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.

Just last month, we checked out the well-rounded performer in the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2, which did justice in the tablet market with its long withstanding ThinkPad brand. However, if you're still itching to save some money on a Windows 8 tablet,...

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...

Final ThoughtsWhen it comes down to it the IdeaTab Lynx is a great Windows 8 tablet that any user is going to enjoy. I think the most compelling thing about the Lynx is the price. At $499 you are getting a great tablet that is going to run full Windows...

Bright 11.6inch IPS display, – Runs full Windows 8, – Long battery life, – Responsive touch panel, – Micro USB to USB adapter included, – Optional keyboard dock, – Price

No second camera, – No fullsized USB port, – Lower quality construction

Thin and light, long battery life, optional keyboard dock doubles battery life

Not a gorgeous design, keyboard dock could have more ports

The Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx offers all the things we like about Intel Atom Windows 8 tablets: long battery life, silent operation, long standby and a thin and light design. But its looks detract from an otherwise solid experience, and I fear that it may...

Lenovo's Atom-based Windows 8 tablet-laptop hybrid is lightweight and usable, but build quality doesn't cut it. Here's our Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx review.

Expert review by:

Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx

 

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.

Via CNET.com

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.
