    - 12.2" 1920x1200,16:10 (instead of 3:2, 2160x1440 of Miix 700)
    - Core i3, i5, i7 (instead of Core M3, M5, M7)
    - up to 8GB of RAM, up to 512GB SSD (up to 256GB in Miix 700)
    - USB C port
    - 39WHr battery (vs 43WHr of Miix 700)
    - Active pen 2048 levels (same as Miix 700. Still probably using Elan touch panel)

    Looks to be using the same chassis as Miix 700, but probably now has venting holes for active cooling. Price for Europe slated around $800ish US. I think this will slot below Miix 700 in MSRP in US.

    Looks like more of a head-to-head surface pro competitor. The price should be rock bottom at a place like Microcenter.

    I always wonder how Microcenter is able to offer the prices it does....

    The computers "fell off a truck" as my father would have said.:vbwink:

    Wonder why then went to a 16:10 display?

    Probably cheaper option than 3:2.

    At least it's not 16:9. But, I would have thought that 3:2 being more common now would have evened things out a bit in terms of cost?

    You don't want Miix 510 to be fanless with those 15W processors unless you enjoy heavy throttling. It's make throttling in Miix 700 look like cakewalk.

    It was fully announced this week. I kind of like the idea of the faster cpu, but paired with a smaller battery is a no. I'm mixed on the 16:10 vs 3:2 as I don't remember 16:10 to well.

    Lenovo had to mantein 3:2 ratio and add a 3D facing camera for Hello and Intel's App and a TB3. But pheraps they want to create different 2in1, so what I have to buy? 2 tabletpcs?
