Make side Microsoft; you’ve got the competition from another Windows tablet – Lenovo Miix 720. Right before the world could get a glance at Microsoft’s new Surface Pro 5 tablet, Lenovo has launched its 12-inch Windows tablet packed with latest features.
Similar to Surface Pro, the Lenovo Miix 720 has a detachable keyboard cover with touchpad and a foldable kickstand that can adjust the tab at a viewing angle up to 150 degrees. It is loaded with Windows 10 and comes with a metal alloy chassis with a thickness measuring just 14.6mm (including keyboard) and it weighing only 1.1Kg.
The Lenovo Miix 720 2-in-1 portable laptop is powered by the latest Intel Core i7 processor and sports a 12-inch Quad HD display with a resolution of 2880×1920 pixels. Unlike Surface tablets, at the base price of $999, Lenovo Miix 720 comes including a detachable full-size keyboard with a touchpad.
The top variant comes up with 16GB RAM and 1TB of Solid State drive, although you have to pay way more than the starting price of $999 for this variant. The tablet also sports an infrared camera enabling Windows Hello which allows the users to unlock the device just by looking at it. On the back, it has a 5MP camera.
Talking about connectivity, apart from housing a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, microSD slot and an audio jack, the Lenovo Miix 720 also flaunts a Thunderbolt 3 port which supports up to two external display. Thunderbolt 3 port also supports data transfer speed up to 40GBps which is way faster than all other ports.
Coming on to the battery section, the company claims it to provide 8 hours of battery life on a single charge. The Lenovo Miix 720 also comes with an optional Active Pen 2 stylus which will be available to buy starting from February for $60.
