Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx Windows 8 Tablet Review

We have seen quite a few Windows 8 tablets emerge since CES. These tablets gives users the full Windows 8 experience on a slate device that they can easily take with them. Microsoft’s own Surface Pro has a very expensive price tag of $899. For those not looking to shell out that much money for a Windows 8 tablet experience Lenovo has a few different options. Today we are taking a look at their IdeaTab Lynx, which at $499 is a much less expensive option. It features an Intel Atom Z2760 (1.8 GHz) processor, 2GB of DDR3 memory and a 64GB solid state drive under the hood. On the exterior you have an 11.6-inch 5-point touch IPS panel with a resolution of 1366 x 768. Most importantly this tablet runs the full version of Windows 8 making it a great solution for those looking to be productive on the road.

On the front is a simple photo of the device and a small IdeaTab logo on the bottom right. On the back is a small sticker that has all of the specs. For those wondering this is the model: K3011W.
