Lenovo Lynx – Atom Based Win8

Lenovo LynxAmong the plethora of devices that Lenovo has introduced last Tuesday, there was something for everyone. Among those devices, they introduced an Atom based convertible hybrid, called Lenovo Lynx.  The Lynx is a Transformer type hybrid that copies its type of design, but with Lenovo’s own hinge design.

The Lynx is a notebook/tablet hybrid that will be aimed for the broad public, offering common specs that can already be seen in most of them. Its casing is made out of high quality plastic and one of its main distinctions is that even though the tablet itself is measuring 11.6 inch, which makes it one of the largest tablets on the market it is incredible light, measuring less than 640g. Even though when combined with the dock that weighs less than 660g it measures a 1.3kg, it is still very light for its size.

The connector is quite firm, so there will be no wobbling when you connect it to the dock.  From the hardware aspect it will come with the new Z2760 Clover Trail processor that is a dual-core 1.8GHz Atom processor, accompanied with 2GB RAM and 32GB or 64GB internal storage space. The tablets’ screen is an 11.6 IPS five point touch screen, with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels that is a standard for this size of screens.

On the tablet itself you will find Micro-HDMI, Micro-USB and a microSD slot. Additionally, the dock comes with 2 full size USB 2.0 ports. From the connection aspect it has an 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. On the tablet you will find stereo speakers and dual digital microphones, accompanied with a 2MP front facing camera and a Gyro.

The tablet itself has a battery life of 8 hours, but when connected to the dock that battery life is extended up to 16 hours.

The tablet works on a full Windows 8 operating system and will be available in December. The price of the tablet will be starting at $599 and additional $149 for the dock.
