Lenovo Miix vs Acer Iconia W510 vs Dell XPS 10:Best performer is...................................

W.A.Khan,                                                                                                                                                 Lenovo Miix                                                                                                                                               The Lenovo Miix, a 10-inch Windows 8 tablet with its own keyboard case, is like the consumer version of the ThinkPad Tablet 2, with slightly different accessory hardware.The Lenovo Miix is smart, light, reasonably well-made and comes with an excellent keyboard to help you to use it like a laptop. The potential is here for it to be a great mobile work machine, provided you don't need to run anything too intensive.The 10.1-inch, 1,366x768-pixel-resolution, 16:9 IPS display supports five-finger multitouch, and the 10.1-millimeter-thin, 1.27-pound design resembles that of other thin and lower-power Windows 8 tablets.The Lenovo Miix uses the Intel Atom Z2760 processor, which is a 1.8GHz dual-core chip, though it does feature Hyper-Threading, so can act as four virtual cores..This is all backed up with 2GB of RAM, which is very favourable compared to other tablets.64GB of eMMC storage, a microSD card slot that can support an additional 32GB of memory, a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera, a Micro-USB 2.0 connector, a Micro-HDMI port, and Bluetooth 4.0 plus 802.11n Wi-Fi. The front-facing camera's only 1 megapixel, suitable for Web chat but not much else. There's an optional 3G micro-SIM port, too.Battery life is respectable, but not outstanding.  We got just over 6.5 hours (400mins) of streaming video out of the Miix, and you could probably stretch that closer to eight hours for lighter work, but that’s not particularly impressive when larger Haswell laptops can now offer 10 or more hours between charges.
 VS                                                                                                                                                           Acer Iconia W510                                                                                                                                  The Acer Iconia W510 is less expensive than some other Atom-based hybrids, and its detachable tablet screen is light and portable.10.1-inch IPS screen, 1366 x 768; Dual-core 1.8GHz Atom, 2GB of RAM, 32/64GB SSD; 295 degree twist hinge turns keyboard into stand; Up to 18hrs battery life; Windows 8 convertible with keyboard dockThe Iconia W510 is so very portable. At 10.1-inches and weighing less than two pounds, it fits easily in a bag or large purse, and you'll likely forget you're even carrying it. Battery life is excellent.
But, In laptop mode, the system is awkwardly top-heavy, and the puny keyboard and touch pad are not designed for serious use.
The bottom line: Offering low-powered Intel Atom tablet/laptop hybrids for $750 or more is a dodgy proposition for budget-looking systems such as the Iconia W510, but all-day battery life is a great selling point.

In a mixed usage manual test, the XPS 10 tablet on its own lasted around nine hours. That’s a similar result to what we saw with the Microsoft Surface, and is good going for any tablet.The huge battery life is truly impressive, and it gives us hope that a concerted push from Microsoft could give Windows RT a future.In tablet mode, the Dell XPS 10 is enjoyable to hold and use, and the screen is adequate for day-to-day use, though media connoisseurs will miss the Retina-competing panels of its competitors..
But, There are a few annoying performance bugs. The base tablet doesn’t have as many ports as the Surface RT. It lacks a kickstand and its keyboard isn’t as comfortable to type on.
The bottom line: The Dell XPS 10 is a valiant effort at a Windows RT tablet but doesn’t pack enough value into its base package to favorably compete with the Surface RT.                                                                   Specifications
