owned one for a few weeks. great screen, after quite a few important updates from Intel and Lenovo it was a very nice device. the 40 dollar stylus worked well and did have palm rejection. I'd be glad to attempt to answer any questions you may have. we returned it because my wife couldn't get used to the "surface" form factor with kickstand.

We started to buy one as well but didn't like the kickstand. Found the HP Pavilion X2 12. Very similar hinge / keyboard concept to the Surface Book but same specs/price as this Miix. My wife loves it. I think this design is the future of all convertibles. We like it better than our Yogas. I've never been an HP fan, but I'm impressed.

Even when you're not kidding that still sounds like a praise more than the opposite.


I'm sure a lot of people are looking for the best (cheaper) alternative to the Surface Pro. Ha.

That doesn't look like it have a kickstand? I'm actually the opposite and loved the Miix kickstand since I mostly use it as a tablet. The flexibility of the kickstand allow the tablet to be place anywhere and in many positions. Very useful in meeting or on the bed watching movies. The huge benefit is that is is perfectly weight and balanced when use without the keyboard.

How is the battery life and are there any glaring issues like ghost touch?

I normally get over 6 hours usage with mine. Everything seems to work well besides the hover distance not being the greatest.

I had one for a month from Costco deal.that was $550 128GB SSD and 8GB RAM.
Loved the hardware, but lenovo drivers and support sucks. THere is no way to flip two finger scroll direction since they didnt buuld the driver for windows to recognize it as its hardware capable of doing that . As result options that show up for other laptops or Surface for example in touchscreen and input settings are missing and you have to do registry hacks to make changes.

I was willing to let that slide until I couldn't even type a proper sentence without having dropouts issues mentioned below. It's very widespread issue and they have not fixed it so I ended up returning it.

If it was not for that issue I would have over looked other issues and keep it, but not being able to type is just plain stupid.

Ugh i'm guessing this charges with that weird proprietary male/male USB A cable?
The design + specs look fantastic for the price, kinda regret buying my Toshiba Click 10 due to the 2gb ram...but it was only $190 lol. And charges by micro-usb which is a huge feature for me.

It does have a propietary usb charger. I've seen the cables by themselves go for around $10 on eBay. I have a sp3 i3 for work which I have compared side by side. Performance is a bit better on the Lenovo but the keyboard can be problematic. The mouse pad is overly sensitive and does not work well but can be fixed by using the stylus or wireless mouse. The keyboard itself will miss keystrokes from time to time. Overall I would say it's a good buy at this price and hopefully Lenovo will have an update for the keyboard issues.

If the sp3 and Lenovo were the same price I would go with a sp3 hands down but I can live with the small nit picks of the Lenovo for the savings
