Lenovo Miix 510 review: A Surface Pro 4 clone that's (almost) better than the real thing


The Miix 510 tablet PC looks a lot like its Microsoft competitor, but its unique features and a lower price could make it a better option.

The good-looking hinged kickstand has a lot of positioning flexibility. Has a USB-C port for video output and peripherals with adapters. Unlike Microsoft, Lenovo includes a generally excellent backlit keyboard cover. Lenovo's Active Pen and palm...

The fans can get a little too loud for quiet environments. No memory card slot for expansion. The Active Pen is a $40 extra and its included holder blocks the power jack. The tiny right-hand shift key is horrible.

The Lenovo Miix 510 is an excellent -- and more affordable -- alternative to Microsoft's 2-in-1 tablet PC. And it might be the better choice for you.

Lenovo Miix 510 Review


Detachable 2-in-1 laptops try to do the job of both a tablet and a notebook. The Lenovo Miix 510 doesn't quite deliver the best of both worlds. While this slick-looking hybrid offers fast performance and a colorful display, the machine's battery life...

Terrific detachable display; Speedy performance; Premium-looking design

Short battery life; Poorly laid-out keyboard; Unimpressive sound

The Lenovo Miix 510 is a detachable 2-in-1 with a fantastic display and lackluster battery life.

Lenovo Miix 510 Review


The Lenovo Miix 510 looks like a worthy successor to the Surface Pro 4. Read on to find out if the premium look and feel of the silver magnesium-alloy unibody design is enough to seal the deal.

Review: Lenovo Miix 510 2-in-1 Windows 10 PC


Lenovo 's latest 2-in-1 PC is, like others before it, composed of two parts: a tablet portion and a detachable keyboard. When connected together, the sum total of parts that is the Miix 510 form a quasi-laptop; when separated, though, you have a highly...

Excellent display ; Attractive, premium design ; Velvet-like slip cover ; Very sturdy hinge with ample viewing angles

Some flex in keyboard when typing ; Keyboard layout requires some adjustment ; Battery life is somewhat disappointing

The Lenovo Miix 510 isn’t a Surface, but it’s a suitable substitution. Lenovo’s latest 2-in-1 PC packs a bunch of features we’re excited to see, wrapping them all up in a stylish shell. The display is great, as is the kickstand and overall design, and...

Lenovo Miix 510 Pro 80U10006GE Convertible Review


Surface Follower. A 2-in-1 following in the footsteps of the MS Surface Pro 4 will likely be compared to it. Lenovo's convertible features better connectivity and a better SSD, but the display and the cameras are lacking.

good keyboard, Type-A and Type-C USB, sturdy, upscale construction, option for LTE, usable main camera, good microphone

display not very vivid, PWM at and below 90 % brightness, fan always on during idle / when connected to power, no monitor-out, mediocre webcam, battery life not that great

We appreciate the high build quality and the good keyboard, but are less impressed with the small clickpad. The application performance is excellent, even though the CPU only runs at the nominal frequency during the benchmark tests. Thanks to the...

Lenovo Miix 510 2-in-1 PC review: Great performance and good features


Lenovo isn't shy about coming out with different types of laptops, tablets, and 2 in 1 PCs. Having something for everyone out there these days, they're good at being cost efficient while having some pretty good specs. The Lenovo Miix 510 is just that 2...

Design is pretty cool, the display is good at any viewing angle, Windows 10 runs smooth with no hiccups

The camera isn't the greatest, the keyboard can get annoying with the right Shift key being small as it may not be for everyone

The Lenovo Miix 510 is a flexible 2 in 1 PC with a sleek design and great specs that gives you the ability to sketch whatever you'd like with the optional Lenovo Active Pen.

Lenovo Miix 510 2-in-1 PC review: Great performance and good features


The Lenovo Miix 510 is just that 2 in 1 that could be your next computer with its decent price tag and high end specs plus the optional active pen.

Design is pretty cool, the display is good at any viewing angle, Windows 10 runs smooth with no hiccups.

The camera isn't the greatest, the keyboard can get annoying with the right Shift key being small as it may not be for everyone.

At the end of the day the Miix 510 is a great 2 in 1 PC, but for the price it may be a turn off to some. Even so, there are plenty of pros that can make you look away from the price such as the 12.2″ FHD+ display, optional Active Pen to sketch,...

Lenovo Miix 510 review: An affordable homage to the Surface Pro 4


Lenovo's Miix series sits in its Ideapad line, and so might not be a professional's first port of call when looking for a laptop. But these two-in-one laptop/tablet hybrids come in three sizes, and may well be worth checking out. The 12.2-inch Miix 510...

Solid aluminium backplate ; Well-designed kickstand ; Good-quality IPS screen ; Active Pen stylus is bundled

Lenovo Miix 510 Review and Ratings


A 2-in-1 that actually works well as both a tablet and a laptop, the Miix 510 is a detachable that genuinely lets you leave your full-size laptop at home.

Attractive looks ; Nice, responsive touch display ; Both Type-A and Type-C USB 3.0 ports

So-so battery life ; Loud fans ; A few quirks in the keyboard layout

While the Lenovo Miix 510 isn’t a perfect 2-in-1, it is a very good one. No, it didn’t top our performance charts. But its performance nevertheless felt nice and zippy in our everyday use. Its 12.2-inch touch screen looks great and was consistently...

Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 510 Review: The Bold & The Familiar


I can’t argue that the Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 510 is better than the Surface Pro 4 for every type of user. It weighs more than the Surface and gets hours less battery life. You can’t log in with your eyes or your fingers. It’s heavier and thicker than its...
