Lenovo makes some of the funkiest hybrids around, and this year at CES they unveiled a revamped Yoga 2 and two new Miix 2 Windows tablets. The Miix aren’t as flexible as the Yoga, but they do have a few unique features…
The Miix 2 Windows tablets come in 10.1-inch and 11.6-inch sizes, and both come with a keyboard dock which transforms the tablets into a full-fledged little laptop. The Miix 2’s have 1,920 x 1,200 IPS displays and both come with dual 5MP/2MP shooters, and Windows 8.1. As for the dock, you’ll get a microSD slot, micro-HDMI, and a USB port. Did we mention the screens attach to the dock with magnets? It does, and this allows you to use the Miix 2 three different ways with Tablet, Laptop, and Stand mode.
The real difference between the Miix 2 Widows tablets lies beneath the surface. The 10.1-inch Miix 2 comes with an Intel Bay Trail processor, up to 128GB of storage, and 2GB of memory. As you’d expect, the 11.6-inch model packs more of a punch with an i5 processor, up to 256GB SSD, and you can kick the memory up to 8GB.
The prices on Lenovo’s Miix 2 Windows tablets start at $499 for the 10-inch model and $699 for the 11-incher. If you’re interested in picking one up, you won’t have to wait long as the smaller Miix 2 will be out in March and its big brother will drop in April.
