The Lenovo Miix 700 in 60 Seconds

vlcsnap-error167Lenovo have come up with an option for those Microsoft Surface Pro lovers out there who are finding it too expensive to justify. With prices starting around $700 the Miix 700 covers much of the same ground, without the killer i3, i5 and i7 processor options. Instead, Lenovo have chosen the Core M7 to keep things moving. An impressive hinge mechanism helps with some of the limitations of the Surface Pro’s read angle on the desktop and lap.

  • Processor:  Intel Core M7 processor (the latest Skylake version)
  • Screen: 12”  2160 x 1440
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • ROM: up to 256 GB SSD + microSD card up to 128gb
  • Battery: Up to 9 hours
  • OS: Windows 10
  • Camera: Optional Real Sense 3D camera
  • Networks: Optional LTE
  • Connections: USB 2.0 microUSB

Killer feature: $700 is a lot less than a similarly specced Surface Pro 3
