Lenovo Miix 2 11 FHD (59435483) 2-in-1 Tablet Intel Core i5 4202Y (1.60 GHz) 256 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 4200 Shared memory 11.6
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Small, light and very portable. Good battery life. You won't pull out your shoulder when you decide to chuck it out the window.

Cons: Absolutely horrible product all around.
1) The i5 processor "detunes" itself to 600MHz (67% under advertised specs!) as soon as you do anything processor intensive, causing lag and stuttering. It performs worse than a netbook I own that has an old Atom processor. You can't watch HD video. Advancing PowerPoint slides results in a 1 - 2 second delay (!).
2) It uses plastic, weak components. The proprietary USB / charging port stopped making a solid connection after 8 months under gentle use. Replacing the motherboard is the only way to fix it. Lenovo will tell you it's not covered by the warranty because you physically damaged it. (By using it?)
3) The screen sits in the keyboard base at a fixed angle. You WILL find this greatly annoying.
4) The screen does not sit in the base solidly and can fall out or rock back and forth easily (making it lose the connection the keyboard). This makes it almost impossible to use on your lap. So, yes, you're forced to use this ultraportable 2 in 1 on a flat, level surface... don't even think about writing an email in bed.

Other Thoughts: Don't be fooled by the specs. In real use, you're buying a tablet with a 600MHz processor. (Contact me for screen shots if you're interested.) Do not buy the Miix 2 11 at any price or with any configuration. It's a dog.

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent value 03/30/2015

This review is from: Aluratek ABH01F-R Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Headphones (Refurbished)

Pros: Works well. Very attractive design. Very comfortable. Sound is quite good. Unit look and works like brand new.

Cons: It's sound over Bluetooth, so quality isn't the same as over a wire. But that's what I expected.

Other Thoughts: For the price, I am very happy with the purchase.
