Engadget Summary

With its low price and decent performance, the Miix 2 8 from Lenovo is an affordable tablet option for who need a Windows 8 tablet that won't the bank.

The 8-inch display doesn't have the resolution chops to hang with the Nexus 7 or iPad Air, but it still has "excellent color and contrast," according to PC Mag. And thanks to that 8-inch display, TechSpot finds it "thin and reasonably light."

That portable exterior is joined on the inside by an Intel Atom processor and 2GB of RAM -- which isn't much, but it's just enough to take care of your daily needs, with PC World finding the performance "impressive" while TechRadar says it's "solid and dependable," though multitasking too much can "slow things down quite dramatically." As long as you keep your expectations in check, the 8-inch Miix 2 is a reasonable Windows 8.1 tablet at a reasonable cost.
