    The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro

    http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/tablet...menu-id=lenovo_yoga_tablet_2_pro#tab-features


    I was going to get a Toshiba Chromebook as a self-Christmas present. But seriously, this thing looks like a beast for less than an iPad (<$500). I actually have been looking for a pocket projector too and this thing comes with one!

    Has anybody gotten this? Any serious con? (Possibly the WIFI card? it's not AC)

    Oh wow, I love the little stand that lets you hang it by a hook! Ive been looking for one that will easily sit on my wall.

    I find Android on a large tablet unimpressive, especially if there is no stylus support. However, it's Windows counterpart seems far more intriguing to me--only $599 and includes a keyboard cover. I don't need one but sure would love get some hands-on time.

    That is how I feel. That is a pretty high price to pay for kitkat....

    Looks pretty nice! I love what Lenovo is doing with their Yoga line of products.
    The kickstand is a very nice feature. My friend has the smaller version. It is very nice. Very fast and responsive...love the kickstand.

    I'm not gonna lie, the projector was the deciding factor me. The Windows version doesn't have it. I really just want a high definition portable web browser and media player.

    it's only Kit Kat, but Kit Kat is a pretty good OS.

    It's a pretty cool gadget and I love the projector idea, but you probably shouldn't expect the image to be super sharp and bright. This guy gives a thorough and seemingly quite fair review of the projector itself:

    For the price, you would think 3 GB of RAM would be in there though. That's what I don't like. A tablet that size is pretty much for productivity and having high specs across the board solidifies that.

    My issue with Android on a tablet is less about the version of the OS and more about the subpar content available to take advantage of the extra screen real estate. Phone apps on Android very nearly rival the quality of those on iOS but the same cannot be said yet for the tablet experience. Just my opinion.

    Well, i guess that why we're born with different wants and needs. I can care less about the quality of third party apps. I just care more about the openness of Android.

    Either way, again, like i said, it's the projector that brought me to this tablet.
