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

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.

Pros
  • 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
Cons
  • 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
