ThinkPad 8 Tablet With Intel Bay Trail Starts at $400

The ThinkPad 8 offers three unique modes: Desktop, Tablet, and Tent. As you can probably imagine, Tablet Mode is the device by itself, while Desktop Mode requires an optional (i.e., not included) keyboard base. Tent Mode also requires an accessory, Lenovo's Quickshot Cover.


The ThinkPad 8 comes equipped with Intel's Z3770 (Bay Trail) quad-core CPU clocked to 2.4 GHz and Intel HD Graphics, with 2 GB of RAM, up to 128 GB of SSD storage, and an 8.3-inch 1920 x 1200 FHD display with 10-point multi-touch. Then there are the usual bells and whistles: WiFi, optionally 4G/3G, rear- and front-facing cameras (8-megapixel and 2-megapixel, respectively). There's also MicroUSB 3.0, MicroSD, MicroHDMI, and MicroSIM (for 3G models).

Pricing will start at $399 when the device becomes available later this month.

    I'm assuming this comes with Windows 8/8.1? Unless I missed it somewhere in the article.....

    Not for me. I like big monitors and real estate to have the occasional two windows open at once. Also games are pretty hampered on a tablet. Not a big tablet fan, as you can tell. Why get a tablet+laptop/desktop when you can just have one? I think a laptop is best for most people in terms of cost efficiency and fulfilling needs. I just built a desktop since the small laptop screen was getting lame and I wanted to play real games.

    It's a WinRT device not Win 8.1, still worth it IMHO.
