Top Customer Reviews
Firstly, if your using traditional windows software you simply have to get a good keyboard and mouse. This instantly means that your setup is a fair bit heaver and less stream lined than first appearances and obviously more consuming of space in your bag.
Lenovo haven't helped much in this department as for some totally bizarre reason they have decided not to make a specific keyboard for the Thinkpad8 or hardly any other accessories. They exist for their other tablets, yet for some reason I can't imagine they seemed to decide that this more powerful tablet that will clearly be aimed at business users doesn't need something as fundamental as its own keyboard. You can apparently use the Thinkpad 2 Bluetooth keyboard but its incredibly expensive and has no alterable viewing angle which I found horrible in theory.
Secondly I wish it had more RAM. Using certain software even though this is a real PC just isn't going to work due to that limitation. An example I had was Photoshop. I wasn't editing large files at all but due to how some of the plugins Adobe make are written they easy exhaust available RAM and seem to not support using swap space. I'd actually never seen some of the built in PS plugins produce RAM errors before but then I guess I haven't been relegated to 2GB for a fairly long time. I know PS is pretty demanding but still thought I would mention.Read more ›
1-8.3 inch full HD screen. Large enough for most of the things small enough to be portable. Screen can easily compete with leading tablets
2-Good processor fast enough for usual needs
3-50gb memory with over 30gb available and microSD slot for cheap expansion
4-Excellent build quality
5-Definitely more useful than iPad and Android tabs. I have moved from LG Gpad 8.3 and have used iPad in past
6-Full Office included for free and works due to touch friendly interface
7-All the WIN 7&8 software and drivers are compatible. I can use mouse keyboards printers etc without a glitch
I thinks windows has finally turned the corner and android/apple tablets now seem less useful. In particular iPad seems expensive and restricted crape. To make life easy spend a few hours going through installed windows 8 user guides and look carefully around new office applications.
Over priced in UK and Europe as compared to US. You can find it slightly cheaper by using product code search BT - 20BN000UUK on Google please note that there are multiple codes for this item.
Quickshot cover not included. The price in the UK is 3 times US and a complete rip off
Speakers not as good as Samsung tabs
No all application shortcut in desktop mode
I have written the review on this tablet by using soft keyboard
Updated: 24/05/14 after nearly 1 month use. The stereo headphone socket not working and Lenovo support is bit tricky as you have to post it to them. Reduced the star rating therefore.
