Lenovo’s latest Windows tablet is the company’s cheapest to date. The Lenovo Miix 300 is a tablet with an 8 inch display, an Intel Atom processor, and Windows 8.1 software. It will sell for $149 and up when it hits stores in July, 2015.
It won’t be the first Windows tablet to hit that price point, but it’s always nice to have another option.
The Lenovo Miix 300 features an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor, a 1280 x 800 pixel IPS touchscreen display and support for up to 2GB of RAM and up to 64GB of storage.
Like many other small, low-cost Windows tablets, the Miix 300 will come with a 1-year subscription to Microsoft Office 365.
Lenovo says the tablet should get up to 7 hours of battery life and it features 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, a 5MP rear camera, a 2MP front camera, and a microSD card slot.
One thing I suspect the tablet won’t have? Superfish software.

those tablets worth nothing if they don’t have HDMI, full size USB 3.0 AND USB micro 2.0 for charging
What’s the spyware Lenovo is installing on this tablet?
Brad – the linked news release on Lenovo says WUXGA resolution. Wouldn’t that be 1920×1200?
Hmm… That’s a good point, but folks who have actually seen the tablet at MWC are reporting it has a 1280 x 800 pixel screen. Maybe there will be a higher resolution option… Or maybe it’s a typo.
and a squeaky clean install too I’ll betcha.
“Up to 2gb of ram”, so is the $149 is probably going to be 1gb/32gb?
If that’s accurate, they’re going for a pretty hefty mark-up or plan to discount that price significantly. Given how poorly tablets have been doing lately though, I think these are going to underwhelm their sales projections regardless.
I’m thinking the $149 model is not gonna be 2/64.
Is it Bay Trail or Cherry Trail?
I’ll put my money on it being a Bay Trail. If it were Cherry Trail, I think the announcement would be a little more ceremonious.
That’s quite a possibility and be a disappointment. However, it may be Cherry Trail and they are not mentioning it before the Intel presentation.
Edit: you are absolutely right. According to HotHardware, it is Bay Trail T.
