The news is starting to arrive from Berlin and the first to start discovering new products have been Lenovo, which along with several laptops has also presented us with a new tablet, the Miix 700, which leaves no doubt as to what has been its source of inspiration and against whom to compete: Microsoft Surface tablets. What are your assets to try to dispute the primacy in the territory Windows? We give you all the information of the new tablet.
As we anticipated, what most attracts attention in the design of the new Miix 700 are certainly the similarities with the tablets of Microsoft, especially due to the incorporation of a support which opens at the back of the device and allows it to be held vertically, exactly as in the Surface, although the mechanism that regulates them, that is true, is that kind of hinge that we have already seen in other hybrids of its range Yoga. The keyboard which complements it, also reminds a lot of the Touch Cover, but it is not the only official accessory that we can have to maximize our productivity, since it also has its own stylus. In terms of dimensions, it is relatively large (29.2 x 21 cm), although it is normal considering the size of your screen, its thickness is 8.9 mm and his weight of 780 grams.
As regards the hardware, the Miix 700 would arrive with a screen of 12 inches with resolution 2160 x 1440 and a processor Intel Core m7 (Skylake), which they accompany until 8 GB of RAM The storage capacity would be 256 GB (expandable via micro-SD) and the cameras, both the main and the front, are 5 MP. It has a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port and a micro-HDMI port. As for the battery, we don't have the exact capacity data, only Lenovo's autonomy estimates, which put it in 9 hours. The operating system, of course, will be already Windows 10.
Price and availability
Fortunately, we have had the opportunity to have some reference from the first moment regarding what it will cost us and when we can buy it: its launch will take place at the end of the year, in the month of November (Although we do not know if it will reach all areas of the world immediately) and its price will be from 700 dollars (which we assume will translate into some more euros).
