The Miix 2 tablet range comprising of new 10 inch models has been one of the star attractions of the Lenovo camp at the just concluded CES event; and the good news here is that the netbook/tablet hybrid device has already gone on sale in the US. However, the above goes for the higher end model with price starting at $699. This is against the $499 price tag that the range starts with. Maybe the entry level model will be launched during the March – April period that Lenovo had originally announced to launch the Miix 2 tablet range in the US. As of now, the 10 inch Miix 2 is on sale only via Lenovo online store.
As for the device itself, the Miix 2 is among the first device to come powered by the 64 bit Intel Atom Bay Trail chip that promises superior performance. This combined with the latest Windows 8.1 makes for a device that is suited just fine for work as much as it is for entertainment. Another highlight of the 10 inch Miix 2 tablet range is the way it gets attached to the keyboard base via strong magnetic action while allowing varying configurations to suit its intended operation, that of work and play.
Overall an excellent device that offers best-in-class performance and delivers optimum results in both standalone tablet or hybrid notebook mode.
