"Before purchasing the Miix 2, I looked at the Nexus and Kindle tablets but I kept coming back to the Windows tablet. I like being able to link this tablet to my laptop and share across platforms. I like the performance of the Intel Bay Trail processor along with the Windows 8 OS. My only problem is that it is a little uncomfortable to hold over a period of time. It seems to be lacking a little in the design of the tablet. Also, I would have liked to have had a USB 2 port and a HDMI port. Overall this is a really good Windows 8 tablet and I would recommend it to anyone purchasing one."
I'm here to write that the tablet I got doesn't come with the Office 2013 activation key sticker, try to contact Lenovo service, and they refuse that this tablet come with the key. But talking to the sales dept, they said it come with it and I don't have to purchase my own product key. Worse experience ever."
Touch screen makes things almost impossible to use
Date:July 3, 2014
"Overall this tablet is good and reliable (for a tablet). I tried it as a modern replacement for a desktop PC, but tablet productivity doesn't come ever close to productivity of desktop environment. And, as appeared later, I'm incompatible with touch screen, it makes much more difficult to achieve the simple tasks as closing tabs in browser or scrolling scroll bar for a few lines. Maybe this is Windows 8.1 problem. Clicking on tiny bottom arrow of the scroll bar (Firefox) more often minimizes browser or opens calendar than actually performs required operation, and tends to scroll by screen or one line, not a few. It takes 6-8 trials to get it done. The same with tabs in FF. Means impossible to get work done in a reasonable time. But tablet has a good battery life and it is portable to carry, I still use it for a kill the time browsing."
"After about 6 months of having this awesome tablet, I found many problems that could have used some fixing; the main problem is the screen brightness. Even at low the brightness hurts the eyes after a while, I must be slowly going blind because of it. The ram makes this little computer amazing, but the processor has trouble running multiple apps. The design is nice, but the quality is a little sensitive, plus the company logo seems to be the only nice part on the whole product. My tablet has been dropped many times, and it starts looking ugly fast of it's dropped on its sides; plus it's impossible to keep certain parts from scratching without a case or screen protector. Although the speaker is full HD, it is not loud; my old Galaxy S3 has more of punch that the speaker in this tablet. The touchscreen shuts off when your figures are moist. It has trouble running constantly updated apps and web pages which also leads to many more crashes and touchscreen freezing."
"Pros: screen brightness, battery, price, full windows 8.1,micro SD expansion ,dedicated capacitive start button Cons: lack of sufficient inbuilt storage, not full HD, I use this tab for my regular browsing , email, one note, and remote desktop to azure VMs, you can get things done with the meagre power it offers. Viewing angles are decent. Front and rear cams are very good for video calls. Not to forget that it runs all day with single charge. A gorilla screen with fHD would be more exciting to have. games like asphalt 8, world of arms run without any lag. intel gave the sufficient power needed, but graphics are just average."
"Bought it in April and as of now, it's been in the workshop for half the time i have owned it. The software is unreliable and crashed badly to the point i needed a total re-installation of windows followed by a full replacement of the motherboard. The whole experience has not been positive and I should have been more patient for newer hybrids with better functionality and battery life.
I bought this for work use since I travel a lot. The form factor is ideal, performance is barely adequate - I am missing many of the apps for news, weather, email client etc that makes life easier and more productive for me.
Maybe my expectations were too high. Will sell or trade it the first chance i get."
