The Len­ovo Miix 2 (11”) was De­signed to be Ev­ery­thing in One

HWM (Malaysia) - - THINK -

If you’re look­ing for a Win­dows 8.1 de­vice that serves to func­tion as a tablet, Ul­tra­book and a me­dia de­vice all in one, then you may want to take a look at the Len­ovo Miix 2 (11”).

The Miix 2 (11”) is a cross be­tween an Ul­tra­book and tablet. It takes its in­spi­ra­tion from Mi­crosoft’s Sur­face Pro Ul­tra­book con­vert­ible by us­ing the core con­cept of in­stan­ta­neous trans­for­ma­tion from a full-func­tion­ing note­book into an ul­tra­portable Win­dows 8.1 tablet when nec­es­sary. The key­board dock is also de­signed to be light and easy to use, al­low­ing users to switch be­tween us­ing it in a con­ven­tional way, or by flip­ping the Miix 2 the other way and dock­ing it as a me­dia de­vice to en­joy video con­tent.

Phys­i­cally, the Miix 2 (11”) has a sin­gle USB 3.0 port, which also dou­bles up as the de­vice’s charg­ing port. When not used to charge up the de­vice, it re­turns to its nor­mal func­tion as a high-speed trans­fer port. Speak­ing of power, the Miix 2 (11”) is also fit­ted with a pow­er­ful, long-last­ing bat­tery that guar­an­tees up to, if not more than, six hours of con­tin­u­ous use.

In terms of spec­i­fi­ca­tions, the Miix 2 (11”) is pow­ered by a 4th gen­er­a­tion In­tel Core i5-4202Y CPU and runs on a healthy 8GB of DDR3L RAM, which has been clocked at 1,600MHz. These spec­i­fi­ca­tions make the Miix 2 (11”) ex­tremely re­spon­sive and quick in per­form­ing any given task, with­out any de­lay or lag in the process. Also, be­cause the Miix 2 (11”) is con­sid­ered to be a fully-func­tion­ing note­book, it is ca­pa­ble of hous­ing an SSD of up to 256GB. This makes the de­vice phe­nom­e­nally fast, as the SSD dra­mat­i­cally re­duces bootup and load­ing time.

Com­ple­ment­ing the de­vice is a Full HD res­o­lu­tion dis­play that en­sures im­ages and text are crys­tal clear and sharp. The Miix 2 (11”) also comes pre­loaded with Len­ovo’s ges­ture con­trol and fa­cial recog­ni­tion soft­ware, which al­lows the user to con­trol the de­vice with­out even touch­ing it.

The Len­ovo Miix (11”) is al­ready avail­able in stores and will re­tail at RM2,999.
