Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 520 Impression: A Surface Clone Laptop Featuring Quad-Core Power
Lenovo's IdeaPad Miix 520, a 2-in-1 Surface clone will soon begin supporting Intel's latest 8th-generation CPUs. Announced at IFA in Berlin, the Miix 520 will be the first among similar products to offer Intel's quad-core CPUs for laptops.
When Lenovo's IdeaPad Miix 520 is launched in October this year with a starting price of $1,000, it will offer state-of-the-art features and its keyboard will have a magnetic flap which connects it to the tablet.
Specifications for the IdeaPad Miix 520 reach up to an 8th Generation Intel end squad-core Core i7 processor, 16GB DDR4 RAM, and a PCIe S 1TB SSD. Like 2016's Yoga 920, it will also be available in 13.9-inch FHD or 4K IPS touch configurations, with the 4K giving a battery life of a stated 10.8 hours. However, the FHD supports an even longer battery life of 15.5 hours, as reported by PC World.
The Lenovo's IdeaPad Miix 520 has several new input options when compared to the Miix 510. One-touch Windows 10 login is done by a fingerprint sensor. Lenovo's Active Pen 2, with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, also supports user inking and drawing onscreen. The new Far Field microphone array enables voice activation for Windows 10's Cortana from as far as 13 feet away from the laptop, as reported by Paste Magazine.
The Lenovo's IdeaPad Miix 520 also has a unique WorldView camera capable of taking 3D images. In fact, Lenovo's MagicWindow app even lets users view regular images as 3D images.
Microsoft's Surface and its 2-in-1 followers like the Lenovo's IdeaPad Miix 520 always manage to bring portability and versatility in its models but often at the cost of their performance. With the introduction of Intel's thin-and-light laptops with higher performance, a major barrier for this class of PC could be abolished.
