Lenovo unveiled two new Windows 8.1 tablets today at CES in Las Vegas, launched under the Lenovo Miix 2 line. The new Lenovo Miix 2 tablets comes in the size 10 and 11 inches wide.
Both of these tablets, or small detachable laptops, comes with a magnetically attached keyboard which easily and quickly snaps into place or out of the way, depending on your needs. Lenovo isn’t the only manufacturer to take advantage of this design, but it works well.
(UPDATE: Lenovo Miix 2 10 FHD is taking pre-orders with release in March.)
