Bad: Questionable battery life
Lenovo lists that the ThinkPad 8’s battery can run up to 8 hours on a full charge. In terms of real-world usage, this may be questionable. By my estimate from having used this tablet to surf the web, run programs, play and record some media (while fully shutting Windows 8.1 Pro down, then starting it up between my usage sessions), I got barely over 5 hours of use. Keep in mind I was purposely using this tablet “out of the box” with Windows 8.1 Pro set at its defaults. Some improvements could probably be achieved by adjusting certain things, or uninstalling certain programs.
