Lenovo Miix 2 11-inch vs Dell Venue 11 Pro vs Acer Iconia W700:Who is the best?

W.A.Khan,                                                                                                                                                 Lenovo Miix 2 11-inch                                                                                                                               The Lenovo Miix 2 is essentially a tablet loaded with the full version of Microsoft's OS (Windows 8.1, to be exact). It comes with its own custom dock that gives it a full keyboard plus some extra ports.The 10.1-inch feels like Microsoft’s Surface 2 tablet, with an angular complexion and sharp corners, but it’s using plastic in place of aluminum in a 1.3 pound package. It’s not heavy, but it’s not surprisingly light either, it feels about right for this type of size.The Lenovo Miix 2 11 is an Windows 8.1 tablet with 11.6" screen with 1920x1200 resolution powered by an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Its other features included a 5-megapixel shooter on the back, 2-megapixel unit on the front, Wi-Fi and HDMI,.It's also available in 3G or Wi-Fi only and comes with JBL speakers,This keyboard seems to be a better solution than the folio-style keyboard case that was available for the original Miix and is closer to what you could get with the ThinkPad Tablet 2. It's sturdier, so you should be able to more easily use it on your lap and there's a built-in touch pad.Lenovo claims Miix 2 is capable of providing up to 8 hours of battery life on a single charge.                                                                                                                                                      Specifications

You can use it as a typical Windows 8.1 tablet, snap it into a keyboard dock and use it like a laptop, or remotely connect it to a dock hooked up to a monitor or TV to play movies and TV shows on a larger screen.Dell says it has "The power of an Ultrabook, performance of a desktop, portability of a tablet."The Venue 11 Pro is unmatched for practicality. There's a mini-HDMI output; a 3.5mm headset jack; a full-sized USB 3 port; a volume rocker switch; and a Kensington lock slot.The rear panel pops off to allow access to the 32Wh battery, and in a welcome change from its predecessor, the Latitude 10, the Venue 11 Pro charges via micro-USB.The Venue 11 Pro10.8-inch a Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) IPS display and will be offered with Intel's Atom quad-core Bay Trail processors or a fourth-generation Haswell processor up to Core i5 -- supporting up to 8GB RAM, 256GB of storage, WiDi and NFC.With the big screen and quad-core processor you’ll get around eight hours of mixed use from a single charge, and a little more if you turn down the brightness and avoid using Wi-Fi. That’s better than the Surface Pro 2, though not the ARM-powered Surface 2. Eight to nine hours is more than adequate for a day of work, and the Venue 11 Pro has one advantage in that you can remove the back cover and replace the battery with a spare – a real rarity in the tablet world.One thing that sets the Venue 11 Pro apart, however, is that the back cover can flip off, revealing a removable battery. Both versions of the tablet are pen-enabled, and each includes an 8-megapixel back camera. Accessories include a $99 dock that allows you to push the tablet's display to a larger monitor, a keyboard with a back stand, and a full keyboard dock with USB ports.Price:$500.
VS                                                                                                                                                           Acer Iconia W700                                                                                                                                   The Acer Iconia W700 can work as a tablet or a small desktop, and it has a high-res screen and excellent battery life.The tablet's performance was also responsible for a lot of that joy. With an Intel Core i5-3317U at the helm, along with 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM, Intel HD 4000 graphics and a 128GB solid state drive, the Iconia W700 can give laptops a run for their money when it comes to speed. It had no problems streaming video from the Web (from paid services such as NBA.TV, as well as YouTube and Vimeo), and it was responsive when it came to browsing Web pages, loading apps and flicking through photos. It really is perfect for media consumption.Acer claims the Acer Iconia W700 battery (4,850mAh capacity) battery lasts eight hours. This is a little optimistic. We found it was closer to six hours during normal, everyday use. Were it a laptop that would be ok, but it's not great for a tablet and unlike most tablets it has a proper dedicated charger - it doesn't charge via USB.
But, The non-adjustable stand limits viewing angles, and you'll need an external mouse or touch pad for efficient Windows navigation.
The bottom line: One of the only Core i5 slate-style Windows 8 systems we've seen, the Acer Iconia W700 asks few compromises for full-time use, but the design isn't for everyone.                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Specifications
