Lenovo Ideapad Miix 310 – Design:

The Miix 310 looks compact and cute. The tapered edges around the screen and keyboard seamlessly blend in with the design. The detachable display docks onto the keyboard using Pogo pin teeth, and you need to grip and pull the tablet while holding the keyboard in place. The tablet sits firmly on the keyword without any wobbles. At 2.4 pounds, this hybrid feels lighter than its competitors like the Aspire Switch 10 E and HP Pavilion x2 10t. Furthermore, the detached tablet is very compact measuring 1.4 inch thin and weighing just 1.3 pounds.

Lenovo Ideapad Miix 310 – Display:

The Ideapad Miix 310 sports a 1280 x 800-pixel screen that displays the colors pretty nicely. Although it is reflective when the screen brightness is set to high, it offers decent viewing angles. The touchscreen is responsive and works without any lags whatsoever.

Lenovo Ideapad Miix 310 – Keyboard and Touchpad:

The Miix 310’s keyboard provides decent input, but may not be a great option for touch typists. You can retain accuracy as long as your typing speed is not above 65 words per minute. Although the key mechanics work perfectly, the compactness of the keyboard slows you down, but this happens with any 10.1-inch hybrid. The 3.2 x 1.9-inch button-less touchpad offers good response and even accepts Windows 10’s three-finger navigation gestures.

Lenovo Ideapad Miix 310 – Processor, RAM, Storage, and Graphics:

The Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor and 2GB of RAM offer plenty of processing juice for surfing the web while keeping a couple of apps open. However, be advised that this Lenovo hybrid is not for serious multitaskers. On Geek bench 3, the Miix 310 scored 2440 which is OK for an entry-level hybrid. The eMMC (64GB) storage drive copies at an average speed of 36.7 MBps. Speaking of graphics, this is no gamer’s laptop since its integrated Intel HD graphics cannot handle graphic-intense games, but games such as Candy Crush Saga work smoothly.

Lenovo Ideapad Miix 310 – Battery and Operating System:

You don’t have to carry the Miix 310’s power cord if you’re carrying the hybrid to your workplace. This 2-in-1 lasted for over 12 hours when tested with Wi-Fi turned on.

This hybrid doesn’t have any serious heating issues. It’s back may turn warm after few hours of use, but that happens with any laptop.

This machine ships in with a clean installation of Windows 10 except for two apps called Lenovo ID and Lenovo App Explorer.

Lenovo Ideapad Miix 310 – Cameras and Audio:

The Miix 310 is equipped with a 2-MP front camera and a 5-MP rear lens. The front snappers is OK for video conferences and taking selfies while the rear one’s resolution is not enough to capture finer details, but its snaps are clear enough to post on social media.

The speaker on the right of the Ideapad Miix 310 produces clear tones, but the sound is barely enough to fill a room.

Lenovo Ideapad Miix 310 – Bottom Line:

The Lenovo Ideapad Miix 310 offers enough speed to get a modest amount of work done. It is lightweight, affordable and has an unmatched battery life. It can be a great second laptop that can be carried anywhere you go. Also, if you are buying your child his first computer, this machine will be a fantastic choice.
