Deal DetailsLast Edited by widgit February 9, 2014 at 09:26 PM
This was announced for March release at CES but it popped up early. The link is for the Lenovo B&N Affinity website, which requires you to log in (anyone can sign up). It is $70 cheaper compared to the regular Lenovo site, which has it for $499 after coupon, and is one of the bigger percentage discounts you will see between the two sites.
This is a good deal for those who were interested in the Asus Transformer T100 (Frontpage in December) but were put off by the 1366x768 screen - this machine has a much higher resolution, better brightness, better speakers, better SSD performance, etc. It is also 64GB which would have cost an additional $50 on the Asus anyway. It has approximately the same bezel ratios as the iPad Air (slightly larger dimensions offset by a slightly larger screen area) and its weight falls halfway between that of the the iPad 4 and the iPad Air. The keyboard is a "Lenovo AccuType" and is supposed to be good for the class as well.
Note: Office Home & Student 2013 comes pre-loaded.
