A mish mash of pain and pleasure......but a great portable machine.,
This review is from: Lenovo Miix 10 10.1-inch Tablet (Silver) - (Intel Atom Z2760 1.8GHz Processor, 2GB RAM, 64GB eMMC, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Windows 8 MM) (Personal Computers)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My son and myself have both been using the Miix 10 for five weeks, giving us enough time and usage to get a fair review put together.
The construction is solid enough, overall it looks and feels good.
I echo other reviewers in that the separate keyboard is a joy to use, and equally as frustrating in blocking off access to the only usb port on the unit...... a silly design flaw. It's easy to switch from using as a table to a Windows 8 laptop - a swipe of the finger and you're done.
As a tablet its as good as any other I've tried. Apps load quickly, the UI is nicely laid out and quickly mastered, and video streaming from Netflix was smooth and lagless. As a Windows 8 laptop I wasn't overly impressed. I'm not that familiar with a touch screen interface and didn't really take to it, preferring instead to connect a blue tooth mouse. The initial update took forever and I had to leave the unit doing its work over night.
My son has been using it for college and he's gives a glowing review. It's small size and windows capability, coupled with all the usual tablet features have sold him on it totally.
So to conclude. A great 'combi' laptop/tablet. Takes a lot of getting use to and the touch screen may not be for everyone, but performance and capability wise, a competent little machine.
