Lenovo's adding an 8 inch full Windows tablet to the mix, if you'll pardon the pun. The Miix2 runs full Windows 8.1 (not RT) on the new Intel Atom Bay Trail quad core processor that should bring some serious performance improvements to the modest Atom line. The tablet will ship with a full license for MS Office 2013 Home and Student Edition.
It will available at the end of the month with a starting price of $299, which really puts some pressure on Android tablets and even the iPad mini.
