The Lenovo Miix 510 is the company's latest take on Microsoft's Surface line

The Windows 10-powered Lenovo Miix 510 takes plenty of design inspiration from Microsoft's Surface Pro line, complete with a kickstand and digital inking capabilities. The Miix 510 will come in multiple configurations and different price tiers, boasting LTE support, a FHD+ display and a USB Type-C connector.

The highest-end configurations of the Lenovo Miix 510 don't compare to the 16GB RAM, Iris-powered graphics Surface Pro 4, but for those who find value in 4G LTE support, the Miix 510 could be a worthy contender.

As more and more companies jump on the Surface bandwagon, it's becoming harder to stand out in the crowd. Lenovo's newest Miix includes some interesting watchband hinges that give it an air of uniqueness, but comparisons to the Surface Pro-line are coming in thick and fast already.

  • 29Whr battery is tiny.
  • Pen responsiveness, battery life & price are the key things to look out for, and camera too. Surface offers a very good camera.
  • Logos on the bezel of a device designed to be held in numerous orientations <- why the hell do manufacturers not understand how stupid this looks?
  • Not sure there is evidence that people really care, tbh.
  • I've always like that apple has minimal branding, and MS as well. My HTC phone with the stupid HTC logo in multiple places looks awful.
  • I woulnd't say minimal for Apple since they always have a huge logo on back of every device and it's even lighted up for notebooks. I'd prefer no logo at all like probably most people since they didn't put it there for you...
  • It certainly never bothered me (SP3 owner).  I care about the price.  I feel I over-paid for my Surface, so I'm holding onto it until a newer device with better value comes along.
  • My wife and I both own Surface Pro 3's, but don't feel we overpaid at all. We use the holy living **** out of these things :P. She's an illustrator, I work in film, and believe me, these things are VERSATILE. She illustrates, I write, document, test framing (camera) at scouted locations, hand-write script notes during filming, etc. She also uses hers at art exhibitions to sell (paypal Here works great from her Surface, and people appreciate having a big screen and precise pen to sign with). They were expensive, to be sure, but overpriced? Nah. For the price of a MacBook Pro (or other high end laptop) I got a solid laptop AND a solid tablet AND a solid drawing/writing pad.
  • They're just following the leader :)
  • Miix 510 or 520?
  • While it's commercial success will depend on pricing, it proves how successful Microsoft has been with the Surface. It truly has motivated OEMs to use that as the benchmark and create a similar device
  • Totally!
  • I think: Microsoft will not release a Surface 5 PRO so have no problems with this look-a-like. I don't like that big Lenovo logo
  • Is that a real app on the device?  If so, what drawing app is that? 
  • The app title says "Sketch", which is available in Windows 10 store  
  • I pray it doesn't model Surface on the price tag...
  • It won't be. Surface line is a premium device portfolio from msft. I don't mean this isn't premium, but OEMs like Lenovo, HP and such consider things that best suite for the common.
  • Not too keen on these all-Chinese products, but if the price is right... The Surface line is so friggin' expensive!
  • And also Chinese.
  • I look forward to the moment when the first OEM creates a Surface clone with easy replaceable battery.  That's my main concern for my current Surface Pro 3, and I wish I could easily buy just one extra battery to start using the Surface Pro 3 like the day 1. I will wait for that first OEM and buy it instantly. As a side note, I have already chosen the Lumia 950 XL and I could not find any place where to get the extra battery.
  • The MS Surface Tablet/Laptop hybrids are great devices but have some fault 1=Priced very high, 2=hard to repair. 3=No LTE model except the good old "Surface 3 Atom CPU tablet that Microsoft does not sell anymore and that is bad for Microsoft because now theyhave no Microsoft tablet that costs under 500 USA dollars that students and poor folks can buy. damn Microsoft do not be like Apple who sells high priced gear
  • The hinges look horrible. Other than that its fantastic I think. :)
  • Same weight and thinkness of my Lenovo Yoga 3, terrible camera and poor battery.  My Lenovo is also terrible and i regret buying it, unless this cost half the price of a Surface, there is no point getting one.  
  • Pricing?
  • Them giant, ****ing bezels!
  • Dan Seifert must be pulling his hair out right about now.
  • I am really looking forward to the announcement of 200$ windows tablets
