Lenovo Miix 320
If you're currently planning to buy a new Windows 10 laptop that is really cheap, I have great news for you. Recently, at this year's MWC, China-based manufacturer - Lenovo - unveiled one awesome Windows 10 hybrid laptop that only costs $199. It's called Lenovo Miix 320.

Lenovo Miix 320 is actually a tablet - Windows 10 tablet. But just like any other hybrid laptops on the market right now, this Lenovo tablet comes with its own keyboard that can be docked magnetically to turn it from a tablet into a laptop.

But you can still use it as a regular Windows 10 tablet by simply detaching this device from the keyboard base.

Despite being a really affordable $199 laptop, this Lenovo Miix 320 actually doesn't suck when it comes to internal hardware. In fact, for its cheap price tag, Lenovo Miix 320 is probably the best you can get on the market right now because it's new and it's also manufactured by a Chinese tech giant - Lenovo, which is trusted for its quality.

This tablet comes with a 10.1-inch screen sporting the full HD resolution (1920x1200 pixels). So everything that you throw on the screen will look sharp and pleasing to the eyes.

And then, its performance will be handled by an Intel Atom X5 processor (Cherry Trail), accompanied with a huge 4GB of DDR3L RAM and Intel HD Graphics. It may not be the most powerful laptop on the market, but for a basic productive machine, it's still a pretty decent laptop.

In terms of gaming performance, we're pretty much sure that Lenovo Miix 320 will not be such an ideal gaming tablet, especially if you're a hardcore PC gamer. So don't expect this device to handle some next-gen titles like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare or Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.

However, with Intel Atom X5 processor, 4GB of RAM and Intel HD Graphics, we believe that this laptop is still more than capable to perform well when playing some older PC games released like 2 years ago.

On the storage department, its 128GB eMMC storage will be more than enough to keep many of your favorite movies and music, as well as documents alive.

Anyway, the Windows 10 OS (64-bit) that is running on this tablet will consume around 20GB of the storage, so the available free storage that you can use on this device is actually around 100GB. But if that's not enough for you, just insert your microSD card on its slot and you're good to go.

The camera department of this hybrid laptop is not too shabby at all, thanks to its 5MP auto-focus camera on the rear as well as 2MP webcam camera found on the front side of the tablet.

Lenovo states that Lenovo Miix 320 is capable to accommodate your entertainment needs for up to 10 hours when used for video playback. So basically it will be reliable enough for doing some productive tasks like typing, project designing, video editing and a whole bunch other stuff. 

When it comes to ports, Lenovo Miix 320 is well-prepared in this department. It comes with 2 standard USB ports on the keyboard dock for your regular mouse, speaker or flashdisk.

Meanwhile on the tablet itself, there are one USB Type-C for charging and also an HDMI port if you want to share everything on the screen of the tablet right away on your HDTV. 

There are many things that totally make Lenovo Miix 320 a worth buying $199 laptop. One of them is definitely its keyboard base.

So it comes with built-in Microsoft Precision Trackpad, which enables you to swipe everything on the screen by using the touchpad on the keyboard dock. And according to theVerge, the trackpad of this laptop is pretty decent to use. 

This definitely will come in handy when you're browsing the web or swiping photos in laptop mode.

And the coolest thing is, Lenovo Miix 320 also supports digital pen. So if you want to draw sketches or simply take notes on this tablet, yes, you can totally do that. We believe that this model will support Windows Ink just like its recently-announced siblings - Lenovo Yoga 720 and Yoga 520. 

However this pen enabled model will come out later in July. So be patient for that! 😉

Meanwhile the regular model of Lenovo Miix 320 will roll out soon in April and yes, you can snatch it for only $199. It includes the keyboard base + the tablet, Windows 10 OS, 4GB of RAM, 128GB eMMC storage, microSD card slot, Intel Atom X5 processor, Intel HD Graphics and many more.

We believe this is the laptop you don't want to miss. It may be cheap, but for a $199 tablet, it's well-spec'd and it's definitely one of the best in that price range.
