Lenovo launched a new detachable tablet today, the IdeaPad D330 model with a 10 inch screen and a $400 price tag. This device debuted in China for starters and it may reach other regions soon. It’s got a 10.1 inch screen and a low power Intel Gemini Lake CPU.
It offers a detachable keyboard and a pretty generous touchpad from what I can see. Lenovo IdeaPad D330 offers a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and its keyboard offers 1.3 mm of travel, plus the touchpad is a high precision one. There’s also a locking mechanism here and a hinge that lets you use the computer like a notebook. One can also flip the screen around, so it will face away from the keyboard.
On the connectivity front, there’s an USB Type-C 3.1 port, plus a headset jack and a microSDXC card reader. Two USB 2.0 Type-A ports are on offer in the keyboard part of the device. Configs include up to an Intel Pentium N5000 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. The higher end unit is priced at $580 though.
The entry level model is priced at $400 and offers a Celeron N4000 CPU, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. No idea if this device will ever make it out of China. Yes, I know it’s pricier than Chromebooks and probably not as appealing, but Lenovo is working on so many levels that it affords a less appealing device.
