Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx


Comparing the roughly half-dozen Intel Atom Windows 8 tablets that we've seen to date is relatively easy. Nearly all of them, from the HP Envy X2 to the Dell Latitude 10, are built around essentially identical hardware platforms, starting with an Intel...

The IdeaTab Lynx is well-balanced when plugged into its keyboard base, and offers good battery life, and a bigger-screen alternative to Lenovo's other Atom tablet.

The keyboard has too much flex, and the docking hinge sticks. For only a little more, better products are available.

The IdeaTab Lynx is a perfectly functional Windows 8 hybrid but lacks the lower price of some competitors, or better design and features of others.

Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx Review


Over the past two months we've seen several Intel Atom-based tablets, each giving us serious netbook flashbacks with their 10-inch displays. The Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx has almost identical specs with a big exception: This tablet has an 11.6-inch display....

Lightweight and thin ; Includes USB dongle ; Good battery life

Build quality doesn't feel sturdy ; Widescreen aspect ratio throws off balance ; Few ports ; Narrow viewing angles ; Windows 8 not a good tablet OS

The Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx is a decidedly middle of the road tablet: slow performance, decent battery life, so-so screen.

Affordable price point compared to other Windows 8 tablets ; Great battery life ; Nearly zero bloatware

Sluggish performance with intensive tasks ; Bland and boring design ; Low quality construction

Seriously, if saving money is all that you care about, there's no arguing that you'll be doing just that with the Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx. Despite its less than appetizing design combined with its entry-level specs, the Lynx is able to deliver the same...

Lenovo makes a wide range of tablets running both Windows 8 and Windows RT, as well as some cheaper Android tablets too. However, the new Lynx is a top-of-the-range Windows 8 model that focuses on stylish design and entertainment features.

If you specifically require a tablet that runs Windows 8 then the slimline design and striking IPS display of the Lynx make it one of the better options currently available. However, it’s quite expensive on its own – especially given the modest memory...

Lenovo offers up a Windows 8 tablet that runs the full version of the new operating system, with an IPS display and an Atom processor.


Consumer review by:

"A half-baked idea from Microsoft and Lenovo."


The bonehead charging/USB design from Microsoft and Lenovo overrides anything good about the tablet.

Full Windows 8.

Consumer review by:

"Super tablet but the dock needs improvement."


GREAT PRICE ($349 for both tablet and keyboard dock), GREAT battery (with keyboard, 16 hours),and 2 USB 2.0 ports. ultra-thin too!

The keyboard takes a bit of time getting used to and the touchpad is bit to small. Does not come preloaded with

Consumer review by:

"Very cool and useful tablet."


I chose to the get the Lenovo over the

Very light.

The optional keyboard keys has so much flex that it makes it difficult to type.
