Intel's Bay Trail Atom processors deliver more processing power and superior energy efficiency, so you can enjoy the full potential of Miix 2 for longer. They enable lightning fast web browsing and app loading as well as impressive visuals and enhanced security features to help keep your data safe.

High definition wide-view touch screen
Miix 2 features an impressive high definition touch screen that's great for viewing pictures and watching movies. This vibrant 8-inch display uses In-Plane Switching (IPS) to produce vivid colours and a wide angle of view, so you won't have to be directly in front of the screen to enjoy the images on display. The touch screen with five-finger multitouch technology makes for intuitive navigation and precise controls.

It uses stored images of your face to allow you to quickly login and also supports multiple users, so your whole family can log into their profile quickly and easily. A rear-facing 8 megapixel camera is great for taking quick snaps and videos to share with friends by email or through social networks.

Good Value Windows 8 Tablet This Lenovo Miix tablet boasts the full version of Windows 8 in a sleek, streamlined form. It's a perfect supplement to a bulky laptop or desktop for on the go use, and is very stylishly designed. It's not a true PC replacement, however, despite running a PC operating system. The harddrive is still only 32GB, and Windows requires a large portion of that. My only major criticism of this tablet is that it does have a tendency to get hot - this is something that could eventually have a negative impact on the internal workings. Adding in fans would take away from the slee design however - other full Windows 8 tablets have done this and tend to be on the bulky side. All in all, I would still say that this tablet is pretty good value for money. Windows may have lagged behind Apple and Android in the tablet market, but with the advantage of the full operating system (and support for plug-ins like Flash player), this does offer a solid alternative if you are looking for something designed more with work or study use in mind. 01 May 2014
Excellent product I wanted to surf, read books and PDF's, watch the odd video, email/diary/to do stuff, and a bit of writing of my projects. And compatability, I have win phone, and laptop. Pros: Screen is clear, bright, vibrant, video, pictures, text all look good on it. The ipad retina is just a touch clearer on text, with the additional pixels, but to be honest the miix is very clear. I used it today in bright sunlight, in the shade it's perfect, in the sunlight it's useable if necessary, but too reflective to use for long. Build quality is good, not ipad or lg gpad great, but good. Full microsoft works, and of course the ability to run anything, within reason. Works runs smoothly. Battery life is good. It drops off using desk top apps, but even then will last around a working day. On the laptop, win 8, the metro screen is almost useless, and I go straight to desktop. Here though it's the other way round. I've set up most things to run from the metro screen. It's a good looking, useable OS. It's not as free and customisable as Android, and is more like Apple. 7gb cloud storage, and if you already have cloud storage somewhere else, some good apps that manage all your storage spaces so you don't have to buy new storage with one provider. Meh: Sound is ok for video. Too thin for music. Not problem with headphones. Cons: The only cons are still to do with Win 8. The metro apps seem slow to load compared with either IOS or Android. The available apps is stil a downside to a degree. All the major stuff is there. It's not great on other productivity stuff, a great diary seems to be missing, good accounts stuff. The one thing the actual unit is missing that would be very useful is mini HDMI to use an external screen. With that, this would be as useful as a tablet, and a cheap laptop. You don't normally get this on other tabs either though. As always it depends what you want a tablet for, if full win 8, tablet fits your needs you shouldn't be disappointed. 16 March 2014
Great Windows tablet I bought this tablet because I wanted a smaller tablet to complement my Surface Pro 2. I have to say that its a great product, the build quality is good and Windows 8.1 runs great on it. Delivered quickly as usual from John Lewis 11 March 2014
