Proof of how good an idea the Asus Transfomer concept is can be seen in the veritable stampede of Windows 8 tablets currently thundering over them thar hills which can also be slotted into a keyboard docking station.
Lenovo’s upcoming IdeaTab Lynx is a rather neat looking affair, packing a 11.6 inch 1366 x 768 pixel 5-point capacitive multi touch display backed by an Intel Atom Z2760 Clover Trail processor.
The Intel processor ensures that the Lynx can run all regular x86 Windows programs in desktop mode (unlike Windows RT machines which come with ARM processors).
Inside the IdeaTab Lynx can be found 2GB of RAM, 32GB to 64GB of storage and a 6800mAh battery offering 8 hours of run time, with the optional keyboard doubling that time.
The tablet comes with a 2MP front-facing camera, microUSB port, microSD card slot, micro HDMI port, 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0, a, dual stereo speakers, and dual microphones.
Measuring up at 11.9″ x 7.4″ x 0.4,” the Lynx weighs in at around 1.4 pounds, beefing up to 2.9 pounds when the keyboard is attached.
The Lynx will go on sale in December for $599, with the docking station costing another $150 on top.
