[MWC 2017] One of the benefits of owning a detachable tablet/laptop is the fact that it is flexible. This means that in the event that you don’t want the device too take up too much table space, or if you want something easier to carry, just remove the keyboard and you’re good to go.
Or if you want higher productivity and hate typing using the on-screen keyboard, then attach the keyboard and you’re all set. If you’re after such a device then you might be interested to learn that at MWC 2017, Lenovo has taken the wraps off their latest offering which comes in the form of the Lenovo Miix 320.
As you can see from the photos, this is a detachable device that can either double up as a laptop or a tablet depending on your needs. Best of all it is powered by Windows 10 which means that all your productivity apps and other pieces of software that you might rely on on your computer will be usable on the Miix 320.
In terms of specs, we’re looking at an Intel Atom X5 processor and Intel HD graphics. It will also support up to 4GB of RAM, 128GB of eMMC storage, Dolby Advanced Audio speakers, and it will also feature a 10.1-inch 1920×1200 display. Lenovo is also boasting that it will come with a battery that should last users up to 10 hours. In terms of pricing, the Miix 320 isn’t expensive at all:
Lenovo has announced that the tablet with the keyboard attachment will be priced starting at $200 (WiFi-only model) and will be available come April 2017. There will be another version that comes bundled with Active Pen support and Microsoft Office 365 (12 month subscription) that will be available in July 2017, but no word on pricing for that model yet.
