Handy for your handbag: The Miix 700 from Lenovo

With Christmas around the corner you can expect a stack of rad devices and gadgets popping up from the big tech brands. I’ve seen a few items that have caught my eye and I’m definitely adding them to my holiday wish list (you can’t have enough gadgets right?).

This is my first on the “must have” list: The new Miix 700 from Lenovo. I’ve been pretty vocal about my 2 in 1 love of late. So much so I even did a piece for Intel about why everyone should have a 2 in 1. As a girl on the go (I spend a lot of time running around like a crazy person) I can definitely appreciate a small device that slips into my handbag to join me during the day but easily powers up to give me the support I need to blog and work on the go.

Lenovo plans to introduce this little beauty round October/November this year. It is going to cost in the region of 10k but it has a few features I like. For starters I love the way it looks. The keyboard is on the back of a sort of leather piece which allows it to take on a skinnier form. It has a 12″ display with a keyboard on the back. Take a look at this video from Windows Central – taken at IFA 2015.

You’re looking at 8GB of RAM with the added advantage of SSD storage. It has two USB ports (my current 2 in 1 only has one. Bummer) and comes with Windows 10. It weighs 770 grams and comes with a Stylus. Added extra really but still fun to play with. You’ll also be able to add an Intel Real Sense camera to it. Remember when I was in China earlier this year I was raving about it? Yes, it looks very much like the Microsoft Surface Pro but then – why change a good thing right?

Here’s hoping once the Miix 700 arrives we get a chance to review it and can tell you if it lives up to the hype. Watch this space!
