Lenovo launched its newest multi-mode convertible, the Miix 2, at Romulos Cafe Makati City , which gives users the flexibility and freedom to use the device as a laptop, tablet, and stand. The Miix 2 is the latest in a slew of Lenovo devices that adapt to users’ preferred mode allowing them the ease of content creation, watching movies, and interacting with digital content.
“The award winning Miix 2 crystallizes Lenovo’s commitment to improve its product line-up and address consumer needs. With the Miix 2, users no longer have to decide between a laptop or a tablet in their purchase decision as its detachable design allows them to experience the best of both worlds. It also comes with the stand mode for convenient and easy digital interaction,” said Michael Ngan, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines.
Expanding Multimode Design with Miix 2 Detachables
Miix 2 gives users the freedom to carry the touchscreen tablet without the base when they are on the go. They can then connect the tablet back to the base for a full Windows 8.1 laptop experience when needed.
