Lenovo adds a 10-inch and an 11-inch version on its Lenovo Mixx 2, launched at CES 2014.
The Lenovo MIIX 2 is actually a hybrid Windows 8.1 with both a tablet and notebook mode. This one’s like the ASUS Transformer Book T100 having a detachable tablet without the release button to lift it out from the keyboard dock. However, it stands at a fixed viewing angle when docked, either facing the keyboard to be used as full laptop or flipped around to make the keyboard dock as its stand for watching videos or slide presentations.
The 10-inch Miix 2 gets a quad-core Intel Atom Bay Trail CPU, coupled with 2GB of RAM, and an onboard 128GB eMMC storage, plus an expandable slot up to 32GB. The tablet alone weighs 1.3 pounds, and adds another pound with the keyboard attached.
The 11-inch version, on the other hand sports a Core i3 processor, which is upgradable to even more powerful Core i5. It has 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD, also both upgradable up to 8GB and 256GB, respectively. It weighs at 1.8 pounds in tablet mode, and packs an extra 1.3 pounds when docked.
Both MIXX 2 models comes with a full HD 1920 x 1200 resolution display at 178-degree wide viewing angle. They’re also equipped with a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front-facing camera. Both Lenovo Mixx 2 models are scheduled to be on sale by February, with the 10-inch’s starting price at $449, and the 11-inch version priced at $599. Though, global roll-out and local pricing is yet to be announced.
