It’s not just another portable way to watch your movies. The Thinkpad 8 redefines the way you view and work on your tablet.

Since the introduction of tablets to the market, we’ve been trying to make it work as a laptop/netbook replacement. Think about it: a tablet is thin, portable, and has a degree of autonomy from the wall socket. If you’re used to working on your spreadsheets and reports on a laptop however, turning a tablet into a replacement may need a bit of work or adjustment.

Lenovo‘s newest professional-class tablet may just be the perfect solution. The Thinkpad 8 is the brand’s premium offering and readily connects to a keyboard and even a monitor for a full PC experience, or hooks up to a Bluetooth keyboard for a legit laptop replacement.

The Thinkpad 8 comes with the latest Intel Bay Trail Quad Core processor and offers up to 128GB of internal storage (with a microSD card). The tablet is capable to expand into a desktop PC by attaching it to a Thinkpad USB 3.0 dock station. Here are the specs:

2.4GHz Intel Atom Z3770 Bay Trail quad-core processor
2GB of RAM
Intel HD Graphics Gen7
8.3-inch IPS LCD screen, 1920 × 1200 resolution
64GB of storage, expandable via microSD
8-megapixel rear camera with flash
1080p video recording
WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS
3G, LTE (variants)
Windows 8.1 or 8.1 Pro (variants)
Up to 8 hours of runtime
132mm x 224.3mm x 8.8mm

Lenovo was able to cram a decent netbook into the size of a tablet, turning it into a heavyweight. But heavyweight specs come at a price: be ready to shell out P25,490 for this little guy at all Lenovo-affiliated resellers nationwide.
