Meet the Yoga Tablet 8

Lenovo's newest tablet, the Yoga 8, has an 8-inch screen, is running Android Jelly Bean 4.2, features 16GB of internal storage, and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor.

The Yoga Tablet 8 goes on sale October 30 exclusively at Best Buy stores and on Lenovo's Web site. It costs $250.

HD display

The Yoga 8 has a 1,280x800-pixel-resolution screen with an IPS panel. That resolution is, frankly, low by today's standards.

Silver design

On the outside, there's a silver polycarbonate case with metal accents. Overall, the tablet feels well-built.

Kickstand

A hidden kickstand on the back of the tablet gives you multiple viewing angles. The design is similar to Lenovo's line of Yoga laptops, which can flip around into different modes.

Big power button

The power button is much larger than on your typical tablet, and it's easy to find. It also sits flush to reduce the chance you'll accidentally press it.

Headphone jack

On the opposite end of the power button, there's a headphone jack that's slightly recessed. There's also a small volume rocker just below the jack.

Thin profile

Aside from the thick bottom edge, the Yoga Tablet is slender at just 0.12 inch at the thinnest point. The 8-inch model weighs just 0.8 pound.
