Lenovo Miix2 10 “Review – Many pixels ‘on the side’




Lenovo has the 10 “-Miix2 a convertible, for there ‘was built. The included keyboard dock is practical and used in different ways. Unfortunately, that think you are tied to one viewing angle. The strongest point of the convertible is the screen with IPS panel and a high resolution of 1920×1200 pixels. Additionally, the included license for Office 2013 is a big plus.’s Miix2 is more expensive than the competition, but therefore has a better screen and a good battery life.

Cheap 10 “laptops are back with a vengeance. Asus has been selling for a while the Transformer T100, Acer Aspire Switch and Lenovo also has its own convertible tablet developed in the form of Miix2 10”. Lenovo differentiates itself from competitors with both a light keyboard docking station, in which the tablet can be in two ways. In addition, Lenovo additional speakers incorporated in the dock and the tablet comes standard with a 10 “screen with a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels. You just have to be handled fairly deep into their pockets, and in this review we see whether the price of its Miix2 worth five hundred euros.

Asus and Acer deliver their convertibles with hinged keyboard docks, but Lenovo has come up with something else. The keyboard is provided with a recess where the tablet fits in two ways: in ‘laptop’- and’ stand’ mode. In both modes, the tablet with fairly strong magnets neatly drawn to the center of the stand, so you really can not put down. Him wrong

Although the gully only three millimeters deep, the tablet turns in both positions sturdy enough to stand in order to use the touchscreen. In a normal way In the position mode, Lenovo also provides a little extra, in the form of a “subwoofer”. Behind the perforated raised edge of the dock is an additional speaker which bass should add to the sound of the shrill-sounding loudspeakers in the tablet. In practice, most of them are more sound to come out of the tablet, but the quality does not subwoofertje much.

Are you ready to work, then you can more or less tablet ‘to collapse’. There is no hinge to pass, but a second magnet in the lip of the dock pulls the tablet firmly against the keyboard. In this way, tablet and dock easy to carry, and the screen is well protected during transport.

Thanks to the non-hinged dock, grab the tablet easy out are standard for example, to continue working in the bank, but the dock also has its drawbacks. Like the first-generation Microsoft Surface tablet you’re bound to one angle and in most cases the tablet upright in the stand to be nice to be able to work. Fortunately, he includes a ips screen, making the image under oblique angles remains clear.
Keyboard and touchpad

The Miix keyboard is more compact than the keyboards you at most 10 “laptops encounter, due to the space reserved to drop. Tablet in order to compensate for the limited space Lenovo has the upper row of keys, with the F-keys, together with the numerical keys from. Who often key combinations used with F-keys, this is not the most practical solution. Our test Miix was equipped with a keyboard with a French layout, so some keys even four functions had.

When typing, the keyboard feels stable, but with sturdy springs typing it in, allowing the tablet to wobble with. The keys have not pressed too far by the thinness of the dock, so you’re better off for typing long pieces of text with a separate keyboard.

The touchpad does like the keyboard what to do, but is on the small side and ensures that the dock properly sag when pressing the mouse buttons. Fine for the go so, but for long term use, we would connect an external mouse.
Connections and software

The connections that you will find on the Miix tablet, hardly differ from those of most Windows tablets. The left side houses a micro HDMI port and a USB mini-B connector to connect when the tablet is not in the dock. USB peripherals An OTG -kabeltje unfortunately not included, so you have little out of the box to the USB port. A micro sd card reader is neatly tucked away behind the door next to the HDMI connector. Fortunately, the dock does have two full size USB ports. Unfortunately, does not support either USB 3.0 ports, so the copying of large files such as movies take some time.

Not unique, but worth mentioning is the Office 2013 license, which is included free with the Miix2. The license, which release a euro or a hundred takes, includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.
