Lenovo has a ton of new Windows products at IFA this year and one of them is this, the MIIX 700. And you're probably looking at it at least twice. Partly because it's a great looking, high-end Windows tablet. And partly because it looks a little bit like Microsoft's own Surface Pro 3 right down to the kickstand on the back.
It'll available in gold and black with Windows 10 starting at $699.
Specs wise, here's what we're looking at:
|Operating System||Windows 10 Home or Pro|
|CPU||Up to 6th-gen Intel Core m7 (Skylake)|
|RAM||Up to 8GB LPDDR3L|
|Display||12-inches, 2160 x 1440 resolution|
|Storage||Up to 256GB SSD|
|Ports||1 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB 2.0, Micro HDMI™-out Micro Sim (LTE / 3G SKU only), microSD™, Audio Combo Jack|
|Battery Life||Up to 9 hours claimed|
|Other||Optional keyboard dock, Intel RealSense camera (Rear)|
The comments about the appearance will come and they'll be somewhat justified. But on the other hand, Lenovo is giving us a look at what we might be expecting from Microsoft's next Surface Pro. While it's a little disappointing the RealSense camera is limited to the rear, meaning no Windows Hello facial recognition, its inclusion is at least a positive step in the technology being adopted.
There's also a new CPU in there, an Intel Core m7 6th-generation, along with more regular sounding fare like options for a 256GB SSD, 8GB of RAM and a keyboard dock that'll work (as we know) just great in tandem with the kickstand.
It's important not to judge the MIIX 700 just on its looks. We'll be getting a closer look at it from the show floor in Berlin in the coming days, so stay tuned to Windows Central.
