The Lenovo MIIX 3 is the portable Windows tablet that you have always wanted. It combines the simplicity of a tablet with the familiarity of the Windows ecosystem - meaning you can get more done without spending more money on a full-size notebook PC.

A tablet with quad-core performance and running Windows 8.1 with Bing, Miix 3 from Lenovo is great for productivity on the go. This palm sized tablet features a premium design and comes with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 pre-installed to make working on the go easier than ever.

Windows 8.1 and Microsoft Office 365
Miix 3 is running Windows 8.1, delivering the full desktop experience on an 7.85-inch display. Use the Start Screen, Live Tiles and Charms to navigate Windows more easily than ever through the touch screen. It also comes with a year's subscription to Microsoft Office 365, giving you access to Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneNote, Outlook and Publisher on the go.

Intel Atom mobile processing
Intel's Bay Trail Atom processors deliver more processing power and superior energy efficiency, so you can enjoy the full potential of Miix 3 for longer. They enable lightning fast web browsing and app loading as well as impressive visuals and enhanced security features to help keep your data safe.

Aluminium body
A lightweight aluminium body with an ebony black finish gives the Miix 3 a premium feel and a sophisticated look. It's highly durable, yet still amazingly lightweight at just 375g, making it easy to take wherever you go.

High definition wide-view touch screen
Miix 3 features an impressive high definition touch screen that's great for viewing pictures and watching movies. This vibrant 7.85-inch display uses In-Plane Switching (IPS) to produce vivid colours and a wide angle of view, so you won't have to be directly in front of the screen to enjoy the images on display. The touch screen with ten-finger multitouch technology makes for intuitive navigation and precise controls.

Connected
A micro-USB port will let you connect your Miix to a computer for data transfer, while Bluetooth 4.0 will allow you to wirelessly connect your device to a variety of devices, from keyboards to speakers. The microSD card slot is handy for transferring files or increasing the storage capacity of your tablet by up to 32GB. Wi-Fi will ensure that you can connect to available wireless networks at home, at work or in a public place with a free connection.

Accessories Included AC adaptor, user documentation
Battery life Information Up to 5 hours

Too expensive for me. But then I am Android person when it comes to tablets.

Average tablet, good for light users. No Windows 10 I presume, however windows has announced free upgrade to 8 users, lets see.

I bought the Linx tablet for 55 pounds about two months ago, so that still looks quite expensive to me

Screen res is only 768x1024 so its not 16:9 or 16:10 so the aspect ratio on videos,games etc wont look right or you will get black bars

No video out yet? (or mhl)

2gb ram makes it a bit more useful than my 8" linx which was £49 from staples, but screen res looks a bit wierd

Windows with Bing - reason for lower price, so not genuine discount

have you used one no real difference at all to the regular.

Is this one significantly better than Linx ??

Thats the one thing I'm quite interested in about this tablet, presumably its 4:3. Not so good for media as you say but some people prefer this for browsing and reading (myself included). It is afterall the aspect ratio of the iPads. The only other Windows tablet I know of that has something comparable is the latest incarnation of the Microsoft Surface.

Shame that the resolution is so low... the screen experience will basically be first-gen iPad mini. I'm not usually a pixel density snob but thats not great, particularly for something that tends to be held quite close.

None at all, other than a preset search provider, which you can change. People seem to be missing this. This is purely a way for Microsoft to give windows away for free and not lose face from the years of saying they'd never do it. There is no missing functionality.

id go with the Asus T100 better and bigger screen and addition of keyboard

The one that's £300?

have to agree with happyblob, looks ok but the screen res is so so low ...plus 7.8
something like this @ 10 with hires screen wltb.

Haha....the comment of a person that doesn't know better

The 'Windows with Bing' moniker is simply a way of Microsoft being able to give away the licences for free. Having Bing installed by default gives Microsoft the wriggle room to say 'we'll offer you $10 off the usual $10 licence fee !'

As cheap as £110 if you know where to look

This is too expensive? How much is the equivalent android tablet that can run as smooth as this?

If you want the usefulness of a pc, and the clumsiness of an android tablet this lets you have both. Just install bluestacks. The complete android experience with a simple alt F4 to return to windows world

Saying all that think I would prefer full sized usb and hdmi port

Superfish

It's good office prebuilt on it though... For that price it's worth it

Conflict in description (Lenovo's website states Office 365 with no mention of 2013 edition) and I'd say it'll be Office 365 included rather than "Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013" which means it'll be 1 tablet and 1 desktop/laptop sub just like the Linx and Toshiba tablets had.

I like. Deals like this usually have W8 tablets at 1GB RAM.

shame no HDMI out ...otherwise would have purchased

always had android tablets but bought the Linx 10 when cheap at staples along with loads of others on here and its brilliant, HDMI out is a must for me tho.

You might want to consider this:

banggood.com/CUB…tml

Banggood aren't allowed on this site for some reason, but I've used them and they're good. Got my voyo a1 mini last year for around £95

Would only get a surface windows tab. Not this.

Very interested in a cheaper windows tablet (£100 - £200) due to ongoing issues with android Nexus ones after lollipop update. This and Linx ones look good value but none have GPS as far as I can see. If windows is being given away free like android then cannot the manufacturers put windows on some of the reasonable android tablet hardware out already?

Musicrab

Can Chromecast, there are limitations to that though.

Micro usb to hdmi adapter around £4.

My Linx 8 with 1GB of ram was rather nippy. For general use it seemed as slick as my Surface Pro with 4GB. So my question would be, would that extra 1GB ram make a noticeable difference or would Windows just gobble it up?

My uses for this tablet would only be web browsing emails and the odd puzzle game. Im not planning any demanding tasks for this.

The Dell Venue 8 Pro model with the 3G (had Dell Wireless 5570 HSPA+ mobile broadband MiniCard) functionality has GPS. It's more expensive. Best offers are on Dell Outlet where price fluctuates over time.

Does this support usb charging ?

Micro usb to hdmi adapter around £4.


you sure it has video out and sound out on the USB port?
from the description sounds like it is for data transfer only

Looking at getting one of these but there's very little online regarding reviews etc. How are you finding the battery life? Looking at the specs it's a 3000mah battery which isn't a lot. Is the low resolution noticeable on that screen size? Thankyou in advance.
