The Lenovo Lynx doesn't just bridge the gap between laptop and tablet, it takes over the entire spectrum. If you're not doing anything especially processor intensive, it can act as a completely functional laptop with USB and all. Since it's running...

The Lynx isn't the best-designed, longest-lasting or most feature-rich low-powered hybrid. For that, you don't even have to look outside Lenovo's wheelhouse: the ThinkPad Tablet 2's long battery life and comfortable keyboard make it our reigning favorite.

The Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx offers all the things we like about Intel Atom Windows 8 tablets: long battery life, silent operation, long standby and a thin and light design. But its looks detract from an otherwise solid experience, and I fear that it may...

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...

The IdeaTab Lynx is an impressively light convertible tablet with long battery life. But its plastic exterior and keyboard feel a bit cheap. Unless the Lenovo's price drops a bit, HP's aluminum-clad Envy x2 is a better buy....

The Lenovo IdeaPad Lynx is not really as cost effective as some of the lower-end Intel Atom Windows 8 tablets on the market, but for just a few hundred dollars more other tablets offer way more in terms of performance and build quality. Users who are...

The Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx is a decidedly middle of the road tablet: slow performance, decent battery life, so-so screen. The design won't win any awards, but we do like that a keyboard dock with extra ports is available. It's not the best Atom-based...

I've never been a big fan of tablet PCs. A UMPC with 5-7” screen, yes but the classic tablet pc with digitizer and 11.6 or greater screen size was too awkward for me, Too heavy to hold in one hand, with poor battery life and screen input limited to a...
