Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx Review
Carrying along a 6800 mAh battery, combined with its battery efficient processor, the Lynx is able to give us a solid one-day of normal usage. Setting the brightness to its maximum and using it primarily for surfing the web and sending emails, we're able to easily get a day's worth of juice. Still, it's something you'll want to recharge nightly if you're a power user.


Conclusion:

Seriously, if saving money is all that you care about, there's no arguing that you'll be doing just that with the Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx. Despite its less than appetizing design combined with its entry-level specs, the Lynx is able to deliver the same level of performance as other Atom-based Windows 8 tablets. However, in making it a more competitive option, you'll need to fork over another $130 to make it a convincing netbook replacement – and that's on top of its $550 price point! Honestly people, the ThinkPad Tablet 2 seems to be a convincing option too at $679, seeing it's packing a rear camera, digitizer stylus, full-sized USB port, and an overall better design, but heck, the savings found with the Lynx might be enough to sway people to its gaze.

unless you are an android fanboy, can you elaborate me what makes you think that choosing an iPad 4 is a joke? despite its stale OS, It has a stunning display, state of the art design and build quality with a good processor and battery back up. Its as worthy as nexus10 or any other android tablets.

well, thats a great choice. I have read that Surface's one helluva tablet. I am not against windows OS.My opinion was based on this review that this device struggles with poor performance. And thats just my opinion.

Nexus 10 is much cheaper than Ipad 4. It has a better resolution and better pixel density. It runs android. It has a better processor and better design (the speakers are amazing on the nexus 10)

Seriously guys, unless you really want the S-Pen there is no reason to buy a Note 10.1, it is one of the worst tablets out there IMO, i used one and it made strange noises when i was holding it from the plastic in the back, it is also strangely squeaky on the back. The iPad has a much better screen, build quality, more GPU power, and has a huge battery.

Unless you don't like iOS the iPad is without a doubt a better tablet than the Note 10.1. And this is coming from an Android fan.

Note 10.1 isnt the only android tablet on the market -.-
Nexus 10 is probably the best tablet at the moment. Highest resolution ever seen on a tab, fast processor, pure android jellybean, amazing build quality and much more

I'll choose the iPad, just for the design, great CPU and GPU, the display and un-laggy iOS. Dislike now... (sorry for my bad english)
