At MWC this year, Lenovo upgraded their Windows 10-powered 2-in-1 called the Miix 320, and it costs just $199. Sure, its specs aren’t all that great, but the company did manage to shove quite a lot into a body not much bigger than an iPad and may become a leading Chromebook competitor.
For starters, there’s a 10.1-inch Full HD (1920×1200) display on board alongside an Intel Atom x5 processor, Windows 10, up to 4GB of RAM, up to 128GB of SSD storage, and Intel HD Graphics. You also have the option of LTE connectivity so you can pop in a data-enabled SIM card. In addition, a USB-C port is used for charging while two USB 2.0 ports and a microSD card slot offer data transfer. Oh yeah, and there’s a headphone jack.
To make it a 2-in-1, Lenovo designed the Miix 320 to detach from its keyboard base, much like the Surface Book does. Without the base attached, what you’re left with is a tablet that weighs 1.2 pounds, so it’s not exactly hefty by any means and can probably be used comfortably. For reference, with the keyboard attached, the 320 weighs 2.2 pounds.
Speaking of the keyboard base, Lenovo updated it with a precision trackpad for this year, adding a spec Microsoft is trying to push more PC makers to take advantage of for a better Windows 10 experience. It looks pretty large according to the pictures, so you shouldn’t have many complaints with it.
The Miix 320 for 2017 will go on sale this April starting at just $199.
