Lenovo would look to bring forth a spin-off of the 8-inch Miix 2 tablet nearly one year after the second-gen’s release.
The equivalent of roughly $240 (Yuan 1,499) doesn’t sound particularly economical. But since the Miix 2 still costs north of $400 on Asian shores and a measly $220 stateside, chances are the fresh budget contender shall go for less than $200 when it ultimately decides to pursue its American dream.
With a beefed-up quad-core Intel Bay Trail-T processor inside and 2 generous gigs of RAM, the Lenovo Miix 3 doesn’t look so humble at a first glance. But as you slowly round up its other specifications, you’ll understand why it’s not really worth more than two Benjamins.
The 7.85-inch IPS screen is, well, pretty crappy, sporting 1,024 x 768 pixels resolution and an odd 4:3 aspect ratio.
The only other strong suit I can think of is the pre-loaded Windows 8.1 OS, while the dual 2 MP cameras, 7-hour battery, 375 grams weight and 9.2 mm profile all fall under flaws.
