As one of the hybrids presented at IFA 2016, the MIIX 510 comes on the market with great expectations - it is a compact model with a very good performance, thanks to the latest generation of Intel processors and its fabulous characteristics that I will share about in this review.
For the past few weeks I have been playing with this device, and so I am first going to talk about the design.
The equipment is made entirely of aluminum, a material of good quality, as well as being part of the YOGA family has watchband hinges, so we can enjoy a viewing angle of up to 150 °.
Watchband hinges are shaped by 280 pieces which makes it tough and very flexible when you want to watch movies or just write on the table.
Its 12 "screen is more than enough to be able to view multimedia content without any problem, this with the help of its Intel HD 520 video card and Dolby technology that is incorporated for a better audio experience.
Check out the Corning Gorilla Glass coating.
The keyboard is incorporated without being an extra accessory so this makes the user have the feeling that it is a keyboard of a normal laptop. In addition to making the case functional for the Tablet, there is incorporated Backlighting with a simple key combination for those who like to work at night.
In this section I will cover what these are - which are a USB 3.0 connection, a USB connection type C and a 3.5 mm connector for the headphones.
In addition to this and in the internal part has a WiFi connectivity with the 802.11ac protocol, so it has the latest in connectivity so it can operate in both 2.4Ghz and 5 GHz bands. In addition the tablet comes with bluetooth 4.0 And some models incorporate a LTE Modem to be able to count on connectivity outside the home.
Buttons and headphones
Power and storage
The different models can have up to an Intel Core i7 processor. I received one with an Intel Core i5-6200U to 2.3Ghz (Sixth Generation Skylake) so it supports DDR4 modules in RAM and more autonomy in the battery.
Up to Intel Core i7 Sixth Generation
Up to 8GB DDR4
Up to 512GB SSD
Up to Intel HD 520 (Graphics Card)
The battery has very good performance; on average use I have come to render 7.5 hours, watching multimedia content and browsing the internet has given me about 5-6 hours approximately of use.
The cameras that are incorporated are not of professional level, but they fulfill and satisfy video call quality.
Windows 10 and Windows Ink
This model has Windows 10 in its latest update, and I have found it so easy to make annotated quick notes or screenshots with Lenovo's active pen.
As we know Windows Ink was incorporated in this latest Update and supports the stylus and touch screen, so there are different tools to exploit this equipment to the maximum.
Tablet and Laptop Mode
It's easy to use, in both modes, either in tablet mode or in portable mode. Also it can also be used as a book and the keyboard in that mode is disabled for best use.
