Lenovo Intros ideapad MIIX 700, A Proper Competitor To The Surface

Today at IFA 2015 Lenovo has introduced a new 12″ Windows 10 tablet in the form of the ideapad MIIX 700. This new tablet is quite clearly designed to be a competitor to Microsoft’s Surface lineup (yes I see you kickstand) and at least on paper, the potential is certainly here.

Specifications for the MIIX 700 are as follows:

  • 12″ FHD+ (2160×1440) Display
  • 10-point multi-touch
  • Windows 10 Pro/Home
  • Up to 6th gen Intel Core i7 processor
  • Up to 8GB LPDDR3L RAM
  • Up to 256GB SSD
  • Integrated Intel HD
  • Up to 9hrs of battery (local video playback)
  • Folio case with keyboard dock
  • Optional Intel RealSense 3D camera
  • Optional LTE
  • 0.35″ Thick, 1.7lbs

Priced at $699, the ideapad MIIX 700 could be the first Windows tablet to truly compete with the Microsoft Surface. The tablet will be available later this year starting at $699 in Champagne Gold and Ebony Black.
