Back at CES we showed you the Lenovo Thinkpad 8, an awesome 8-inch Windows tablet. Today, as promised, the tablet has officially gone up for sale for $429. This device is one of our all-time favorite Windows tablets. It has a gorgeous display, beutiful hardware design, and it’s running full Windows 8.1. What’s not to like?
The Thinkpad 8 is the first 8-inch Windows tablet with a 1920×1200 display. It has the latest Intel Atom Z3770 quad-core processor to power Windows 8.1. One of the neatest things is the magnetic cover that can be purchased for the tablet. It hooks to the device similarly to Surface keyboards and it can fold to reveal the camera when flipped around the back. A cool trick.
Other features for the Thinkpad 8 inclulde LTE support, 64 or 128GB of storage, microUSB 3.0, and a microSD card slot. You can order the tablet now from Lenovo starting at $429. This is the iPad Mini competitor we’ve been waiting for. Are you picking one up?
