Review 2 for ThinkPad 8
If you can find one, get it
Date:September 7, 2014
"It's got quality build. The screen is nice and bright. Movies and Powerpoints look amazing. The performance is great. You do make some trade offs using an 8" tablet versus a larger Windows tablet or even a laptop. It's an extension to a laptop, not a replacement. The screen in desktop mode makes it tough to use your fingers. That's the case with this unit and any of the competition. A Bluetooth keyboard and mouse help, but the idea of a tablet is to not have a keyboard. If a keyboard is important to you, buy an ultrabook, not a tablet. This and other 8" tablets take heat from reviewers for only having 2GB of RAM. 2GB is plenty. RAM is not the problem. The processor wasn't designed to be as fast as desktop PCs. I have used Adobe Photoshop with only minor delay. I wish power button was on top not side. Battery life is ok. I get 6 hours. Camera is so-so, lots of noise in my pictures. I use it to read papers, for travel, movies, edit documents, photos and excel. Perfect for that."
