When you first saw a picture of the Lenovo Miix 700, you asked yourself the same thing we all did: “Is that a laptop or a tablet?”. Well… it’s a “miix”. The second I got acquainted with the machine, I was blown. First of all – the design is amazing. A thing that really caught my attention was the kickstand that the display part has on the back – it goes almost all the way back, which makes the machine extremely flexible and easy to use in many places. It goes almost all the way back, which makes it extremely flexible and easy to use in many situations. Also, the hinges are very sturdy, so don’t worry – more flexibility definitely doesn’t mean less strength. The display comes in 2 different back colors – black and gold and the leather backing of the keyboard is a great touch, that finishes the machine’s fashionable and classy look.
Lenovo Miix 700 – Specification Details:
Just to be clear – when you order the Lenovo Miix 700, you get both the touch screen display AND the keyboard for the price you are paying. You can detach the keyboard from the display very firmly and I can say, for sure, that Lenovo did a great job on making attaching and detaching the two parts of its product a very easy process, but at the same time, the attachment between them is very strong and stable, so there is no way the parts would come off while moving the device, for example. The 12-inch display come with the 2160 x 1440 resolution and the GPU (graphics) for all models is the same – Intel HD Graphics 515, and the RAM (memory) ranges from 4 GB LPDDR3 1866 MHz for the cheapest model and 8 GB LPDDR 1866 MHz for rest. You can choose a hard drive of either 64GB, 128GB or 256 GB, a processor that is Intel Core m3-6Y30 (2.20Ghz 1866Mhz 4MB) for the cheapest model, Intel Core m5-6Y54 (1.10Ghz 1866MHz 4MB) for the next one and Intel Core m7-6Y75 (1.20Ghz 1866Mhz 4MB) for the two most expensive ones, depending on what you plan on doing with the Miix 700 and how much money you are willing to pay.
Lenovo Miix 700 – Battery Life:
A feature that was definitely a surprise for me was the SD slot, in case you want to expand the memory that you already have, which is amazing and can save you a lot of money, The battery is the same for each model – 2-Cell Li-ion, which, said in an easy to understand way, means you can watch 2 full-length movies in full HD before your battery dies. Another nice part of the Lenovo Miix 700 are the camera. It’s a 5MP one and the pictures made with it that I’ve seen were pretty good and so were the videos. Of course, your smartphone probably has a better camera, but having an extra one just in case you need to take a quick picture of something and send it through your Lenovo Miix 700 is handy.
Lenovo Miix 700 – Price and Verdict:
The prices for Lenovo Miix 700 start at 749.99$, go through the amount of 899.99$, all the way up to 1099.99$ (these are prices for the USA). A bit extra information is that if you’re a graphic designer, for example, or just want to draw and write in your own handwriting on your Lenovo, you can get the Active Pen that Lenovo released (for 39.99$ in the USA). I actually have a friend that is doing a portfolio for university right now on his Lenovo Miix 700 and says that the Active Pen is very easy to use, has no glitches and its battery lasts a century.
It’s innovative, it’s stylish, it’s handy and it’s actually not as expensive as I would expect it to be, but I’ll probably need to save up for some time before I can get it. It’s definitely a device that is great for business and work, no matter whether you’re a drawer, a writer or a manager. It’s also a great alternative for carrying a big and heavy computer around when you’re planning to watch a movie on a plane, for example.
