As expected, CES2017 is a its full blast and we’re seeing manufactures unveiling the best offers for this first half of he year.

Lenovo is one of the first to make a move by unveiling the sequel to their 2-in-1 Surface competitor.

The Miix 720

This iteration of their convertible tablet-laptops series seems to have everything to compete against the Surface Pro 4 and probably the soon to come Pro 5.

Measuring just 14.6 mm and Weighing just 2.4 lbs (1.1 kg) is one of the more portable workhouses you’ll see.

The tablet comes with a precise cut detachable keyboard which is also backlit that you’ll find in all models.

The screen is one of the main attraction this time, offering a unpararel definition with its QHD+ screen at 2880 x 1920 resolution in a 3:2 aspect ratio and 12″ of touchscreen, something not even the Surface line have offer thus far and promise to deliver stunning graphics.

On the front we’ll find the integrated Infrared Windows Hello ready Web Camera to help you worry free unlocking of your device via facial recognition.

And on the back you’ll see the 5MP rear camera (but please, don’t be that guy) also there’s an “up-to-150-degree kickstand”

On the Memory department we have up to 16 GB of DDR4 RAM memory and up to 1 TB of SSD storage depending on the configuration.

We also have three different USB ports:

One USB 3.1 Type-C, One USB 3.0, and one USB 2.0 port. But there’s even a Thunderbolt 3 port which allow you to connect to up to two external 4K displays.

On the free of mind side, we also have the Active Pen 2 that acts as the Surface pen, with a clickeable button for Windows Ink offering up to 4,096 levels of pressure for those who need the most precise experience possible.

All that powered by an still unknown capacity battery that Lenovo promises delivers 8 hours of working time that also let you use it as a huge power bank with an “Always On” USB port which will charge up your smartphone even when the slate is off.

The Mix 720 will be available in April with a price tag that starts at $999.99 (Keyboard included) The Active Pen 2 will be sold separately and starts at $59.99, available early in February.

Availability of colors is a different history as there’s only two options to choose from: Champagne Gold and Iron Gray .

Surface Pro 5 is rumored to be unveiled in March, so What do you think? Wild the 2-in-1 from Lenovo be a good competitor to the Surface Line?
