Reviews for the Lenovo Miix 2 8

86% Review Lenovo Miix 2 8 Tablet | Notebookcheck
Windows for your handbag. Is there a small, 8-inch tablet complete with Windows 8.1, a solid IPS panel and a full version of Microsoft Office 2013 Home & Students for 300 Euros (~$410), you ask? Yes! The Lenovo Miix 2 fulfills all these wishes and then some. We tested it extensively to see what it can do.
80% Lenovo Miix 2 review Is this the Windows 8.1 tablet we've all been waiting for?
Source: Techradar English
For a small tablet that's easy to hold and carry around, the Lenovo Miix 2 8 doesn't get much wrong. It's certainly one of the nicer 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet's we've tried. For simple tasks and running full-screen apps, the Lenovo Miix 2 8 performs well. But you'll need to keep your expectations in check, as the Miix 2 8 struggles under more intensive workloads.

However the Miix 2 8 is a tablet that I simply cannot recommend. Touchscreen issues, most prevalent when using the keyboard, make this device incredibly frustrating to use (see our video review in the first page, around the 6:10 mark). The performance from Intel’s Atom Z3740 SoC is generally quite decent, but having to purposefully type slowly, or wait extended periods of time just to have the touchscreen respond, is simply unacceptable on any device at any price point. Yes, there is a chance that a software update could address the touchscreen issues, and I will update this review accordingly if and when any issues are fixed. I would have easily scored Lenovo's Windows tablet an 80, but the fact that there are significant issues to deal with, combined with the display’s relatively low resolution, makes the Miix 2 8 a low-cost 8-inch tablet that you should avoid.

80% Lenovo Miix 2 8 review: A fast tablet that's short on features
Source: PC World English
The Miix 2 8 is an excellent tablet, but this market is expanding rapidly and details matter. For me, the more dimmable screen on Dell’s Venue Pro 8 makes it a better nighttime reader. For others, the micro HDMI port on Toshiba’s Encore 8 , or the active Wacom digitizer in the Asus VivoTab Note 8, will be must-have features. The Miix 2 8’s great performance isn’t enough for it to rise above comparably priced competitors with more features.

70% Lenovo Miix 2 8 review: a Windows tablet that provides a more affordable alternative to the Microsoft Surface
Source: PC Advisor English
With its attractive, compact design and sub-£300 price tag the Miix 2 8 is one of the new Windows tablets that provides a more affordable alternative to the Microsoft Surface. It can't go head-to-head with the iPad and Android tablets in terms of apps, but the Miix 2 8 may well appeal to Windows users who want a pocket-size tablet that will also allow them to view their Office documents when they're out and about.

85% Lenovo Miix 2 8: First impressions (hands on)
Source: Zdnet.com English
Lenovo provides a lot of value with the Miix 2 8 for $299. The Bay Trail processor provides decent performance, while the 8-inch display makes the highly portable form a reality. That processor means the Miix 2 8 runs full Windows 8.1, and the inclusion of Microsoft Office makes it an even better value.

That said, if you want to keep your expenditure to (just) under $300 (before accessories), the Miix 2 8 makes a strong argument for buying a Windows 8 tablet instead of a cheap laptop, Chromebook, first-generation Apple iPad mini, or Android tablet. It has a higher resolution screen than most of those devices. The Miix 2 8 can also access the full Windows-compatible app library and will work with the same browser plug-ins as your home laptop. The skimpy leftover free storage concerns us quite a bit, so the Miix 2 8 just misses taking over as our latest Editors' Choice Windows 8 tablet, but it should be on your short list if you have access to a 64GB microSD card to shove into the Miix 2 8's expansion slot.

The $299 Lenovo Miix 2 is the best entry yet in the still-young market of smaller Windows 8 tablets. The slate's Bay Trail processor and strong battery provides plenty of pep and endurance for work and play. Plus, its bright, lucid screen outshines the competition.

The Lenovo Miix 2 is an 8-inch Windows 8.1-powered tablet that provides good performance in a small, lightweight size. The best part about it is that it runs the full version of Windows 8.1, not the lightweight, RT version.

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.

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

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

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).

Z3740: Soc with an integrated quad core Atom processor clocked at up to 1.86 GHz (Turbo), an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a dual channel LPDDR3-1067 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

8.0": This is a very small format, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

0.34 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

Lenovo reviews

77.89%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
