The Lenovo Miix 700 is a 2-in-1 Windows tablet with a 12 inch display, a built-in kickstand, and a keyboard dock that lets you use the tablet like a notebook.
It looks a bit like a Microsoft Surface Pro 3, and Lenovo’s tablet features an Intel Core M Skylake processor while Microsoft’s latest tablets feature Haswell chips.
The Miix 70 is available with up to a 2160 x 1440 pixel display, up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of solid state storage. It has 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, a full-sized USB 3.0 port and a USB 2.0 port, micro HDMI port, headset jack, and microSD card reader.
The tablet has a 5MP camera on the back and another on the front.
The tablet measures 11.5″ x 8.3″ x 0.35″ and weighs about 1.7 pounds.
Lenovo will offer models with up to an Intel Core m7 processor, and says the Miix 700 should be available in November for $699 and up.
Overall, it seems like an interesting alternative to a Microsoft Surface tablet, with specs that seem to fall between the Surface 3 and the Surface Pro… especially since it sounds like Lenovo’s price includes a keyboard, something which Microsoft sells separately.
On the other hand, the base price for a Lenovo Miix 700 doesn’t include a digital pen. Lenovo will sell you a pen if you like, along with an awkard attachment that lets you attach the pen to the side of the tablet by plugging it into a USB port.
