Great spec'ed tablet for the price. Comes with a keyboard dock. Was £250, now reduced to £197.95. Amazon has it for £245 and Very.co.uk for £200 - but both of these versions are 1280x800 resolution. This one from JL says it is full HD 1920x1080.

Apparently it was originally listed as 1920x1080 on Amazon as well, but when amazon sent it out, buyers found that it was actually 1280x800... so there's a couple of bad reviews on amazon. Amazon has since fixed the description.

I order mine on Friday from JL, still waiting for it to arrive (7 day delivery). Will update here whether it is 1920x1080 or 1280x800. In either case, 2 year guarantee (plus the £25 staff discount I got thanks to my wifey) trumps any other deals for a 10 inch Windows tablet so I'm keeping it.

UPDATE: Just received mine this afternoon. It's 1280x800 resolution. But its a very crisp display, much better than the Acer Switch 10 and the Linx 7 I've used.

Just read it properly! "It also comes with a year's subscription to Microsoft Office 365"

Also click and collect not available so guessing its not instore.

If it IS true HD then it won't be 155 PPI as stated (155 PPI = 1366 x 768 resolution). There's a mistake somewhere in the listing...
#4
It's showing up as 1920x1080 on John Lewis too.
#5
Ordered!

Be interesting to see what you get delivered.
Also it shows the Folio case keyboard and also the Dock pictures.

Lenevo site states that in Early Dec they moved to the proper Dock stand......again interesting to see what you get?

How do they arrive at full HD being 1366 x 768? My TV is full HD but it certainly isn't 1366 x 768 resolution!

The german version is Full HD, so I'm hoping that's what I'll get.

If JL run out of stock its also available from the Very group of websites (isme,woolworths etc) for £199 though you will only get a 1 year warranty. Probs codes flying around for new account discounts also somewhere. The last time I ordered from Woolworths ordered the Lenovo Yoga tablet and they delivered a Yoga 2!

If you buy one, run a search as soon as possible to make sure it's not one of the infected Leveno computers.

Hitman Pro will detect and remove it. 30 day trial version works.

I plan to boot it up, check the configuration, resolution, etc, create recovery disk and then install stock Windows... I hate it when manufacturers install their bloatware

I think what you are quoting refers to the original Miix NOT the Miix3. The Lenovo site only shows the Miix 3 8" as being a current model no mention of the Miix 3 10". Delving a bit further turned up a Lenovo product overview for the Miix 3 10" CLICK HERE. As you will observe, it quotes the display as being "10.1”, 16:10 (1,280 × 800 pixels / 1,920 × 1,200 pixels) Talk about confusing!

At the lo res it more or less competes head to head with recent the Linx 10 tablet/keyboard deals and none the worse for that. With Full HD its a much more attractive proposition but the cpu and memory will have more work to do pushing the extra pixels about.

ADDENDUM: The Lenovo user guide for the Miix 3 10" can be found CLICK HERE.

I bought one of these with Very.co.uk. I ended up returning it. The speakers on it were awful so was pointless trying to watch videos on it. The keyboard was average and kept missing letters. The screen was amazing. Really crisp.

Did Very take it back??? I tried returning the Linx 7 and they wouldn't have it. Took me ages to convince the supervisor that the piece was defective.

They took it back easily. Had no problems. Great customer service to be honest.

There's two version of this tablet... the UK version (sold by very and amazon) that comes with a dock and has 1280x800 resolution, and the German version that comes with the folio keyboard case and has 1920x1080 resolution.
#20
Tempting deal but I'm hanging fire until confirmation comes through on the actual screen resolution on the tablet - I was considering a Dell Venue Pro 11 (either one of the i3/i5 Core models) but it's a lot more in price in compared to this, especially as I would need to purchase the tablet keyboard and/or docking station for it as well.

