The Lenovo MIIX 700 is a brand-new laptop-tablet hybrid announced by the company with versatility in mind. The device has a built-in kickstand, stylus and a keyboard dock allowing the user to switch quickly between work and play.
The Lenovo Ideapad MIIX 700 has a design similar to the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. It features a 12 inch display with a 2160 x 1440 pixel resolution, 256GB of SSD storage, Intel's Real Sense 3D camera, LTE connectivity, and a 6th-generation Intel Core M processor with 8GB of RAM. The slate has two USB ports – one supporting USB 3.0, the other – USB 2.0; a micro HDMI port, and microSD for storage expansion. Windows 10 comes pre-installed with the MIIX 700.
Lenovo will be packaging this offering at $699 and will include the keyboard dock with the tablet, unlike Microsoft, who expects users to purchase the Keyboard cover for the Surface separately. There will also be a fully maxed-out version of the MIIX 700, but there is no word on how much it will cost. Lenovo is planning for a November release, so we suppose more details will emerge closer to its launch.
