Lenovo today unveiled the ThinkPad 8, a tablet with best specifications to date in the 8-inch Windows 8 category.
The most improtant highlights are a full HD 1920×1200-pixel display with actually 8.3″ diagonal, instead of common 1280×800 8.0″, and a slightly faster Intel Atom “Bay Trail” CPU. The Lenovo ThinkPad 8 comes with a 2.4GHz quad-core Atom, whereas other similar tablets ship with a 1.8GHz variant. Although Lenovo hasn’t listed the exact CPU model, we assume it’s an Atom Z3770 series chip. Compared to the 1.8GHz Z3740, the Z3770 brings a speed bump from 1,100 PassMark CPU points to about 1,230, but in both cases these provide enough oomph for normal daily web and office tasks, but without video / photo editing and gaming potential of the Intel Core series.
