The Lenovo MIIX 320 is a 10.1-inch tablet with Windows 10 and a keyboard dock. It‘s the successor to the MIIX 310 from last year. While it does offer some slight improvements, not much has changed. It has the same internal hardware and same display. The design is a bit different though. Let‘s take a closer look at this inexpensive Windows tablet.
Lenovo MIIX 320: The basics
So what do you need to know about the Lenovo MIIX 320? Well, it is a 10.1-inch Windows tablet. It is relatively inexpensive. As you might expect, the body is made completely out of plastic. Compared to the previous generation the design did improve a bit though. While the MIIX 310 did feel quite cheap, the MIIX 320 has a nicer build quality.
As mentioned earlier, not much has changed inside of the tablet. It‘s shipped with an Intel Atom x5 Z8350 quad-core processor. Usually, the performance is alright for office work, browsing the web and watching videos. But don‘t expect to do any high-end gaming or extensive editing in Photoshop.
Depending on the version, you can get it with 2GB or 4GB of RAM. Personally, I would choose the one with 4GB of memory. Multitasking will be noticeably smoother with this model. You can also choose between 64GB and 128GB of internal memory.
The Lenovo MIIX 320 has a 10.1-inch display with an aspect ratio of 16:10. Lenovo is shipping two versions of the display. One has an HD resolution at 1280 x 800 and the other one a full HD resolution with 1920 x 1200 pixel.
With the Windows tablet, you are getting a couple of ports. Some of them are part of the keyboard dock. There‘s a USB C port, two USB 2.0 ports, and an audio port. In case you wondered: Yes, there‘s a microSD card slot and an HDMI out as well.
Availability and pricing
The Lenovo MIIX 320 is available almost worldwide. You can get it in the United States and all over Europe including Germany, Britain, France, and Poland. It‘s also available in Taiwan, Hong Kong and a couple of other Asian countries.
In the United States prices start at around 249 US Dollars for the cheapest version. Around the world, prices will be very similar to that. For example, in Germany, you‘ll have to pay around 249 euros as well. Sometimes you can find it a bit cheaper though.

My first impressions

Lenovo MIIX 320 Alternatives
There are a couple of alternatives to the Lenovo MIIX 320 you could look at. For example, if you‘re looking for a bit more performance the Acer Switch 3 is an interesting choice. It has a bigger 12-inch display and comes with a faster Intel Kaby Lake processor. While it does cost a bit more, it‘s not too expensive either.
A more expensive solution is the Samsung Galaxy Book 10. Like the MIIX 320, it has a 10.1-inch display. But inside runs a much more powerful Intel Core m3 processor. Because of that, it costs a lot more though.
Depending on where you‘re from, you‘ll probably find a lot of other 10.1-inch Windows tablets with the Intel Atom x5 Z8350 inside. A lot of regional and lesser known companies have tablets with this chip in their portfolio.
