I know there are a lot of Windows haters on here and a lot of Android and Apple fanboys. I'm a fanboy of technology and I chastise companies equally and praise them equally.
In any case, I've owned an iPad and an Android tablet and both were good, but I decided to buy a Lenovo Lynx Windows 8 (not that RT shit) tablet and I love it. I can run both tablet apps and full Windows x86 apps, and I use it for everything from work to streaming on XBMC, Photoshop, etc. That said, it wasn't exactly a spec powerhouse. Now Lenovo is releasing the following Windows 8 tablet that I think is going to be killer.
Lenovo has taken the wraps off its latest , the Miix2 8-inch slate. With the tablet comes a quad-core processor and a wide-angle IPS display, as well as Windows 8.1 and an optional stylus. This is one of several devices running Intel Bay Trail processors that will surface over the coming weeks, bringing with it a moderate price tag of $299 USD.
In addition to the quad-core Bay Trail processor, the tablet features Intel HD Graphics alongside Clear Video HD technology and 128GB of internal storage space (microSD expansion slot also available). The display measures in at 8-inches, and has a moderate resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels with 10-point multi-touch support.
The front of the device is equipped with a 2-megapixel camera, while around back there is a 5-megapixel camera. In addition to the Windows 8.1 OS, the tablet is also preloaded with Microsoft Office Home & 2013 software. Both a stylus and cover are being offered as optional accessories. The tablet will be available later on this month.
Full Windows 8 in a quad-core bay trail processor, with 128 GB of storage and an IPS display by default for $299? This is an absolute steal!
Just a head's up in case you are in the market for a tablet.
