In Pictures: Lenovo Miix 2

Windows 8.1 and Office Home on an 8-inch touchscreen tablet for under $300

RECORDING SOUND/VIDEO WAS LESS THAN IDEAL I recorded audio of myself speaking, using the Windows 8 app Sound Recorder and the Miix 2’s built-in mic. The resulting clips had a low buzzing in the background. I plugged a microphone into the audio connector, tried again, and got the same buzzing. This noise wasn’t terribly distracting, but it was obvious. I recorded a few video clips with the cameras, and found that there was a low fluttering sound in the audio when the clips were played back, whether the clip was recorded using the tablet’s built-in mic or an external microphone. The volume level of this flutter was faint, not as loud as the buzzing from the audio-only recordings.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
