Lenovo ThinkPad 8 Review

Nothing out of the ordinary here, since it can handle a workday with enough juice for normal usage.

Equipped to handle a typical workday from 9AM to 5PM, battery life is effective enough for most average users. Power users, on the other hand, will need to recharge the tablet throughout the day – more so when it’s being tested to the max with intensive software.


We can’t stress enough how the Lenovo ThinkPad 8 has more flexibility than other prized tablets in the space. Giving us that desktop-like experience thanks to Windows 8.1, it has an advantage in the productivity side over other Android tablets and the iPad. Add in its base price point of $400, it absolutely provides consumers with plenty of value that won’t drain their pockets. In many ways, it’s a fantastic tablet that’s great for fun and work, but we wouldn’t say that it’s something that greatly oversteps traditional laptops in the mobile computing space. Compact, light, and responsive, it has enough of the elements to make it a compelling offering to those who want to travel light – without missing out on the desktop-like experience.

Software version of the review unit: Windows 8.1 Pro


  • Affordable $400 base price that’s aggressive
  • Compact design that’s travel friendly and sturdy
  • Display resolution produces crisp visuals
  • Desktop-like experience in a small package


  • Lack of additional productivity software out of the box
  • Focusing is problematic with the camera
