Lenovo ThinkPad 8 review: sharp screen, worst-in-class battery life

 

Not long ago, I vowed to review every 8-inch Windows tablet. That's partly because they're popular, sure, but there was another reason, too: Their specs

Full HD display -- a rarity among 8-inch Windows tablets ; One of the only tablets this size offered with 128GB of built-in storage ; Thin and light, even for a small-screened tablet

Worst-in-class battery life ; Expensive compared to other 8-inch Windows tablets ; Aluminum case scratches easily, as does the screen ; Backside can get quite hot ; Slower-than-average boot-up time

With a high price and worst-in-class battery life, the ThinkPad 8 should be the first 8-inch Windows tablet you cross off your shopping list. Though not terrible in its own right, other small-screened slates offer more value for less money.

Lenovo ThinkPad 8 Review

 

Among the series of laptops Lenovo has introduced over the past handful of months lies a small Windows 8.1 tablet, the ThinkPad 8. With the tablet comes a small form factor and a unique Quickshot cover, the most notable feature of the device. How does...

Lenovo has a winner with the ThinkPad 8 -- it's designed in such a way that it feels very portable, yet the quality display and use of Windows 8.1 means it can be used for business tasks that your average Android slate might not be up for. The...

Lenovo ThinkPad 8 review: Fancier CPU and display take a toll on battery life

 

Your eyes will love the crisp 1900x1200-pixel resolution on the ThinkPad 8, even with the power-consumption tradeoff.

Fast Intel Atom processor ; Crisp 1900-by-1200-pixel display ; Excellent build quality

Lower-than-average battery life ; Awkward I/O port locations ; No digitizing pen or keyboard-case options

Lenovo’s ThinkPad 8 offers many advantages over competing 8 inch Windows tablets, including a faster processor, more storage, and a higher-resolution screen. But it comes up short when it comes to battery

Lenovo ThinkPad 8

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad 8 is an 8-inch Windows tablet that puts your work into a handheld PC you can slip into a coat pocket. It's not a replacement for your work system, but it's an excellent companion to it.

Small 8-inch form factor is truly portable. All-day battery life. QuickShot cover makes photos a snap. Professional, yet affordable

QuickShot smart cover is optional (and extra). No physical keyboard option. Few ports and connections available

The newest category to spring up in Microsoft's world of Windows tablet PCs is the 8-inch tablet—small enough to be held in one hand and let you take Windows 8 on the go. The Lenovo ThinkPad 8 ($534, as tested) is Lenovo's first 8-inch tablet for the...

Lenovo ThinkPad 8 Review

 

By the time Microsoft got Windows 8 up and fighting on 10-inch tablets that compete with the iPad, the battlefield had already shifted to a new breed of smaller, 8-inch tablets. With Windows 8.1, Microsoft's operating system can finally operate on an...

1080p screen ; 8-inch size is comfortable to hold ; Good battery life for Windows ; MicroSD slot for expanded memory ; Universal USB charging

Some menus are too small to use comfortably ; Windows 8.1 apps are scarce and lacking ; 7-8 hour battery life lower than Android and iPad ; No stylus ; Volume toggle squeaks when pressed

Lenovo’s ThinkPad 8 is a fantastic tablet, but it’s let down by it’s operating system, Windows 8.1, which lags behind the competition.

Lenovo ThinkPad 8 review

 

Windows 8.1 is in the throes of an identity crisis. The operating system meant to usher in the future of computing found itself mired in the present, installed on laptops and desktops where its hyper-connected, touch-friendly interface didn't fit quite...

Great display ; Solid, premium design ; Incredibly long "can-do" list

Mediocre battery life ; Jack of all trades, master of none ; Desktop mode is unusable on such a small screen

More than a tablet, not quite a PC

Lenovo ThinkPad 8 Review

 

A full-HD display, aluminum design and USB 3.0 connectivity help the ThinkPad 8 stand out, but it could use more endurance.

Slim and sturdy design; Rich full-HD display; Sharp 8-MP camera; USB 3.0 allows for versatile docking; Clever optional cover

Below-average battery life; Speakers not very loud; A bit pricey

A full-HD display, aluminum design and USB 3.0 connectivity help the ThinkPad 8 stand out, but it could use more endurance.

Lenovo ThinkPad 8

 

Windows 8 computers have slowly been getting smaller: the 8-inch full Windows barrier had been cracked most recently by the Dell Venue 8 Pro , and Toshiba Encore 8 , both of which were a bit better than previous 8-inch models. So, if you ever wanted a...

The Lenovo ThinkPad 8 runs full Windows 8.1, has an excellent higher-res 8.3-inch display, 64GB of storage standard, all the basic ports you'd need, and fits into a super-slim package.

More expensive than other 8-inch Windows tablets; doesn’t come with a stylus, or keyboard; other tablets have better battery life.

If you’re craving full Windows 8 on a tablet the size of an iPad Mini, and want a great display, the ThinkPad 8 is one of the best we’ve seen...but not by much.
