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.

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

Optical DriveNone Price;$959.99 VS Microsoft Surface Pro Making your mind up about the Surface Pro is less about what it is and what it does and more about what you want out of a tablet. As a hybrid PC it's an undeniable compromise - but that's no bad thing.The Microsoft Surface Pro fits a full ultrabook experience in a compact 10-inch tablet. Thanks to the ingenious Type and Touch covers, it offers a comfortable interface and typing experience. The clean, crisp design and sharp 1080p screen rise above the competition.
But, The battery life is disappointing, and more ports would be nice. The 64GB model barely has any free storage. It costs as much as a regular laptop, especially because the cool keyboard cover isn't included by default.
The bottom line: The Surface Pro's gutsy design successfully reinvents the Windows 8 laptop by cramming an ultrabook experience into the body of a 10-inch tablet. Those wanting to go all-in on the tablet experience won't regret buying the Surface Pro, but we're holding out for a future, more polished generation of the device.
