When you’re competing with the iPad, you’ve got to make something that isn’t just good enough — you have to make the user fall in love with the product.
When I first saw Lenovo’s ThinkPad 8 in this year’s CES coverage, I was intrigued.
It’s a tablet that’s about the same size as an iPad Mini, but it’s running a full version of Windows 8 and has specs that can keep up with many laptops on the market.
With its HDMI port and Bluetooth, you could easily use it as a desktop running all the software you need for work. You’re basically getting a full PC and a tablet together for $US399.
While we haven’t spent enough time with the device to give it a full review, we do have some initial thoughts after unboxing and setting up the tablet.
