The Miix2 is only 8.35mm thick and weighs only 350g. So not only is the screen great for things like reading and watching movies – it’s thin and lightweight too. You get two webcams on the device – a 5 megapixel camera on the back and a 2 megapixel camera on the front. On the inside, the Miix 2 is powered by Intel’s Bay Trail-T quad core processor based on Intel’s Atom S architecture. It also has integrated Intel HD Graphics. And the Miix 2 comes with up to 128GB* of eMMC onboard storage which is expandable up to 32GB with micro-SD slot.

*32GB and 64GB configurations also available.

The Miix2 comes pre-installed with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013, allowing you to easily view, edit and manage your documents right out of the box.
