    This is a complete laptop replacement!
    Quite powerful - really snappy, especially for a tablet device running FULL Windows 8.1 (64-bit)!
    Very well built - the build quality shows.
    People complain about the battery life- bit remember, this is a device that runs full windows! Mine performs well all day/evening with heavy use (I use it to study/browse the internet/exchange emails/work a little/spreadsheets (which alone are quite power-intensive) etc.

    Windows full version is definitely a plus point compared to Android or apple ios
    As it's a tablet style design, could have also had the user interface option suited for tablet use e.g when we click any text entry box would have expected the screen keyboard to popup etc. Battery life is horrible and in standby mode it dose not even last whole day! The back heats even for simple browsing activities. Could have been lighter but 150gms atleast. No support for dock like simple resting on a dock rather than plugging. No keyboard docking while travelling. Charging cable too thick could have been slim flexible for easy use. Not happy with picturing colour onscreen like more hue.Too much improvement is needed in all areas

    The fact I can 2 run virtual machines each with 1GB of RAM as well as the OS means I can completely replace laptop! Also, the thinkpad USB 3.0 dock really helps when working at a desk and a bigger screen is more desirable. The screen quality is fantastic!
    The only bad points are the fact that it is so good, you need to put it in a case which hides it's beauty and just how incredible this device is for its size!

    good for both personal and business use
    for a 4Gb quad core is slow on performance even when running own Lenovo support app. Also no micro usb to usb female cable included. Even order via Lenovo for same cable has taken over 14 days already and still not delivered. Overall happy when prod compared with other manufacturers for same.

    ThinkPad 8Ask an Owner

    Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the ThinkPad 8

    1. Jason asked on
      I have just ordered one, is it a mistake?
      Expansys says its only a 1.4GHz so is it 1.4 or 2.x??
      1. Steve replied on
        Is it a mistake? No. Its arguably the best windows 8 tablet you can buy, with the caveat that the battery life isnt that great (5-6 hours).

        I cant comment on the processor clock speed speed, but I can tell you that its plenty fast enough for general browsing/media and light office duties.

        Dont bother upgrading to windows 10 yet, its currently not as good at 8.1 on small tablets.
    2. Pixi asked on
      Is there a stylus available for the ThinkPad 8, I really like this tablet but it does need a stylus.
      1. Christopher replied on
        Hello there, unfortunately there is not a stylus as seen on the 10 inch version. The only stylus avawwould be those cheap ones for touch screen phones and alike, although I am unsure whether they would work successfully with this type of screen.
    3. Anne asked on
      Is it possible to wirelessly project to a TV using miracast, I'm having to return an acer iconia because although I can wirelessly project content to TV it only allows me to use the extend option not the duplicate (screen mirror) option. I'm looking for a replacement and don't want to make the same mistake twice - I need the tab to project using both extend screen and duplicate screen features. Any guidance on this will be gratefully received.
      1. ravinder replied on
        Hi Anne. Mine supports all multi display options such as mirror/duplicate, extend via wifi. That is same options that one would get on say a desktop that had multiple displays. This feature is inherent within windows and of course completed by the display adaptor cspability. Maybe your acer display adaptor is limited either in memory or simply capability. So consider all these factors too

    4. A shopper asked on
      Can anyone confirm successfully loading and using the standard Oracle JAVA plug-in with whatever browser they've used on the ThinkPad_8 ?
      ..and loading and using a different browser such as Firefox ?
      1. Matthew replied on
        Yes, it does work, although only in 'Desktop' mode, which is a Win 8 restriction.

        I use IE11 and Chrome.
      2. Saiful replied on
        hi, yes it does work in desktop mode. never used it in any other mode.
        I returned mine as it was getting over heated and battery was dying out in few hours.
        Excellent machine but shame about the heat and battery.
