Please tell me you are using the x5 8550 in this machine and not the 8350 as i heard. they have the same wattage and close of not the same price so i cant see why in 2017 you would use the slower CPU.
it would be a shame to fix everything you did wrong in the 310 and leave the performance alone. I would not mind paying $20 extra for the 8550 CPU. using the 8350 puts this machine one notch below excellent for the price.
is the emmc drive the exact same performance as the 310 or were you able to enhance it further?

What lenovo can do is release a Miix 335 or 340.
increase the screen to 10.6 inches.
change the cpu to the x5 8550 or x7 8750.
keep everything else the same and charge $349 for it.
I'd be first in line to get one.

unfortunately I didn´t hit the Windows + Break button on the Miix320. So I cannot say which CPU was onboard.
But here are the pics and specs I found at #MWC17
The Miix 320 (keyboard included, Wi-Fi only without LTE) starts at €269, and the Miix 320 (keyboard included, with LTE) starts at €399 and are available beginning in April 2017. The Miix 320 with Active Pen support and Microsoft Office 365 (for 12 months) will be available in select markets starting in July 2017 on www.lenovo.com.

Thanks for the further information.
So the LTE will also not be avialable in the US?
why keep stabbing themselves in the foot? lol
The Miix 320 is good to compete with the chromebooks or low budget market.
Here is what I and a some other people would like for midrange. For which there are no alternatives currently. The Miix 520 is too big/heavy.
Ideapad Miix 420
10.6- 10.8 inch screen - similar or exactly like Surface 3
Core m3/m5 or Atom X7 8550 CPU with an actual heatsink to avoid throttling
128GB storage emmc or m.2 SATA preferably
USB3 type A
USB C charging or regular adaptor like Miix 320 if you use the Atom chip

I made some mistakes in the Miix 420 specs
Ideapad Miix 420
10.8 inch screen - similar or exactly like Surface 3 (since that screen is already made you don't have to design it yourself)
Core m3/m5 with actual copper heatsink/heat spreader like Surface Pro 4 m3 edition to avoid CPU throttling
128GB storage m.2 SATA (upgradable like Miix 700)
USB 3.1 Gen2 type A (10Gbps)
USB 2.0 type A
unlocked worldwide LTE
Front camera with LED for video/MS Hello
Pen and Keyboard included
Yes; I left out USB C on purpose.
