Lenovo Miix 10 review: A good tablet with an (optional) killer keyboard

Lenovo is known for building notebooks with exquisite keyboards, but the company is also no stranger to the tablet game. It has also introduced pioneering convertibles, such as the Yoga 11s and the newer Flex 14. The Miix 10 should be the culmination of that experience, but this hybrid falls short. The Miix 10’s specs are par for the course—if you’re playing last year’s course. The 64GB of storage and 2GB of RAM are to be expected, but the Clover Trail-based Atom Z2760 at the heart of this device is a generation behind. Most of Lenovo’s competitors have moved on to Bay Trail chips that deliver higher performance and longer battery life. During my testing, I encountered several frustrating slowdowns that didn’t happen with the Bay Trail-based Asus Transformer Book T100, which uses a newer Atom Z3740 processor. And in our benchmark tests, the Miix 10 proved to be 10 to 20 percent slower than the Asus Transformer Book T100. ROBERT CARDINLenovo’s keyboard case is exquisite. Unfortunately, it adds $100 to an already high price tag. The Miix 10 also delivered less battery life than the Asus hybrid: 8 hours and 22 minutes. While it sounds odd to call 8-plus hours “short,” the Bay Trail-equipped Asus delivered more than 11 hours of useful life.
