87% Review Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx K3011 Tablet | Notebookcheck
Bigger-screen alternative. Lenovo releases another Atom-powered tablet with Windows 8 OS - this time aimed squarely at the consumer market. How does the 11.6-inch IdeaTab Lynx K3011W compare to the competition and Lenovo's own ThinkPad Tablet 2?

The Lynx name would suggest something cutting edge and futuristic, but this Windows 8 convertible is anything but that. The IdeaTab Lynx is a very functional and reliable performer, with the extreme flexibility offered by the proper tablet mode and the keyboard dock. That, and the good battery life makes this a device that is very usable. However, it will still not be able to completely replace your proper laptop anytime soon.

70% Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx review: an 11.6 inch Windows 8 tablet
Source: Tech Advisor English Archive.org version
If you specifically require a tablet that runs Windows 8 then the slimline design and striking IPS display of the Lynx make it one of the better options currently available. However, it’s quite expensive on its own – especially given the modest memory and storage capacity – so we’d only recommend it if you can find it in a bundle that includes the keyboard dock as well.

70% Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx review - Windows 8 laptop and tablet priced to shift
Source: Tech Advisor English Archive.org version
Lenovo's IdeaTab Lynx falls into roughly the same category as the Acer Iconia W700 and the HP Envy x2: an Atom-powered Windows 8 tablet with a keyboard dock that sports a second battery, creating an ultraportable laptop. Costing £599 inc VAT (£499 ex VAT) with the keyboard dock, the IdeaTab is good for basic use, but its middling construction is worrisome.

The Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx is a Windows 8 tablet that offers good battery life and a large 11.6-inch display. It has 64GB of storage, 2GB of RAM and a 1.8GHz Intel Atom Z2760 CPU that provides solid performance. The price, however, is probably a bit too high for our liking.

All things considered, the category leader in the Atom Windows 8 sphere is another Lenovo tablet, the ThinkPad Tablet 2, with a good four extra hours of battery runtime and the option of stylus input. OK so its display is 10.1 inches across the diagonal, but you can’t have everything on a tablet. As the Lynx shows.

A decent Windows 8 tablet, but not Lenovo's best
Source: Engadget English Archive.org version
The moniker Lynx sounds a bit ferocious, but Lenovo's newest IdeaTab is hardly that. It's a reliable performer with a bright IPS display, and its price tag is reasonable, but the Lynx isn't the best-designed, longest-lasting or most feature-rich low-powered hybrid. For that, you don't even have to look outside Lenovo's wheelhouse: the ThinkPad Tablet 2's long battery life and comfortable keyboard make it our reigning favorite.

While the battery life is a bit short, it's still long-lasting, and the strong overall performance makes it a solid contender among Atom-powered Windows tablets. As Windows machines go, it's far from full-featured, but if you want something for content consumption and casual Windows computing, The Lenovo IdeaPad Lynx K3011 isn't a bad choice.

74% Review Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx K3011W Convertible | Notebookcheck
Big Fish. The market for convertibles based on Intel Atom processors is well populated. Silent, long battery life and low performance are characteristics often associated with this class of notebooks. Thankfully, the laptop uses the full version of Windows 8 (no Windows RT). In the following review, we will check whether the Lenovo test model can hold its own against the competition and whether the optional keyboard dock is worth the investment...

 

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


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.

» 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).

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.

0.646 kg:

This weight is typical for small tablets.

1.295 kg:

In former time,s this weight was typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, often 15 inch laptops weigh as much.


70.79%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
