Can’t decide if you want a Windows 8 tablet or a Windows RT model? They’re both about the same price these days — and you can even pick up a Lenovo Windows 8 tablet with a keyboard for a little less than a Lenovo Windows RT convertible at the moment.
While the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 has its charms (you won’t leave the keyboard at home because it’s always attached, and the computer comes with Office pre-loaded), the Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx is a pretty versatile model with an Intel Atom Clover Trail processor and the full Windows 8 operating system.
Or you could just wait until you can pick up a Windows 8.1 tablet with a Bay Trail processor offering longer battery life and better performance. Those are expected to sell for around $350 as well.
