Lenovo ThinkPad 8 tablet has one major flaw

See also

On Saturday afternoon, we were able to spend a little time with Lenovo's new Windows 8.1 tablet, the Lenovo ThinkPad 8. At first glance, it was impressive: an 8.4-inch Windows 8.1 tablet with a beautiful 8.3-inch 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution screen, a Micro USB 3 port, a powerful Bay Trail processor, and a design that is very familiar to the iPad Mini. Sounds good, right?

Lenovo assumed that people didn't care about using their device to take notes. There is no stylus, which is an awful shame. The Microsoft Surface Pro has been praised for its note-taking abilities, but some think the device is a little too big and heavy to carry around as a notepad. The Lenovo ThinkPad 8 would have taken care of this.

The ThinkPad 8 will likely sell for about $400. It isn't meant to replace your desktop, but you can run just about any desktop program here. It is a great tablet and we will have a full review once we are able to spend more time with it. However, we are still disappointed in the lack of stylus.
