MWC 2017 | Lenovo Miix 320 detachable coming this April for under $200 USD
The Microsoft Surface tablets have shown that the tried-and-true Windows platform can work well outside of the usual desktop and laptop form factors. Beyond the Surface series, however, Windows tablets are generally hit or mess in terms of performance and build quality.
The Lenovo Miix 320 is yet another Windows tablet retailing for far less than even the most affordable Surface Pro 4 SKU. The 10.1-inch Lenovo tablet supplants the existing Miix 310 while weighing slightly less (1.02 kg vs. 1.1 kg) and being just a hair thinner (17.5 mm vs. 18.2 mm). Unfortunately, the 2017 refresh does not appear to add many new features outside of the improved Dolby Advanced Audio speakers. Backlit keyboard or Core m options, for example, remain absent as the system is fixed on the passively-cooled Atom X5. Nonetheless, its SIM support and 16:10 display should appeal to business users on-the-go and we're hoping to see a brighter display this time around as well.
Core specifications for the Miix 320-10ICR include:
- Intel Atom X5 (likely the Z8300 Cherry Trail or similar)
- 10.1-inch 16:10 display up to FHD (1920 x 1200)
- Integrated HD Graphics
- Up to 4 GB DDR3L RAM
- Up to 128 GB eMMC (non-expandable)
- 5 MP rear + 2 MP front cameras
- Optional LTE
- 17.5 mm thick (9 mm tablet + 8.5 mm dock)
- 1.02 kg
The Miix 310 is coming this April in Platinum Gray and Snow White colors for just $200 USD and will launch alongside the larger Yoga 720 convertibles.
