4.0 out of 5 stars Simply good, 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lenovo Miix2 8-inch Tablet (Silver) - (Intel Atom 1.33GHz, 2GB RAM, 32GB eMMC, WLAN, BT, 2x Camera, Windows 8.1) (Personal Computers)
If youre planning on buying this then you probably do want a small tablet but windows 8 as an operating software really isnt designed for such small screens, especially because of the great multitasking feature of the improved windows 8.1. While it may seem brilliant to watch netflix on one half of the screen and type up coursework in the other, this is ideally for bigger tablets. This tablet is good for simple processes, the battery power only really lasted me 4 hours while i did word processing and video playing at the same time so quite good. However as a small tablet you will find it very hard to touch a speciifc button sometimes due to the small screen. Also the lack of a usb drive makes it basically synonymous to an android tablet that can use windows legacy apps. In conclusion this sint to replace your laptop, its to replace your app using tablet. Ultra portability and computer power dont mix well unfortunately and most of these types of products will only have one or the other.

You say you've done word processing while watching a film simultaneously, so I wonder if you've used an external keyboard. The Miix 8 is advertised with a flip keyboard cover, did you use this?

I had done the word processing using the virtual touch keyboard, on the screen it ha blocked some of the video player but the black margin lines were so significant it isn't make much of a difference. I didn't know it had come with a keyboard because I surely did not receive one, but if you are planning on getting this then definitely get the keyboard hardware, the virtual keyboard is very fidgety and My personal experience is that the Lenovo touch screen can be quite unresponsive when trying to do tasks like I did
