Lenovo’s Miix2 Is An 8-Inch Windows 8.1 Slate Packing Intel’s Bay Trail Quad Core

Lenovo announced a new Windows 8.1 tablet to its lineup with the Miix2, an 8-inch device that comes with an optional cover and a stylus. The successor to the Lenovo Miix, the Mixx2 will ship with Windows 8.1 on board, with all that entails, and it boasts some impressive specs, too.

The device rocks a quad-core Intel Bay Trail-T with integrated Intel HD graphics (Gen7) with a 10-point multitouch (1280x800) IPS display, and it includes up to 128GB of eMMC storage (with a microSD slot for another 32GB), 2GB of LP-DDR3 memory, and 2MP front and 5MP rear cameras.

For connectivity, the Miix2 features 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 3G-GPS3, and Bluetooth 4.0, and battery life is listed as 7 hours. It comes loaded with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013, which is a nice bonus, and the optional cover doubles as a stand.

The Lenovo Miix2 costs just $299 (32GB version) or $349 (64GB version), and the cover with the stylus is only another $20.

Now this is a Windows Tablet that I can support (and afford). Although I have doubts that 2 gigs of memory is enough to smoothly run 8.1.
