the tablet in place with magnets. The keyboard does not feature a touchpad and since the only micro USB port is used to dock it - the only way to connect a mouse is through Bluetooth. The power of this device comes from the Intel Atom Z2760 processor, a 1.8GHz dual-core chip. This is decent for most Android tablets, but in Windows 8 there will be instances of lag during multitasking.

A 64GB SSD hard drive allows the Lenovo IdeaPad Miix to wake up extremely fast, and the microSD slot allows you to add more storage if necessary. The battery life is decent enough when compared to the competition, lasting about 10 hours of light use. At the end of the day, the Lenovo IdeaPad Miix is a nifty little device but the lack of a second USB port or touchpad and the price point just make it a bad choice.

83% Review Lenovo IdeaTab Miix 10 64 GB Tablet | Notebookcheck
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).

Lenovo's Miix 10 is a mid-priced full Windows tablet. It has a nice size and offers a slightly better screen than most in this price range but there just isn't enough to really distinguish it from a number of other offerings. In fact, the best feature is the fact that it has a dedicated power connector that means it charges much faster than most tablets that use USB charging.

Lenovo Miix 2 11

The Lenovo Miix 2 11 was created to compete with the Asus Transformer Book T100TA, Samsung Ativ Smart PC XE500T1C and any other similar class laptop tablet hybrids. While it is wonderful to have PC-like experience in table form, there are just too many shortcomings to really be useful as PC. Made from an all plastic construction, the Lenovo Miix 2 11 still maintains a good design profile while sporting an 11.6 inch FHD display.

The tablet attaches to the keyboard using a magnetic connector and can be flipped to allow touchscreen access only. The hardware includes an Intel Core i3-4012Y (1.5 GHz) or Intel i5-4202Y (1.6 GHz); depending on the variant, up to 8 GB DDR3L on-board RAM and an integrated Intel HD graphic chip. Besides this, the Lenovo Miix 2 11 also packs a 256 GB SSD. MicroSD cards up to 2 TB are supported.

The sound quality is good with integrated JBL stereo speakers with subwoofer. The weight is kept at 800 g without battery which makes the device ultra-portable. The battery life of around 6 hours of WiFi browsing is good. Any other usage besides this will pose a challenge as the device is just not powerful enough.

67% Lenovo Miix 2 11in review
Source: PC Pro English
On paper, with plenty of hardware packed in, a decent display and battery life, plus a bundled keyboard dock, the Lenovo Miix 2 11in looks pretty good value. The Core i5 version we tested comes in at £656 inc VAT including the keyboard dock and 256GB storage; the Core i5 Surface Pro 3 with 256GB costs £1,109 - nearly double - and that's without the keyboard, which costs another £110. The problem for the Miix 2 11in is that its keyboard dock is so poorly designed that it's hardly worth having – and that undermines a lot of what makes the Miix 2 such an attractive proposition in the first place. It's so close to being a good product, but we can't recommend it.

If you stick with basic tasks like productivity, web browsing and Windows Store apps, then the Lenovo Miix 2 (11") offers a quality user experience. But for anything more advanced, it's bedlam. The Miix 2 will have trouble competing with rivals like the Asus Transformer Book T100TA, which offers much better performance per pound spent.

The superior Surface Pro? With its IdeaPad Miix 700, Lenovo aims to win potential Surface Pro 4 buyers. A keyboard dock and ActivePen are included and do not have to be purchased separately. The other equipment is also appropriate: A bright, high-contrast screen and fast SSD are on board. The installed Core M processor ensures noiseless operation. The entire bundle is even cheaper than a comparable Surface Pro 4 package.

I have mixed feelings about the Miix 700. Lenovo has done a good job of innovating on detachable design with this device's attractive metal body and leather-backed keyboard that includes a sleek watchband hinge. We also like the vibrant, 12-inch touch screen with active stylus support.

Lenovo reviews


These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

PowerVR SGX545:

Integrated GPU in a number of Intel Atom Clover Trail processors.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4200: Processor graphics card in some of the ULV Haswell CPUs with 20 EUs (GT2).

Intel HD Graphics 515: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on Core-m-CPUs of the Skylake generation (4,5 W TDP).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).

Z2760: Soc with integrated dual core Atom processor clocked at up to 1.8 GHz (only Turbo?), a PowerVR SGX 545 based GPU clocked at 533 MHz and a dual channel LPDDR2-800 memory controller.

Z3735F: SoC with an integrated quad-core Atom processor clocked up to 1.83 GHz, an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a single channel DDR3L-RS-1333 memory controller.

Intel Core i3:

4012Y: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz (no Turbo Boost). Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4200 and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

Intel Core m5:

6Y54: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for tablets and 2-in-1 notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 515 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.
