The anitglare 10.1 inch IPS display adds to the attractiveness along with an optional digitizer and Pen for precision input. However, it is inclusion of the newly developed Intel Atom processor that is tipped to be its success secret. Code named ‘The Clover Trail’, it has lower power consumption than regular ARM or Tegra 3 chips and is said to revolutionize the Tablet experience with battery lives of 10 hours or more.
But after is all said and done, user response remains the only thing with which to truly gauge a tablet’s success. So whether or not Lenovo has finally found the winning formula or not, only time can tell.
