Customer Reviews for ThinkPad 8
Review 1 for ThinkPad 8
Perfect for travel in more ways than one
Date:August 12, 2014
"Yes, this tablet is fully loaded as is, but I use it for photographic purposes. I travelled to Central America carrying a full-size DSLR, 3 lenses and other stuff and I don't have room for a laptop. I switched my SD cards to microSD and use the SD adapter to load pix onto the Thinkpad. Now I can see what I've captured, do quickie edits via Picasa before I go home to PS and see the fruit of my labor. With wifi access the internet is quick. I've expanded my storage capacity by adding in a 64GB microSD card in which I store movies and such for entertainment during long flights. Great tablet!"
"I love this machine with only a few exceptions. The biggest disappointment is the camera when using the flash. It is a great camera. But when you use the flash the picture is washed out. I have tried changing the settings but it doesn't help much. One more complaint, font sizes. You have to set them for the many different areas and you cannot change the font size for the apps tiles. 3 stars on value is because for the money it should have 4GB ram instead of 2. To its credit it is still faster than my wife’s Surface RT but paid half the price. Had it for about 5 months and it crashed once. Had to hard reboot. Thats all the complaints. The reason I chose to buy the ThinkPad 8 over the other 8” tablets is because it has the full version of Windows not RT, 8mp camera with flash, 64gb hard drive, micro SD slot up to 64gb, faster CPU, slightly larger screen 8.3”, metal frame, and high quality screen. The battery has been adequate for me. I am not a heavy user (an hour or two at a time)."
"I will preface by saying I love Lenovo products typically and lost a little bit of faith in the Thinkpad 8 because it took forever to ship. But once I got it, I was amazed by its offerings. The screen absolutely blows you away and it has the perfect size with exceptional power. 5 stars!"
"Finally a device that Windows 8.1 is made for. There is very little that that I don't like about this device. The price is on the high end and think but offset against a well built product. I did have to return mine when I received it because of an audio issue, but apart from that, its been great. I love the cover. When you close it, it goes into standby super quick and retains the battery. I really like how productive I can be with it too with all the multi tasking with Windows 8.1"
