First Look: Lenovo Miix tablet throws a keyboard case on Windows 8

1:02 /

Take a familiar 10-inch tablet, add a new accessory, and aim it at consumers: that's the Miix in a nutshell. Lenovo's 10-inch Atom tablet entry isn't much of a story otherwise.

Hi. I'm Scott Stein at CNET and there are a lot of Windows 8 tablets out there. One of the ones that was debuted at the beginning of this month that we finally got our hands on is the Lenovo Miix. Now it looks like a lot of other Windows 8 tablets out there that's a Dual Core Atom, 10-inch tablet that has its own Keyboard Folio case. If you saw the ThinkPad Tablet 2, released last year, well it's a lot like that except more consumer oriented. And there's no TrackPoint, there's just the keyboard. And you're getting pretty standard specs-- 64 gigs of onboard storage, your micro HDMI, and USB, and what else. Well, it bears consideration that this doesn't have the latest and greatest Intel processors that could make this had even longer battery life later on in the year and next year. Do you hold out for that or do you wait and see when this debuts? How the price and battery life performance hold up? Its keyboard case maybe its most interesting feature. I'm Scott Stein and that's a quick look at the Lenovo Miix Tablet.
