5 Tablet Alternatives For Partners Hungry For Microsoft Surface


Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2

Lenovo is known for its ThinkPad family of business notebooks, but the company has built up a solid line of tablets, too. Case in point: the ThinkPad Tablet 2. Unlike the first-generation ThinkPad Tablet, which ran Android, the ThinkPad Tablet 2 runs Windows 8 and is based on Intel's Clover Trail System-on-Chip Atom Z2760 processor. The 10-inch touch-screen display has a resolution of 1,366 x 768, and the device comes with a USB 2.0 port, a microSD card slot and a mini-HDMI port. The ThinkPad Tablet 2 also comes with an optional attachable keyboard.
