TechSpot: Lenovo Miix 2 8 Review

Even though Windows 8 has been out for some time now, it's been only since late last year that we started to see 8-inch Windows tablets headed to market. The Miix 2 8 isn’t geared up for high performance tasks, nor does it have top-end features, but its use of an Intel Atom x86-capable processor and 1280 x 800 display present very decent value for the tablet’s $240 asking price (originally it was $300).

The use of aluminum as part of the Miix 2 8’s slim design is great to see, and its overall size is quite comfortable, striking a great mix between portability and usability. All of this is complemented by Windows 8.1 itself, which may not have the greatest selection of touch-enabled apps, but does have a fantastic range of built-in features for power users. Unfortunately, though, we encountered with one major deal breaker during our time with the Miix 2 8.

I do find the touch screen response is frustrating. When I try to close tabs, windows, or click on links. I find I have to tap numerous times more often than not.

I would like to be able to install an SD card and have it be detected as a non removable drive instead of making it a Virtual Drive.

I give the device an 80..

I'm used my Miix 2 to leave a comment.

A BIOS update should fix whatever Keyboard issues you're having on the device..
I can't say I've had any real issues with my Venue 8 Pro. last BIOS update from Dell for
the Venue 8 Pro was yesterday in fact

There is nothing wrong with the touch screen. This is a user error, he clearly doesn't know how windows 8.1 touch keyboard works.
If you "slide" on keys, you actually type characters that are "hidden" and that you normally need to press and hold to be access, "slide" is a shortcut.
