    Lenovo’s Miix 2 Windows tablet now available for $300 and up


    The Lenovo IdeaTab Miix 2 is an 8 inch tablet with Windows 8.1 software and an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor. Priced at $300 and up, it’s one of the most affordable Windows tablets on the market, and it’s now available for purchase from Amazon.

    For $300 you can pick up a model with 32GB of storage. A 64GB model runs $350.

    Both models feature Intel Atom Z3740 quad-core processor, an 8 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display and 2GB of RAM.

    The tablet measures 5.2″ x 8.5″ x 0.3″ and weighs 12.3 ounces. It features 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, a 5MP rear camera and 2MP front-facing camera, and stereo speakers. There’s a micro USB port, microSD card slot, and headset jack.

    Like most new Windows tablets with 10 inch and smaller displays, the IdeaTab Miix 2 comes with a fully licensed version of Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013, and Lenovo also includes its own Cloud Storage app, Evernote, Amazon Kindle, and Zinio magazine apps.

    Lenovo also plans to offer models with up to 128GB of storage and optional mobile broadband capabilities.

    The Miix 2 isn’t the first 8 inch Windows tablet with a Bay Trail processor to hit the streets. The $300 Dell Venue 8 Pro and $330 Toshiba Encore are both available as well.

    Dell’s tablet includes an active digitizer, which helps set it apart from the crowd. Lenovo’s tablet does not, but the company does plan to offer an optional $20 cover case that comes with a capacitive stylus.

      Fantastic snappy little tablet. Replaces my nexus 7 without issue, plus having a full version of windows 8 on hand is nice for doing remote IT administration on the go. My only complaints are that it came pre-installed with McCafee and the storage space is a bit small because of the recovery partition. 8.1 is a fantastic OS, and Lenovo knocked it out of the park on this one, makes a perfect travel companion and much nicer to use for reading ebooks than my lenovo yoga.

        This tablet is the thinnest and lightest on the market in 2013 (dont know what 2014 will bring). The screen is 1280x800. The screen is sensitive, you only need to touch it lightly for it to register, just like your Samsung galaxy. Go take a look at your or friend Samsung Note3, that' how thin this tablet is! Just like a girl, thin is sexy! haha. This tablet also very light! When i hold it on my hand, it doesnt feel heavy at all! The included usb charger output is 5.2V==2.0A, it' the same output as my galaxy note3 charger! So you can use your cellphone charger to charge this tablet (Do this at your own risk! i'm not responsible for damage to the tablet if any)! I tried to use my Samsung Note3 stylus on it, it does NOT work. So you need to buy Lenovo miix2 stylus. This tablet has microSD slot and micro usb port (for charging), not sure if you can hook up USB device with an microUsb to usb adaptor. There is no HDMI or micro/mini HDMI port. The CPU speed on amazon showing 1.8Gzh is incorrect! When i go to system info, it said Intel Atom cpu Z3740 @1.33Gzh. System type: 32-bit operating system, x64 based processor.