I think the asus t100 is a better buy
#22
I prefer the t100
#23
Also does the Miix come with the Folio case? JL has it in the pic but not in the text

Used the live Chat and JL staff confirmed

"Screen resolution is listed as 1024 * 768. I will check further for you"
So it is not 1080 as listed on the JL web site

1024x768 is a 4:3 resolution though?

Would be surprised if its 1024x768... This ain't 1999. 1024 is a non started... doubt lenovo would make a mistake of manufacturing the tab with this resolution.

I compared the t100 and acer switch 10 quiet meticulously... thought acer was the winner, so i bought it from argos ebay outlet... am having to return it now coz of dead pixels!

I've got the acer switch 10 (which I am returning to get this one). Both tabs have same processors, etc. Acer was able to smoothly stream 720p movies over wifi, can't see why this one won't play GoPro videos... not sure about editing though!

I edit 30fps 1080P videos on my T100 taken from a Lumia 1020 and a cheap action cam. Works perfectly well using Movie Maker.

The reason I chose my T100 instead of the Switch 10 is because it has USB charging, a full size USB 3 port, better battery life and lighter weight. These features allow me to keep it recharged via a normal phone charger whilst travelling etc...& the full size USB 3 port gives me high speed access to peripherals using an external USB dock.

I'm not sure how the Lenovo compares - but I personally think the T100 is better than the Switch 10.

The mains charging is one of the main reasons I chose the acer - must faster charging (18v charger as opposed to 5v on asus). Plus the various modes (laptop, tent, etc) which you can't do with asus. The weight difference between the two is only very small.

Now with lenovo I am going to have the same problem that i had with linx - can't charge and use usb at the same time without a dock

How much did you pay for the T100T? Where I work they're £199, look like a useful bit of kit. I haven't had time to play with one. Also the Lumia 1030 looks to be on my next phone list, I want to play with WP10.

You have 2 usb ports in the dock on the Lenovo though...unless I am mistaken?

As for the T100 - I guess a benefit for me is a drawback for you. I like that I don't need an additional charger when travelling. My Nokia phone charger sorts out my phone, tablet, Anker battery & my headtorch :) ! & being able to extend battery life whilst on a flight is really useful too. I hope Asus sticks with USB charging - but perhaps boosts it somehow (maybe by using a USB 3 connection on the charging port)

I always tend to go down the Gumtree route for such things (especially for Asus things, where the warranty is tied to the serial number rather than the original purchase receipt).I paid £120 for mine about 12 months ago.

So far, I haven't found anything that replaces its functionality. The only upgrades I want (though don't necessarily need) are a faster Atom processor, a bigger/better touchpad, and a full HD screen. Extra storage would be useful - but I have yet to get within 5GB's of using all the drive space. Everything else just works perfectly...including the keyboard! I use mine with a Dell 22" 1080P monitor, along with a USB dock (for external HDD/USB sticks/plugging in my phone and connecting a mouse). I do website development stuff along with all of the usual entertainment things (Netflix/Spotify/Youtube etc). I even use it for video editing whilst cycle touring :). Just a great little device

Here's an interesting review of the Lenovo with quite a few reference comparisons with the T100;

http://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-Miix-3-10-Convertible-Review.137112.0.html

What surprised me the most was the 647 minute runtime of the Asus vs the 357 minute runtime of the Lenovo.
Another surprising thing was the +14% improvement in video rendering on the Asus.

The Lenovo does marginally beat the Asus in a few areas...but on balance, if you need good battery life, the Asus is still top of the pile (which suits me perfectly as it means I don't have any device envy :). I shall continue plodding along with the setup I'm using!)

I posted this review link above as well. What has surprised me is this review talks about under 6 hours of battery life. But this guy (http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/R2IM4E4ZOS3JWO/) managed to squeeze about 11 hours out of it! I guess I am going to have to find out for myself.

It says its 155 PPI which means it is the lower resolution.

155PPI sounds more like 1366x768 resolution... which as per Lenovo's website is not a resolution that this model comes with... The mystery continues.
