Lenovo ThinkPad 8 in practice: Tablets with Windows 8.1 seem to be still demand-with the ThinkPad 8 (MSRP 449,99 EUR) brings his second, pure tablet with Microsoft’s OS on the market the producer Lenovo and want to present as an appliance optimised on Business users at the ThinkPad Tablet 2. We will show you the following our impressions from our practice test.
Lenovo Thinkpad 8: Design And Processing
At the mass, Lenovo confined to an 8.3 inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and 272 ppi. The only 8.8 mm thin device lies pleasantly in your hand right-only is the comparatively high weight 430 gram negative.
The tablet itself is made of aluminium on the back. The front is made of glass and the housing itself was equipped with a plastic frame. These materials allow Act 8 high quality the ThinkPad and convince consistently.
Lenovo ThinkPad 8: Facilities
The ThinkPad 8 comes with an Intel Atom Z3770, operated with up to 2.4 GHz and 2 GB RAM memory-something little in our opinion. Strongly reflected the 128 GB Flash memory, the speed of the device significantly increased.
The connections are the norm: are to find a micro-USB 3.0 port, a micro-HDMI output as well as a microSD and SIM card slot. It also supports Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi a/b/g/n.
Furthermore, the ThinkPad 8 offers two Full-HD cameras. The back delivers images with eight megapixels, while the front side with two cope.The image quality on both cameras very well-especially the front camera convinced video conferencing.
The two speakers generally give a good sound. Striking, however, is that the positioning unhappy was chosen, because if the user uses the tablet in landscape mode, these are easily covered – the result is a somewhat dumpferer sound then.
Lenovo Thinkpad 8: Performance
The actual performance is noticeable the touch screen negative : the operation by finger acts somewhat imprecise, especially since the tile surface of Windows 8 buttons have got something small. Remedy would have created a stylus, but Lenovo does not provide unfortunately these.
Working with the ThinkPad 8 is generally satisfactory: applications are fast and fluid running speed the Tablet is among the best of his Guild.
Much slower, the work designed but with the device as a Desktop replacement. It runs resource-consuming applications such as Adobe Photoshop, you can see the slow CPU and low memory significantly-a weakness that is not acceptable to appropriate users.
Lenovo ThinkPad 8: Conclusion
The “business-Tablet PC functionality”, such as Lenovo, the ThinkPad 8 applies, can expectations do not meet. That seems superficially at Tablet published the 21 March 2014 to bring all of the requirements for professional users, but the devil is in the detail.
Because who wants to actually use the device as a desktop replacement, is brought back as a result of weak performance and hakeliger operation quickly on the ground. You used the 8 as a pure tablet, ThinkPad’s earned top grades but in handling and facilities-thus it is enough for a “good” rating in the practice test.
