Lenovo Miix 300. Solid spec’s on this budget 8-inch Windows tablet.

Posted on 04 March 2015 by

I took a look at the Lenovo Miix 300 after it launched at MWC on Sunday and I was impressed to see such good specifications for a $149 Windows 8 tablet. There are a few things missing though.

Lenovo Miix 300 is low-cost but still has 2GB RAM

I handled a Lenovo Miix 300 with 2GB RAM and 32GB of storage and the quoted price was $149 which is competitive. The screen was OK and the battery size, 17 Wh, is good. On the downside though there’s a basic case design and there’s no HDMI output. Weight is good.

There’s nothing ground-breaking here but if the starting price is $149 then you can probably expect offers at 20% below that. With the Lenovo branding this low-cost tablet could be an easy choice if you’re concerned about memory usage in desktop scenarios.

    Finally! A 2015 tablet with 2013 specs!

    No, that is a good thing, since for some crazy reason Microsoft decided last year that 1GB was all you needed on a small tablet in their reference (cheap) tablet design.

    Everybody keeps focusing on the “disposable tablet pricing” end of the product line. But there are some of us that want to buy a quality product that works, that you can get 2-3 years of life out of. 1GB RAM isn’t going to cut it, and neither is 32GB eMMC storage.

      lol how is it a good thing when most baytrail tablets in 2014 had 2GB of ram…. this lenovo is still a bit pricey as compared to onda, teclast and cube windows tablet that can even dual boot at less than $120 … the cube vi8 is a dual boot android/windows 8.1 2GB ram at $108….

        the cube vi8 hsa micro sd and hdmi port on top of that…

    Did Lenovo offset the price by installing spyware on the tablet or some other thing that exposes users to identity theft?
