This particular device that we spotted over at Intel’s Computex booth in Nangang Exhibition Hall and Intel’s mobile press briefing has raised our curiosity especially that it has yet to be announced by Lenovo. Called the IdeaPad Miix 10, the information about it is rather scarce although it has made an appearance during Intel Developer Forum in Beijing few months ago.
At a glance, you can’t help but to notice that its form factor is rather identical to Acer Aspire P3: a combination of tablet and a folder-like protective cover that is equipped with built-in mounting for the tablet as well as a full size keyboard. That being said, the implementation by Lenovo on IdeaPad Miix 10 is rather different.
The tablet mounting of IdeaPadMiix are located on the top left and right corner as well as middle bottom area of the cover as opposed to the full body mount on the Aspire P3. The way it is positioned into standard laptop stance is identical but Lenovo used magnets to hold the device in place underneath the bottom mounting which also contains the docking port for the tablet.

Running on Windows 8 Pro, the IdeaPadMiix tablet unit is powered by Intel Atom Z2760 a.k.a Clover Trail SoC which features a HT-enabled dual-core 1.8GHz CPU and 533MHz PowerVR SGX 545 GPU. It also comes with 2GB of RAM and if our estimate based on the stats given by the Windows Performance Information and Tools is correct, the IdeaPad Miix 10 should come with 64GB internal storage as well. The 10-inch tablet which supports up to five simultaneous touch points is also equipped with a single front-facing camera but no rear-facing camera.
We were informed that Lenovo should be announcing it very soon, so look forward to hear from them in the near future.
