Lenovo is a well known name in the laptop PC market. The Chinese company participated in the Mobile World Congress 2017 and unveiled a 2-in-1 convertible laptop called the Miix 320. It boasts modest specs and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
2-in-1 for Cheap
The Miix 320 looks like it is designed to compete with Chromebooks. This is because of its bare bones specifications coupled with a price tag of $200 which is what an average Chromebook costs.
As you can see from the image above, the Miix 320 is a 2-in-1 convertible laptop. The upper display part attaches with a magnetic joint with the lower keyboard part. The display is about the same size as a 10.1 inch tablet and weights about the same as well. The resolution for the Miix 320’s screen comes in at a respectable 1900 x 1200, much higher than other laptops or convertibles within this price range.
The keyboard seems average and is coupled with a Microsoft Precision Trackpad which can recognize touch or swipe gestures for navigation on Windows 10.
Weak Internals With a Strong Battery Life
The internals are one area where the Miix 320 disappoints. It features an aging Intel Atom X5 Cherry Trail processor coupled with 4 GB of RAM and a 128 GB eMMC based storage. On the plus side the battery life is stellar on this laptop, it can last up to 10 hours on average on a full charge.
Moving towards the connectivity side the Miix 320 features two full size standard USB ports on the keyboard half in addition to a USB Type-C port on the display half. It also supports LTE if you wish to truly be mobile.
Lenovo Miix 320 will be available in international markets from April for $199. A pen supported version of the Miix 320 will go on sale from July
